But I would assume he was not Hahn's hire. A GM trying to rebuild a team needs his own manager and coaching staff. JR assumed that the best replacement for his longtime SS turned manager was his longtime 3rd baseman. Hopefully Hahn gets to make the decision going forward. Although Thome may be already auditioning for the spot.
