(WSCR) A year after Ozzie Guillen left the White Sox for Miami, a long-anticipated change was made to the team’s front office as Kenny Williams was promoted and Rick Hahn took over as general manager.
Ultimately, the decision to hire Robin Ventura and institute a rapid 180 culture change in the clubhouse was Williams’ final bold move as GM.
But what if the front office shake-up had happened a year or two earlier? What if Rick Hahn, who Guillen always got along with, had become GM sooner than he did? Is there a chance Guillen would still be the manager of the White Sox?
“Oh, of course, yes,” Guillen said Friday on The Mully And Hanley Show on 670 The Score. “But to be honest with you, I don’t want to put Kenny on the spot like I left because of Kenny. I left because at that time, they couldn’t guarantee me an extension. Not because of Kenny.”
