Default Hahn on Manny Miss...

Spoke with Scott Merkin:

I thought Scott asked some good questions.

I can't help but feel the front office does not do itself any favors with how it responds to these questions.

I get the sense that the Sox don't/didn't covet Harper nearly as much as Machado which is kind of strange to me considering Harper has less baggage in terms of character and some argue, a higher ceiling. Then again, the Sox are much deeper in the OF. It might also have to do with reluctance to work with Boras.

Classic Hahnspeak. Sound intelligent but say nothing of substance and meanwhile status quo remains. I know people despise when Kenny speaks but I'm getting the same annoyance with Hahn. Fade into the background and get a damn deal done that helps this team. And then maybe I'll consider giving any stock to what he says.

Agreed. Moncada and Madrigal are the answer to missing out on Machado? We better hope so! They both have talent, but are far from proven.

Anyway, talk is cheap. "The resources are going to be there"....I'll believe it when I see it. KW better keep those sunglasses handy if the Sox think they'll land premium talent on suppressed-market prices and with creative incentive-laden deals.

Struck out completely on FA
Farm system tumbled down the rankings
Future rotation suffering injury after injury
Position players not developing out

This has been a BAD offseason for the rebuild. Thank God for Eloy

I saw a tweet where an upset fan wrote, "the White Sox need to rebuild the rebuild..." LOL

I don't care who's talking, who's playing, just win.

We really have no idea if anyone on this team is the next Machado or Harper, or if they won't be.

It's baseball, enjoy it. Or don't, Go to the games, don't go. Pay attention, or forget about them, whatever.

I love the White Sox whether they make me crazy or happy, I'm just glad that they are in Chicago.

I can get on with my life either way. No boohooing from me.

If that's why they didn't go all out for Harper that's so stupid. With him and Eloy you have 2/3 of your outfield locked up for a decade. Then you can trade OF depth for pitching/other needs.


What an awful offseason

Yep. He says so much and sounds smart saying it while saying absolutely nothing at all. Great questions from Merkin but the usual runaround crap from Hahn.

This is what he should say:

We were being cheap, we want to be cheap and will continue to do so, because we enjoy losing!!
