Kenny responds with a non-denial:

if this is true it will be interesting to watch - I can't see Kenny letting go and not being actively involved with the GM duties which could cause a problem with Hahn. Kenny has always had the "difficult to work with" label, hope they have a clear understanding of their roles.

Makes sense though because JR is a fan of both and Hahn is highly regarded among mlb

Second best thing to letting him go. Good news all around!

I really doubt this changes much on how the team works. Maybe Hahn will just be in charge of the more day-to-day stuff as GM, but KW has ultimate say in major personnel moves. Much like the Bulls with GarPax.

This would be an interesting move to announce at this very point in time (if they even do).

The way I read it, it's more of a prediction than fact.

Well Jon Heyman is reporting it and stating it is "confirmed."

Given the timing of this I wonder if Hahn told JR that he would be seeking a GM gig somewhere else after this season if he wasn't bumped up here.

I suspect that if this is true it was agreed to at some point in the off season last year.

Not picking up his dumbass option is fine by me.

I just hope that they try to work out a (sane) deal with him after this season's done.

The media has seemed to put Hahn on a pedestal, but then they did same to Danny Evans too IIRC. I still gotta think KW will have a direct influence on what Hahn transacts

Hahn has been a highly sought-after GM candidate for years now. I don't think he'd take a job as a puppet here when he could go just about anywhere and build a team exactly how he wants to.

I'm feeling another GarPax situation here.
