Pirates Hire Hurdle

As I'm sure you've heard by now the Pirates have named Clint Hurdle the new manager. He will be the 47th manager in Pirates history, and the first one named Clint.

I feel pretty "meh" about this singing. The Pirates could have done a whole lot worse than Hurdle, and the man clearly deserves a shot. He was pretty good in Colorado, getting them to the World Series one year, but he has a losing record with the team.

There will be an 11 AM press conference to announce the singing tomorrow. No word on who will be on his staff, but I really hope he isn't pressured to keep anyone on. If the Pirates are serious about changing the culture they have to let their manager change it.
