Liam Hendriks has never really been shy about things when he speaks. He is the best quote on the entire Chicago White Sox staff. Whenever someone asks him something, he responds with whatever is on his mind and people love him for it.
That continued on Thursday when he appeared on Waddle and Silvy of ESPN 1000. He certainly had a lot of things to say about the White Sox. He also said something that is catching the attention of a lot of people in regards to Dallas Keuchel.
Earlier in the month, a report came out from Bob Nightengale of USA Today about the fact that the Chicago White Sox locker room was having problems. It was a rather concerning report if it were true because it is hard to win and go on a run in an environment like that.
Hendriks was asked about this and his response was very telling. He wondered out loud if the report was coming from someone that was on the team earlier in the year but no longer is. The only person with a reputation that suggests Liam is talking about him is Dallas Keuchel.
Liam Hendriks made it seem like Dallas Keuchel was the one starting rumors.
You might remember the fact that Dallas had little to no accountability when it came to his awful pitching. It always seemed to be everyone else’s fault except for his. Since then, the White Sox have DFA’d him and he has moved on to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Since leaving, things have not gotten better for him in terms of his pitching. He seems to be out of whatever it was that made him a Cy Young-winning World Series champion back in the day. It wouldn’t be surprising one bit if this report was leaked from him.
Hopefully, regardless of where this rumor came from, the White Sox are able to look past it and get on track. Following this interview on the radio, the White Sox went out and had a 12-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins at their house.
It was their most important win of the season and one that could get them on a winning path. There is still a lot of season left to go and the White Sox aren’t going away any time soon. Liam Hendriks has been on fire lately as well which helps this team win big games late.
