VIDEO: White Sox GM Kenny Williams Talks About Kevin Youkilis Trade

"At this point in time, we owe it to our fans and the men in that clubhouse in uniform to try to exhaust ourselves to be the best team we can possibly be."

These are the words of Chicago White Sox general manager Kenny Williams, who just completed a trade to bring longtime Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis to the South Side. Brent Morel couldn't hit, and the White Sox needed more offensive and defensive production than the recently signed Orlando Hudson could provide. Youkilis was only batting .233/.315/..377 in Boston this season, but the move still seems like a potentially low risk, high reward trade for the White Sox.

From Comcast SportsNet Chicago comes this video of Williams talking about his latest acquisition.
