White Sox GM Says He Offered to Step Aside
CHICAGO (AP) -- White Sox general manager Ken Williams says he offered to step aside or take another job in the organization after some of his offseason moves failed to pan out and the team floundered.

Williams made his comments in the dugout the day after manager Ozzie Guillen was released from his contract with one year remaining. Guillen is expected to become the Marlins' new manager.

Williams says he made the offer to owner Jerry Reinsdorf and would have understood if the White Sox wanted to put someone else in his seat. Chicago will miss the playoffs for a third straight season.

Williams reiterated Tuesday he has a short list of candidates to replace Guillen and already has started to work on finding a successor.
