Comment of the Day: Kenny Williams should chill

6 Comments

I don’t necessarily think that Ozzie has a valid point here, if his son is not a legitimate prospect.  That said, I can understand him having higher expectations given that 2008 6th round draft pick Ken Williams Jr. is hitting .222/.314/.344 as a 24 year old in high A.  Blatant nepotism is only appreciated when everybody gets to benefit.

— The Common Man, reminding us that the White Sox drafting Ozzie Guillen’s son may have been less a favor than it was a standard industry practice.

Aaron touched on this the other day.  I still think the worst one ever was when the Braves drafted John Schuerholz, Jr. — son of the GM — a few years ago . . . and kept promoting him despite the fact that he had no demonstrable baseball skills.
