I disagree with his use of the bullpen early in the season BUT there is no reason to get rid of him. Some of you will argue the Pirate’s moves no matter what, and that’s what I see happening here. Frustrated fans who are just that, fans. You will never understand how it works until you have been on the other side of the fence.

Rod Barajas 321 AB. He should have been fired. He won’t give young players a chance, no matter how much his crappy vets suck.

It is amazing how owners can’t see the forest for the trees.

This is a proven and capable way of competing at the MLB level. Better decision making will help, and of the past few years I think with confidence I can agree that improvement has been made; not just in record, but with better transactions from NH.
The club signed 3 of the top 50 free agents this year – and in positions that matter significantly.
The young players are not just arriving – they are contributing. More are coming.
I’m pleased with the progress of the club. It’s significant improvement in play as compared to teams of the last two decades.
I think Hurdle was a big part of that, and I may not agree with his every move – but I respect the man to make his choices and in the end I think he gets where he wants to get to. I believe in that kind of manager, I believe in Hurdle.

He has had a short roster since he has been here. Its pretty standard to extend a manager in the final year of his contract unless your pretty sure he is a goner. I am glad Pittsburgh extended him.
