Interview with Frank Coonelly – Follow-up from Piratefest

At last month's Piratefest, Pirates Prospects and some of the other leading Pirate blogs, were able to have a backstage joint interview with Paul Maholm, Neal Huntington, and Frank Coonelly. It was a great event, but I was left with a ton of questions still on my page and felt that some answers needed more detail.

That, in itself, is a testament to why Neal Huntington chose him to lead this team.

Responding to Mondesi’s House

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington was on The Fan morning show on Tuesday, discussing Monday night’s draft signing deadline. He talked about Jameson Taillon, Stetson Allie, a few 2009 draftees and some issues involving the major league team. For some reason, he made people angry.

What was Neal Huntington thinking when he acquired Eveland?

Dana EvelandWith today’s DFA of Dana Eveland, a trade that appeared suspect at the time now looks even worse. Essentially, the Pirates traded Ronald Uviedo for three non-descript appearances by Eveland. It seems like they simply threw away a minor asset.
