White Sox Adam Dunn: WORST. SEASON. EVER. Fire Ken Williams!

Manager Ozzie Guillen was let go by the Chicago White Sox last week, but the man who should have been cut was GM Kenny Williams. Williams has made so many bad trades, and HORRIBLE free agent signings that he was the one who really deserved to be cut.
