I just wrote a piece for The Faster Times about the deadline moves that Chicago White Sox General Manager Ken Williams made. I thought Alex Rios was, as I wrote three weeks ago, Williams' $60 million mistake. And trading for the injured Jake Peavy also made very little sense.
Now, just a few weeks after taking on over $110 million for just two players, Williams raises the white flag. I understand getting rid of Jose Contreras - he has been awful as of late - but the Jim Thome trade is strange on both sides. Go here to read why I think that.
