Rick Hahn says there's no hurry to make trades as he approaches his first winter meetings as general manager of the Chicago White Sox.
While Chicago could have opening at third base and catcher, Hahn maintains he has the luxury of time and flexible finances heading into next week's gather of baseball executives.
''There's nothing magical about being down there in Nashville that means something has to happen,'' Hahn said during a Thursday conference call. ''We're going to wait until it's right to pull the trigger and make a decision based on what the alternatives are and the respective costs. That may well take us two weeks, or it may well take past the first of the year as we get close to spring training.''
The 41-year-old, who spent the past 12 years as a White Sox executive, became GM in October when Ken Williams was promoted to executive vice president.
''Even though who's having the conversation is different, the priorities and the intent remain the same,'' Hahn said.
