I don't think that's the case. The small moves are similar to KW small moves and those were usually applauded. For me, the difference is that Hahn hasn't traded a legitimate prospect...KW frequently did. And the Eaton and Davidson moves are simply dissimilar from any move KW ever made. KW's modus operandi would have been to try to get those players using Johnson, Semien, etc. I like the change in philosophy.
