In July 2011, SportsIllustrated.com ranked Hahn as the #1 General Manager Candidate in Major League Baseball.

Following the 2007 season, Hahn withdrew his name from consideration for the General Manager's job of the St. Louis Cardinals, who eventually named John Mozeliak to the position, and he also declined the opportunity to interview for the Pittsburgh Pirates GM job prior to Neal Huntington being named to that post.
