No news is no news, White Sox fans

Tuesday, in the world of White Sox off-season action; nothing happened. Well…something happened.  From various reports we can piece together that Reinsdorf and Williams met with Konerko’s agent, amounts were most likely discussed, and everything points to there being a disagreement in what was their proper size, etc. But as far as a confirmed transaction,...
