The More Things Stay the Same, the More They Change

A little under a year ago, things weren’t exactly looking up for Neal Huntington and the Pirates’ front office. The team had improved significantly over the previous two years, but had just suffered its second straight late-season collapse. A lot of fans – including me – thought the team should find a new GM.
