White Sox GM Rick Hahn says talk of trade-deadline discord ‘simply untrue’

A pair of recent media reports suggested Hahn trade-deadline strategy clashed with that of executive vice president Ken Williams and Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, with Hahn favoring a rebuild. Those reports from Chicago radio and TV host David Kaplan and MLB reporter Jon Heyman again fueled the frequent speculation about how the front-office dynamic works between Hahn and Williams.

Hahn said the talk was “tired news and repetitive and there’s nothing there” and stressed there is “an open dialogue and exchange of ideas” between the trio before decisions are made as a group.

“The frustrating thing is it seems like every few months we need to have this same conversation,” Hahn said, noting he has been with the Sox for 16 years. “I have no idea where an unnamed, random report of any discord at the deadline came from. It’s simply untrue. There was no trade or direction vetoed, so to speak, at the deadline. We are of a similar mindset as to how best to proceed.”
