To Kenny:


Don't care what anyone says about him, it was as exciting as hell to have someone who went for it as consistently as he did. Hope Hahn has some of those same instincts.

Oh yeah and thanks for 2005.

I kinda think Williams will still be involved and the guy above Williams.

I hope Hahn does a better job at drafting.

I'm not so sure. I think that Hahn will take over the GM duties in actuality as well as in title. I expect that KW will spend more time with player development and, given his emphasis on high ceiling picks, that is a good thing.

Thanks, Kenny, for all you've done over the years. One of the most exciting GMs in Sox history in terms of going for the big prize and taking risks that sometimes panned out (Thome, Garcia) and sometimes didn't (Ritchie, Koch, Dunn ca. 2011).

Congratulations, Rick. You deserve a shot, and I'm glad it's with us.

Now get to work.

He's saying that he thinks Hahn is going to be the Gar Forman to KW's John Paxson, meaning that even though Hahn is the G.M., it's more of a figurehead spot, while KW will still be pretty much the G.M. when it comes down to actually making player/personnel decisions.

Which I think is false. I think this is Hahn's baby now, and while Kenny surely will still have input, the decisions will rest on Hahn's shoulders.

Hahn is considered more conservative in his baseball approach than Kenny was.

If you've ever met Rick Hahn, you'd know that he's not anyone's lackey, he's taking over and will put his own stamp on the organization.

You don't think Gar is lightyears better as a GM than Pax?
