The Twins went into Chicago and won the first two games of their weekend series before being shut out by Mark Buehrle, which didn't sit well with White Sox GM Ken Williams. "I'm open for business," says Williams. "If things don't work, I'll be willing to make some major changes."
Last year, Williams went out and got Carl Everett and Roberto Alomar early in the trading season, and already he is trying to get another starting pitcher and see if he can work a deal where he trades a right-handed bat for a left-handed hitter.
"We're a little unbalanced," says Williams. However, one person he is not looking to replace is closer Billy Koch, heart attacks or no heart attacks. "I am very happy with Billy, and believe he will have a big season," says Williams. "He's getting used to what he has. He's not going to throw 98 or 99 (mph) anymore, but he's 94, he uses it, and he's starting to get confidence in his curveball, which he never needed before. He will be the least of our problems."
