For personal reasons, I hope Rick Hahn stays on as the White Sox' assistant GM. Not only is a great help when it comes to finances and such, Rick is just a solid person. Talk to him and you'd never know he has a Harvard Law degree and MBA from Northwestern. Rick's as down to earth as they come in this game, and he's got the sense of humor, too. Is he GM material? I'll put it this way - I was stunned when the Mets chose Sandy Alderson as their new GM over Hahn last off-season. Fortunately for the Cubs, Rick is still available and he's got the baseball experience, financial smarts, knowledge of the game and drive to do a great job. Kenny Williams certainly thinks Hahn would be a great get for the Cubs, and so does Ozzie. KW: "I've made no secret about it. Rick Hahn is, to me, one of the most qualified men to assume the position moving forward. What Mr. Ricketts does is his own business. He's a guy that's had a lot of success in business and in his world, and his world over there is none of my business at this point in time. But if he called for a recommendation on Rick Hahn, I absolutely would give him my highest." Ozzie: "Not my department, but looking from the outside in he's very prepared, he has gone through everything in the system, he knows baseball very well and helped this organization. This man is very prepared. I don't know if they are going to talk to him. I talk to Rick all the time, he knows baseball." Here are tonight's lineups as the Sox try staying alive in the AL Central: WHITE SOX Pierre - LF Lillibridge - 1B Konerko - DH Quentin - RF Ramirez - SS Rios - CF Flowers - C Morel - 3B Beckham - 2B Peavy - RHP RANGERS Kinsler - 2B Andrus - SS Hamilton - CF Young - 3B Cruz - RF Napoli - 1B Moreland - DH Torrealba - C Murphy - LF Harrison - LHP
