    General manager Rick Hahn quoted a couple of history’s greatest philosophers when describing the White Sox’s presentation to prized Japanese free agent Shohei Ohtani. “‘You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take,’ said Wayne Gretzky and Michael Scott,” Hahn said Friday. “So that’s our approach...
