White Sox GM Kenny Williams doesn't see any weaknesses on his team.
After going out and adding third baseman Kevin Youkilis, relief pitcher Brett Myers and starter Francisco Liriano, White Sox GM Kenny Williams believes that he's set the club up to continue making a run for a division title in 2012.
That being the case, Williams realizes that while the non-waiver trade deadline has passed, his work is far from done, as he told MLB.com's Scott Merkin:
It's a mistake to sit in this chair and feel like there's not one more move to make. So, I will constantly challenge our staff to find that one more move, that difference maker. Sometimes the difference maker isn't an impact player. Sometimes it's a fit here or there. That's the best way I can put it. We are always looking for that one more move.
This is a different situation because we are where we are and we don't have a lot of positions where if you claim somebody they're going to come in and play. And then once you start talking about those possibilities you take away, I think, from your club and the people that have brought you to this point.
So I'd rather not get into it and talk about it. We have what we have right here and we'll fight together with these guys. You certainly don't want to allow teams with better records than you to capitalize on players. The fortunate thing when you're on top of your division is you're darn near last in the claiming order. So it helps me from doing something stupid.
While I believe Liriano is a risky proposition to count on down the stretch, it's hard to find a real weakness on the White Sox as they are presently constituted.
A tweak here or there might be in order as we get deeper into August, but for the most part, what you see is what you get—and that might be enough to bring a division title and a deep playoff run back to Chicago.
