As expected, Sox Promote Kenny Williams and Rick Hahn

The White Sox announced Rick Hahn as their new general manager. The move has been in the works for quite some time, and was reported right before the season ended. Current general manager Kenny Williams is being promoted to executive vice president under the new arrangement. Hahn has been a popular candidate for GM jobs in the past. He’s either interviewed, or been asked to interview with at least five teams.Hahn will be entering his 13 season with the club. He’s well respected within the organization, and has been an instrumental part of negotiating contracts with prominent White Sox players. While Hahn has more of an analytical background, Williams has sent him on scouting trips in recent years. There is no doubt that Han will be very busy this offseason for many reasons.
