He has two last names. Can't be a good sign.

And I'm very wary of anyone related to the Cubs with the last name Hawkins.

Carter is cool because it reminds me of who made the final out in the 1998 Wild Card tiebreaker

Great FO to poach from but man was I rooting for James Harris from the same club. Hopefully Hawkins can poach a couple more for his staff (Harris, maybe Victor Wang come to mind) with promotions

I just appreciate this diversity hire, taking a guy from a non-Ivy.

I don’t have issues with his qualifications and he seems as good a bet as any candidate to help the org, but it’s a real missed opportunity to break up the homogeneity of the FO’s decision makers. Especially since the Epstein executive tree has not covered itself in glory on or off the field recently.

eh Cleveland isn't really one of the first teams i'd want to poach FO talent from, especially considering their most notable recent standout successes likely just stemmed from doctoring the ball

If I saw this picture without any context, I'd assume he was just elected U.S. Representative for some backwater district in Texas.

I agree with Sox fans in this respect: It's far easier to hate this team then it is to love it

I'd put heavy money that he and Madison Cawthorn would be best friends if they met.
