Danks endorses Hahn for Cubs' GM job

Count Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks among those who believe Rick Hahn would be a good choice as the Chicago Cubs' next general manager.

Hahn, who is the Sox vice president/assistant GM, is considered one of the top GM prospects in baseball. And Danks, appearing on "Chicago Gamenight" on ESPN 1000 on Tuesday said Hahn would be a good choice for any team.

"I think he'd be a good GM anywhere," Danks said. "I know there's a lot of interest, just from the whispers you hear around the field.

"He's very good at what he does. He and [GM Ken Williams] do a good job working together. I think Rick will be successful wherever he goes."

ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine reported that Hahn has a clause in his contract allowing him to talk to a handful of teams about a GM opening, and the Cubs are on that list. Hahn was a finalist for the New York Mets job last year.
