Brewers GM hints at White Sox interest
ARLINGTON -- When asked by MLB.com on Friday about the White Sox reported interest in Zack Greinke, general manager Ken Williams responded via e-mail with a direct, "No comment." But Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin shed some light Saturday on Williams' intense pursuit of this impact starting pitcher, who eventually was moved to the Angels.

"Kenny worked really hard at it," Melvin told reporters. "I probably received as many texts from him [as anyone else]. It just wasn't a match."

Williams also tried to involve a third team in order to facilitate the deal, with his Minor League system apparently not possessing the necessary prospects and Williams not wanting to break up the Major League roster for his first-place team.

"That gets complicated on that big a deal," said Melvin of involving a third team.
