|GM Williams Has Confidence in Slumping White Sox
|NEW YORK (AP) -- White Sox general manager Ken Williams is taking a patient approach with his struggling ballclub.
Williams traveled to New York after Chicago lost for the 10th time in 11 games Sunday. The White Sox haven't scored a run in two games and face the first-place Yankees Monday night.
The White Sox were expected to compete for the AL Central title this year after bringing in slugger Adam Dunn and increasing the team's payroll to about $125 million. But in the topsy-turvy division, Chicago is in last place at 8-14, 5-1/2 games back of Cleveland.
Williams says he was at Yankee Stadium to offer hugs and support for his players, and says he has full confidence in manager Ozzie Guillen and the coaching staff.
