Will Rick Hahn’s assistant GM status be a plus or a minus?

Waldstein @ NYT:

When the Mets interview Rick Hahn on Tuesday for their general manager opening, he will have one distinct advantage over other candidates. Hahn, the assistant general manager of the Chicago White Sox, attended the University of Michigan, the beloved alma mater of Fred Wilpon, the Mets’ principal owner. That should prove beneficial.

But there is one drawback that could thwart his candidacy from the outset: Hahn’s role as an assistant.

Padilla @ ESPN:

If you squint at it and adjust our eyes just so, White Sox assistant general manager Rick Hahn could be the Mets’ hand-picked choice to be their new general manager.

… There are a couple of things Hahn has going for him that set him apart from the other candidates. No. 1, Hahn is a Michigan graduate just like Mets principal owner Fred Wilpon. No. 2 — and this one is more revealing — is that one of the stated interests in a new Mets GM is an assistant that is viewed as an up-and-comer.

Time for Phil Rogers’ words of wisdom!
