The trade of Jake Peavy became official late on the night of July 30 but White Sox general manager Rick Hahn didn't face his toughest critic until the next morning.

It wasn't anyone from the media with Hahn speaking to reporters via a conference call following news of the deal. Instead it was Hahn's youngest son who called into question his father's motive for moving one of the White Sox veteran leaders and one of their top starting pitchers.

"He did literally say the morning after the Peavy trade 'Why are you making the team worse?'" Hahn said. "I tried to explain to him sort of a longer-term view and the benefit of what we were getting back and some of the flexibility. He was like 'I thought your job was to win games.'

"Sometimes they boil it down to the barest essence" added Hahn with a laugh.

Hahn's two young sons are not the only ones watching the first-year general manager's actions or wondering about the White Sox ability to rebuild into a contender. With only 10 games left on the schedule classify this season as disappointing and sometimes bordering on painful.

Now the focus falls on Hahn's next move or moves which take on the description of rebuilding reshaping or retooling. It might be better to term it as renewing the faith in a critical fan base that was as disappointed with this current campaign as every member of the organization.

A plan has been put in place by Hahn and his staff. As he spoke about earlier this season it's one featuring a greater scope than the success of this team in 2014 but certainly isn't sacrificing the upcoming season. It's about building a foundation addressing the many shortcomings and trying to find sustained success.

During a recent sitdown with Hahn was asked specifically about the White Sox blueprint.

"How long do you got?" Hahn quipped.

Long enough for Hahn to point out that the reshaping must be fluid with plenty of contingency plans because as the old Rolling Stones classic states "You can't always get what you want." All options to improve the team will be explored including free agency.
