    Caulfield, easily one of the worst posts in Soxtalk history right here.

    Rick Hahn was named GM in late October, 2012. He was assistant GM beginning in 2002. But just looking at his run as “the guy”.....he didn’t have a winning season in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019......it took a COVID-shortened season for him to achieve his first winning record as GM, and the Sox won one game in the Playoffs. He has been the man in charge for 8+ seasons and has 1 playoff victory to his name. No, I will not be apologizing to Rick Hahn. As others have said, it would be far more appropriate for the organization to apologize to us.

    Bah…..apologize? He should apologize to us for how long we’ve been waiting and nothing has really been accomplished yet. It’s still early in the season but “we” should apologize? That’s ridiculous.

    It's always funny to see you stan for larussa over and over again.

    Ok, I'm game: 1. Apologize? For what, exactly? 2. Looking at Hahn's record as GM, what, exactly, has he accomplished? 3. Some of his key acquisitions over the years have taken a giant shit. Some that are CURRENTLY with this team haven't worked out, or have not worked out as well as hoped. Where has he been right, where most of us have been wrong? 4. This feels like trying to "spike the football" before crossing the end zone. Exactly what has been won in this season? Thanks in advance.

    I have nothing against Rick Hahn, but I don't think I have to apologize to him. What am I, as a fan, have to be sorry for? Going on 13 years without a division title which is the second longest such stretch since divisional play began in 1969? The rebuild is shaping up, but the White Sox haven't won anything yet. We will see if this process truly works out and how serious this franchise is about winning.

    Every metric has this team as one of baseball's best. Sure things can go wrong, but about 1/6 of the way this club looks pretty loaded. Even the fringe guys are doing enough, often enough to help the club win. At this point, and once again -- it's early, the greatest worry perhaps to have is that a richer club decides to give Hahn the keys this offseason.

    No team has depth that can replace Jimenez and Robert, dude

    I don’t mind Phil, but did he just call Jimbo a spoiled White Sox fan? How can anyone be a spoiled White Sox fan?

    Elite man management, bro! Leury garcia has played 7 games in the past 7 days. Lol Meanwhile Vaughn, Yermin, and Madrigal have had 5 games off total. It gets dumber though because Tony was already wanting to play Jake Lamb today anyway because he can't have a game where at least two bench bats play, gotta keep them from getting stale while the starters have the texture of croutons because of how little they've played

    Hahaha...deliberately trying to spark an argument, aren’t you? Well, Abreu, Grandal, Giolito, Keuchel and Hendriks have combined for something like -0.6 value, but the Sox are still sitting pretty with everything in the division resting on the Royals’ starting pitching somehow holding up. Right now, I would happily hand over the organization to the Brewers, Giants (new GM has hit FA pitcher after FA pitcher right on the head), Astros, Dodgers, Cardinals, Braves, Rays, A’s, Indians, etc., front offices and not even blink. Heck, I will throw in Kim Ng from Miami fir good measure. But, with the requirement there be a payroll floor of $150 million going forward in order to legitimately compete for a World Series title. A stronger GM stands in the way of JR and forces his owner to choose between sentimental heart/emotion and rational logic/pragmatism and risk mitigation, which Hahn mostly represents. If he’s actually as coveted as everyone claims, he should easily be able find another top position despite the clearly less than stellar FA and drafting record.

    Lock this shit up and let the other dude start a game thread. Bad mojo already.

    And you know he just wanted to start the thread because he wanted to make a point about the Cleveland team name.

    Tony La Russa's baseball IQ is so ridiculously high, most of us simply can't understand the moves he is making. He is truly a baseball savant. 300 IQ.

    So fired up - Fields has so much upside. I heard a former gm on radio today - said he was being asked by so many why fields was falling on boards (media perception). Said he talked to scouts for multiple teams - who apparently said whose boards - cause he was the clear #2 qb on their boards and they weren’t moving any of the other guys with helium up. I think Fields at 11 could be the steal of the draft in a few years and if it isn’t - oh well. Go big or go home at qb. Let’s go!

    I don't understand the good news.evenif its mild, which it didn't appear to be, he is going to be out several weeks. He still could miss a couple of months.

    I mean the evidence was his job title was literally GM. I like Hahn but this insistence on giving hahn credit for the very very little success he's had in his tenure and blaming the failures on everyone else is laughable. Kenny, as GM, WON more than hahn and everyone blames Kenny for failures. It's wild.

    I appreciate the awesome extensions, but as far as FA and actually winning and results, and basically the big picture go... Hahn is unequivocally a failure. It's really not arguable. You can blame Jerry for some of it and that is fair but how the team does is going to reflect on him and his FA acquisitions (and lack of them) for the most part have been abysmal.

    Yermin needs to take accountability, his actions are hurting the team now.

    You’re a sadly obsessed person. I’m assuming it’s because they won yesterday and it’s his thread at this point. Honestly did not know. I joined late last season. Any other “unwritten rules” new posters should be aware of?

    Mercedes showed up late and got scratched.

    Wouldn’t a lineup change indicate there’s some type of physical reason why Mercedes was scratched? The Sox are 15-11. Try to enjoy our good team a little.

    Rick Hahn is amazing. We are lucky to have him. Some people in our LaRusstans discord group were talking about making Instagram stan accounts for Ricky/Jerry/Tony/Kenny so they all know how much they’re appreciated.
