White Sox TalkWilliams, when asked about Cespedes and Soler: "Who are they? Are they any good? Should we be scouting them?" SoxFest

Williams then declined to answer the fan's question about the pair. Either the Sox payroll actually is maxed out, or Kenny Williams wants others to think that to keep the team's interest in CespedesSoler out of the headlines. Or maybe the Sox actually aren't in on either Cuban defectors and Williams didn't want to let that fan down.

Either way, it's worth noting that Williams rarely talks about potential transactions, even if numerous reports have the Sox interested in that player. That he was playing coy doesn't answer any questions, and no outcome of the CespedesSoler sweepstakes should surprise anyone.
