GM of the year? Williams doubts his chances

SHARE GM of the year? Williams doubts his chances

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.
