Let's talk

Chicago White Sox general manager Ken Williams is expected to speak to the media on Friday before the Sox host the Boston Red Sox.

As strange as that may seem, no one from the White Sox has spoken about Monday night's trade of Jim Thome or Jose Contreras up until this point.

Williams is scouting the minor leagues right now, looking at some players on playoff-contending teams. The Sox have four minor-league clubs that will be in the playoffs.
