Pitchers and catchers are off and running at Spring Training. That is always the first step for all 30 teams each year. This year is exciting for Chicago White Sox fans because a roster has been assembled over multiple years of rebuilding. That has resulted in a very good team that is built for sustained success. In order for that to happen, they need to execute on the field but the talent is certainly there to do it.

Rick Hahn believes that big things are coming for the Chicago White Sox.

If the leader of the organization doesn’t believe that they can win, who else should? Rick Hahn got us started on Wednesday with some quotes but one of them is the best quote you will hear all Spring Training long. He told the media that it is a disappointment if they don’t win the World Series. That is the confidence that this team needs at the top. It is awesome to have a GM that is willing to say things like that. Hopefully, the players agree.

It wasn’t just a hype-up interview either. Rick Hahn also gave some very important updates on a lot of different things. He let us know that Nick Madrigal’s rehab is going well, the plan on Andrew Vaughn this Spring Training, and how he plans to handle Garrett Crochet and Michael Kopech. These are all things that are very important for this organization.

Rick Hahn is a very good general manager. Things were going well early on in his tenure but he has certainly fixed it. The day he traded Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox was the day that this thing got turned around. If it didn’t work, it probably would have cost him his job but it has not only worked but exceeded expectations. Pretty much every trade and international free agent signing he has made seem to be working since that day. They also started drafted well as of late too.

Of course, of all of the things that Rick Hahn said, being disappointed by not winning the World Series this year was the most notable. His rebuild of this team is over in his head. That is very exciting to hear even if we assumed it to be true anyway. This team’s future is very bright and it is going to be so fun to watch.
