Rick Hahn knows sabermetrics side of business but listens to baseball people too

Hahn polynomials exponents abound! (okay…maybe not)

Despite Hahn’s contractual and statistical expertise, the Sox haven’t shifted entirely in the sabermetrics direction.

“The advantage we have here is that Rick Hahn is a great listener,” assistant GM and former third base standout Buddy Bell said Sunday at a seminar. “He listens to the baseball people. He wants to learn about that side as we want to learn about having that sabermetrics side. It’s unreasonable to think that won’t help us.

“And I think sometimes when you’re looked upon as more of an old-school guy, I don’t think it’s old school or new school. The right way of doing things is using all the resources you have to make you smarter, to make you make a better decision. In this system, it’s a lot easier for us because we have a good mix and good listeners.”

Well said, Buddy Bell.
