The White Sox have led the American League Central for 81 days and every day since July 24. But general manager Ken Williams deflected talk of post-season honors going his way just yet.
“It’s not going to happen. If you don’t win it when you win a World Series, you ain’t going to win it,” he said of not winning the general manager of the year honor in 2005 when the Sox were champs. “If I wasn’t listening to all the things people were saying about the outlook for this season [being] less than bright, then I’m certainly not going to listen now [to talk of winning the honor]. And I don’t have time to listen now when we’re in a fight of our lives with Detroit [for the division.]
“One bad week and I’ll be back to being the village idiot pretty quickly,” he said.
