Default Bob Nightengale Reports that Rick Hahn is New Sox GM; Kenny Williams to President

The article he links too doesn't mention that, but take it for what it is worth.

Timing seems odd. I guess at this point, Kenny's main duties are finished for the season.

I am not so sure that this is going to happen as I haven't seen it reported anywhere else, but I suppose it lets Kenny leave on top (assuming the White Sox win the division) and allows Hahn to get the promotion he has been in line for for awhile.

I would assume that, if true, these are changes that would officially take effect at some point in the off-season.

When did Schueler resign? Wasn't it the day after the World Series? I assume that that is how it would work here as well if this is true.

This means that a GM job for Rick Hahn with any other team represents a lateral move. This is a pretty savvy move by Jerry Reinsdorf if the report turns out to be true.

Kind of crazy. May or may not be true, we'll have to see.

Also, there's a similar blurb out there saying Peavy's option isn't getting picked up, which is an even worse case of bad timing.

I was always a bit afraid of Hahn taking over, since promotions from within to GM usually don't work too well, and he may sit still (more than Kenny) on a payroll-cutting offseason with more focus on rebuilding than competing.

Say what you want about Kenny, but the guy has done a great job here and has always tried to push the envelope to get a better team on the field than ownership would had they their druthers.

I seem to recall reading a thread on WSI that the board of directors was not happy with Kenny and that he would be replaced at the end of the year. That was back in March when a lot of people thought that the White Sox would be terrible.

I think so. I guess they'd make the change now so Hahn can start on working on the team for next year. There's probably plenty of bull**** that needs to get done under the radar. No worrying about the chain of command, if true.

The only way his option was getting picked up was if he won the Cy Young this year, and even then, probably not.

Yeah it's fairly obvious, but why leak it now?
