Officially, there's only one general manager of the Chicago White Sox. But unofficially, there are thousands.

Yes, everyone has an opinion about what moves Kenny Williams should make. I hear them all the time.

Like today, my friend Mike gave me his grand plan to fix the Sox. His idea? Shake up the locker room by bringing back all of the bad seedsclownstroublemakers from seasons past (Carl Everett, Orlando Cabrera, Carlos Lee, Nick Swisher, Scott Eyre, Willie Harris, etc.), trade for Manny Ramirez and Carlos Zambrano, bring back Terry Bevington as bench coach (that was my idea), mix them all together with A.J. Pierzynski, and youll have the Oakland Raiders circa 1972.

Mike was joking. I think.

So let's pretend Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf calls you on the phone today, and gives you the keys to the kingdom for about 15 seconds.

What would you do? Who would you sign? Who would you trade?

Post your comments below. Be smart, be creative, be daring. Maybe Kenny will read them. Maybe not. The forum is yours.
