Ventura's focus 'on playing with what we got'
CHICAGO -- General manager Kenny Williams said Monday the White Sox would go after a top pitcher, if possible, before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline.

Manager Robin Ventura would be thrilled to get a top-of-the-rotation arm for the stretch run, but said Tuesday he isn't banking on such a decision and is prepared to battle the first-place Tigers and third-place Indians with what he has.

"I don't think anybody can plan on what's going to happen, so, for me, it's just do [what you can] with the people that we have," Ventura said. "I think that's all we can do, is play. The front office, they've got to do what they've got to do. They're looking, but you're not always going to get what you'd like to have. So, for us, the focus is on playing with what we got."
