Today the White Sox made official what was reported more than a month ago, promoting longtime general manager Ken Williams to executive vice president and naming Rick Hahn the new GM.

Hahn, who was Williams’ right-hand man for a long time and was frequently mentioned as a candidate for other teams’ GM openings, also gets the title of senior vice president in addition to GM.

Williams was MLB’s fifth-longest tenured GM with 12 years on the job, during which time the White Sox made the playoffs just twice but won the World Series in 2005 and had a winning record in all but three seasons.

    At what point do we start to worry about Craig? I mean, I know he’s on west coast time, so….noon eastern?

    No game updates last night….Lots of (prescribed) drug intake….San Francisco…

      Lying naked under a bridge somewhere after witnessing another Tigers loss?

        Flying from San Francisco to Detroit, no doubt. Talk about culture shock.

      Prescribed? By what – peer pressure?

    Don’t worry. The bums in the tenderloin have probably taken him in and are giving him the good stuff to console him. They have cardboard boxes and blankets to stave off the elements and his stupor.

    Kenny Williams promoted. Man, this has been a bad week for Slobbering Ozzie, hasn’t it?

    Seven years ago Ozzie and Kenny were on top of the world. Today Kenny moves inn to other job and Ozzie is looking for a job. As a Sox this run was fun.

    Ken Williams is the man. Any one that tells you that Frank Thomas is an idiot is calling it straight out. Frank is still trying to figure out what Ken said.
