Cowley: Williams Needs To Find A Plan For White Sox

CHICAGO (WSCR) Before this season, the Chicago White Sox did something uncharacteristic to the organization: They went out and spent a lot of money to make themselves a contender.

However, to this point in the season, the White Sox haven’t lived up to the high expectations that come with a high payroll.

As a result, both Ozzie Guillen and Kenny Williams have been criticized. Among those criticizing Williams has been Chicago Sun-Times columnist Joe Cowley. But Cowley says it’s not personal, he praised Williams when he deserved it, and now he deserves criticism.

“I think he should stay the general manager,” Cowley said on the Danny Mac Show. “I think people misconstrue that I Think that he should be fired, and that’s not what I’m saying.”

What Cowley wants is simple. He wants to see the same Kenny Williams that built a World Series Champion.

“Have a plan,” Cowley said. “Stick to the plan. I don’t even know what his plan is. Usually you have a feel about a general manager of what they want. I don’t know what Kenny wants anymore. I don’t know if Kenny knows what he wants anymore.”

    Cowley’s “friendship” with Ozzie Guillen’s son[s] has wrecked his [Cowley’s] focus because he gets so much information from the Kenny Williams alleged antagonists. I would like the sports talkers to ask Joe Cowley more about the friendship he has with the Guillen boys, they are Joe’s Gold Mine of Information.

    In one of Cowley’s recent Sun-Times columns, he wrote:

    “But at least in the past, Williams would own up to his mistakes. The last two years, not a peep.

    Maybe he’s feeling the pressure. Maybe the jealousy of Guillen being the face of the club is too much. What he needs to know is Guillen will get another job. Williams? Another GM job is questionable.

    On the eve of Round 2 of the crosstown showdown with the Cubs, what is apparent is Williams’ excuse-making is hurting the product more than helping it.

    The media guide says Williams is the GM.

    Time for him to start acting like it again or exit stage left.

    Page 8 can always be rewritten.”
