I dont think he'll be a puppet but I think it'l be like the changing of the guard for a bit. Remember the Corleone's from the Godfather Or at least until he figures out the remote for the retractable curtains....

Similar situation but Kenny and Rick don't suck at their jobs like GarPax.

After the season that Kenny has had, it would be a fitting time to call it a day,and let Hahn take all the brickbats for awhile. Kenny has kicked butt this year,and he can go out in a blaze of glory if the Sox finish strong.

Happy for Hahn if this is true,as he has been a loyal soldier for years,and from what I hear,he is good.

Sorry if this sounds foolish, but who currently holds the position that KW would be taking over, and where is that person going?

No one. Which is why I don't understand what changes under the current Sox regime except for job titles. Maybe Hahn becomes more of a day-to-day guy and KW steps back a bit, but it's not some radical change or change of regime for the Sox or anything like that.

Major benefit of being Prez is not having to deal as often (if ever) with the media. Also probably a whole lot less travel and late nights, unless you're the micromanagey type who can't let go.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I figured. Not exactly a regime change or anything like that.

No way this happens. Why would Hahn be GM in name only if he doesn't have the ability to make the moves he feels are best for the team? The guy has had GM interviews the last few years and has reportedly turned down offers to be a GM elsewhere. If he's staying, he's staying to be GM and not KW's puppet.

Job title and pay increase, I would think.

Jerry Reinsdorf's other team works the same exact way. John Paxson was the GM, got a promotion upstairs and isn't the day to day guy anymore, GM Gar Forman is.

White Sox are not confirming or denying anything. "We are focused on trying to get to the playoffs."

So like the old Lucchino/Epstein setup in Boston and now the Epsten/Hoyer for the cubs. What other teams have a President/GM set up like this?

When Kenny and Rick build a team that finishes with the best record in the league two seasons in a row or get us to a conference/league finals/championship series in the last six years, let me know.

How many teams in baseball can claim to have done that?
