06:45 AM ET 12.06 | After absorbing an avalanche of criticism over his latest failed attempt to improve a 90-loss team, White Sox general manager Ken Williams fired back Wednesday night at a spectrum of targets. "It was disappointing," Williams said of the negative reaction following the blockbuster trade that saw rival Detroit land Florida third baseman Miguel Cabrera, a Sox target. He would say only that there has been "dialogue in a number of circles" relating to possible acquisitions while confirming the negative reactions "definitely" will affect his relationship with the media. He also said he was fed up with other teams he believes were leaking information to reporters about the Sox's targets. "There are too many executives in Major League Baseball offices who have loose lips," Williams said. "If they didn't have loose lips, you guys wouldn't know about it and the rumors wouldn't get out."
