Quote of the Day: White Sox never pursued Oswalt

Jun 2, 2009, 1:29 PM EST

General manager Kenny Williams, on reports that Roy Oswalt would veto a trade to the White Sox:

You want me to respond to something we haven’t made an overture
towards? He probably hasn’t been asked the question, and someone has
written or talked about it as though it were something that was
imminent or a reality. And it’s not.

I really prefer not to get into confirming or denying something
because you tip your hand, and if you tip your hand, you don’t get
anything done. But I’ll make the exception so everyone can relax a
little bit. I haven’t talked to the Houston Astros about any pitching
whatsoever.

Of course, if the last-place Astros think of themselves as buyers at the trading deadline all of the Oswalt-to-Chicago speculation is a moot point anyway.
