(WSCR) It’s no secret White Sox general manager Kenny Williams is one of the most aggressive GMs in the game.
With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, Williams has already made three major moves with the additions of Kevin Youkilis, Brett Myers and, most recently, Francisco Liriano. Even though the club has done more in the trade market than most, one baseball expert thinks more moves could be coming from the South Side.
“I have to marvel at what the White Sox have done thus far, considering they supposedly have no farm system,” Jon Heyman of CBS Sports told The Mully and Hanley Show. “I kind of agree. Everyone thinks that their farm system is one of the weakest in the game. To have come up with Youkilis, Myers and and Lirano, that’s pretty good. They’ve done more than anybody, and they have less than anybody to give up. They still seem to be working. I know some teams have talked to them about Floyd.

“There seems to be a lot of intrigue around the White Sox still, even with the three guys in the fold already.”
Heyman also said the addition of Liriano could be bad news for the return of John Danks, who has been on the disabled list since May 20.
“There doesn’t seem to be a timetable for Danks at this point, so (the Liriano trade is a) very good move for them,” Heyman said. “Liriano has a lot of ability. He’s been somewhat up and down, but for a No. 5 starter, it’s pretty darn good.
