Got to wonder if Pittsburgh is ever wanting to leave the basement or not.

Hurdle would be a good coach but his record as a manager is horrible! He was a manager from 2002 to the beginning of 2009 and managed to compile only one winning season. Not exactly what I would consider management material.

If they were smart they would have hired Ryne Sandberg as the manager. Although he has no experience as a manager in the big leagues he has compiled an excellent winning record as a manager in every division of the minors and obviously knows how to handle younger players.

At this rate I should be able to buy the Pirates in the next few years for pocket change.
