Pittsburgh Pirates Hire Clint Hurdle

By Adam Garnett

Scratch Clint Hurdle off the list to manage the Mets.’s Jon Heyman was the first to report this morning that Hurdle has been hired to manage the Pittsburgh Pirates, but word was circulating widely yesterday that Hurlde to the Bucs was almost a done deal.

Hurdle was likely the third choice for the Mets behind Terry Collins and Bob Melvin, but I was kind of warming to the idea of Hurdle being the man the past few days after studying his bio and reading about his personality and character. Oh well.
