White Sox general manager Rick Hahn met with media on Monday in the aftermath of a "historically bad road trip" and spread the blame beyond manager Robin Ventura to the entire team.

The Sox lost all seven games in Cleveland and Detroit — the franchise's first winless trip of seven games or more — to take a 10-game losing streak into Monday's game against the Yankees.

"I don't put this on any individual coach or the coaching staff as a whole or myself or the people in the front office" Hahn said after acknowledging the Sox haven't been playing fundamentally sound baseball. "I put it on all of us players included.

"The performance has not been at an acceptable level. We as a group collectively are to blame for this."

The Sox averaged 2.1 runs per game on the trip and showcased baserunning and defensive gaffes to spoil some solid efforts on the mound. Sox starting pitchers made eight quality starts in the 10 losses through Sunday.

Despite the lack of production Hahn said he believes hitting coach Jeff Manto is working "extraordinarily hard" in a job that has a "brutal" turn rate in baseball.

"I know that Jeff is extremely diligent is trying to get the message across to the guys and certainly isn't getting outworked by anyone" Hahn said. "Unfortunately the results haven't been on the field the way any of us hoped for including Jeff. It's certainly not for a lack of effort or communications."

Looking ahead: Hahn said he has remained busy after the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline examining possible moves.

"It is something on a daily basis that we are looking at and having conversations with other clubs about" Hahn said. "Just because we passed Aug. 1 it doesn't mean the activity has ceased."
