Why would you fire a coach because he had 3 bad seasons? They need to get rid of the owner, General Manager and whoever else is running the Pirates. They trade away all their good talent year in and year out. How can you coach a team when you can't even build around good talent.

How can ownership blame the manager when the only reason they field a team is to collect their big, fat revenue sharing checks?

This is like firing a cook because the food shipment didn't arive and there was not food. I feel bad for the Shitsburg fans, 18 years since the playoffs and a above .500 record. Just sad, should just quit. GO PHILLIES Back to Back to Back to Back NL east champs!
