Sox Say No Pujols

Albert Pujols will surely be the most prized commodity on the free agent market if he does indeed decide to hold off on negotiations wi the Cardinals. But the Sox and Kenny Williams say they will not be in on the bidding if Pujols is indeed available during the next offseason.

Kenny says he doesn't expect to have the money to pull Albert off anyway, but says if Jerry were indeed to give him the 30 million it may take, he would use it on a multitude of players rather than pursuing just one.

I can't say I disagree with Kenny on this. But, I just don't believe Kenny really means this. Now I don't think the Sox will be serious players in the Pujols sweepstakes, but I do think that if the right opportunity arose that Kenny would not shy away from spending a huge hunk of money on a single player.

When Williams, Reinsdorf, and Guillen get their minds set on something, it usually happens... no matter the cost.

If someone who was worth that much could take the Sox from a contender to a favorite, you better believe the Sox would make that move. But when it comes to Pujols he just doesn't fit. Konerko is the 1B Dunn is he DH, and neither of them are going anywhere anytime soon. Nor are either cheap.

So while I do think the Sox would be willing t dish out the cash on a single player if the shoe fits, I truely believe Kenny when he says the Sox will be no where near the possible frenzy that is sure to ensue this coming winter.

But dont think that means this blog is immune to "The Decision" part two. Cause the North Siders are definitely going to be a huge player if Pujols is indeed available.
