On Monday, Rick Hahn went on ESPN’s Kap and J-Hood to discuss his Chicago White Sox team. The trade deadline moves are still fresh in everyone’s head and it comes with a lot of excitement. Rick Hahn certainly had some very interesting things to say about it all and it should fire up White Sox fans around the world.
He admitted that his team hasn’t won anything yet and they have a lot of work to do. Throughout it all, he has stayed humble knowing that they still need to go out there and do it. He has certainly given them the talent to do so.
Hahn also confirmed that everyone went into it knowing that Craig Kimbrel was their biggest target. He also had some very nice things to say about Nick Madrigal and Codi Heuer who he traded away to get Kimbrel. It is a great trade for the White Sox in every way but real recognizes real.
Adding pieces like Ryan Tepera and Cesar Hernandez were also big moves that Hahn made during the trade deadline week. As a result, the White Sox are a better team now than they were before this past week began. It is a lot of fun knowing that Rick and his staff are all in on winning the whole thing. They have as good of a chance as anyone.
The Chicago White Sox has something very special brewing on the south side.
Hearing Rick Hahn talk about this stuff is great but the players need to go out and win with what they have now. It is hard to say anything bad about the general manager because he has given them every opportunity to go out and win. You can tell how much he enjoys this as well during his interview.
He also had some nice things to say during the interview with David Kaplan and Jonathan Hood about Tony La Russa. He confirmed that nothing Tony does can surprise him because he is such a good manager. We all know the reason Tony was hired but hearing Hahn be all in on the guy makes it seem a little bit better.
Every White Sox fan should check out this interview because it is everything that you want to hear about your team and more. If the White Sox do make a deep playoff run that makes us all proud, Rick Hahn is going to get a lot of credit for it and he would deserve it all.
