    Hahn to resign

    Post by frank bonifacic on Tue Aug 16, 2016 4:36 pm

    Son just texted that Hahn is going to resign. Apparently wanted to rebuild and Kenny blocking trades.
    Hopefully that's impetus to get Kenny FIRED.

    I've heard that Sports Mockery cannot be taken seriously, but this report sounds right on.  I think many of us have suspected this since early in Hahn's reign (or lack of free rein).  Get Kenny out of the Sox business once and for all.

    According to article and twitter comments regarding it. It's speculation about Hahn but says he is very frustrated and there has been tension since last year.
    Said that Hahn said that there were INSANE OFFERS out there for Sox talent but williams wanted nothing to do with a rebuild

    Back when people were extolling the virtues of Hahn, I took some shit for saying that Kenny Williams would STILL be the one pulling the strings. Well...I hate to tell you I told you so...ah fuck it...I told you so!

    Yeah, well who knows about this latest saga.  Probably a fair amount of truth to it, but Hahn isn't necessarily in line for another GM job if he walks away from this one.  There are only 30 such jobs in the world, and guys don't usually give them up unless they're forced out.  So Hahn may decide to eat more shit from Williams and Reinsdorf and keep earning his $ 500-600K , as he has these past 4 seasons, rather than risk going out and getting another Asst GM job where he earns 1/3 of that.  It's not like Hahn has established a great  track record of spotting talent in his tenure here that teams will be beating a path to his door.  His excuse may be that Kenny throttled him constantly, but the storyline of being subservient to the great Kenny Williams won't exactly get Hahn a lot of mileage either. 
    Of course, Kenny may get Reinsdorf's permission to boot Hahn just like he did Ozzie to resolve any turmoil.   I don't see Reinsdorf backing Hahn over Williams in a push-shove contest.

    Kenny wouldn't have prevailed in his obstinate refusal to rebuild unless he convinced Reinsdorf to back him.  As long as Reinsdorf is in charge, chances of things changing aren't good.

    FUCK REINSDORF.


    Hahn is GM in title only.
    With Kenny looking over his shoulder he is an apprentice GM.


    Hahn's contract is up.


    This is AMERICA.


    Hope he does what HE WANTS and escapes this CREEPY organization.
