Some good managers will take jobs for reasons other than money... or desperation.

Have to root for a man who makes that kind of decision. I've always like the Pirates anyway so I hope they do well.

Me too. I've been to two games in Pittsburgh and have really enjoyed it. If the Reds were in a down year and the Pirates were doing well, I would probably pull for them.

The Steelers on the other hand.....

Pirates are definitely my second favorite club in the division; in fact in the NL. Goes all the way back to Clemente. Agree 100%, however, on the Steelers. Got no use for them.

Hurdle did a great thing for his family. You have to respect a man like that. I've always liked the Pirates too. Willie Stargell is probably my favorite non-Red player of all time. I hope Hurdle does well in his tenure in Pittsburgh.
