    I don't think he was the best manager, but I also don't see him as being the biggest problem. It's almost ridiculous to give the guy an extension and then can him less than a year later.

    Peter Mackanin, Jr. (born August 1, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois) is a former Major League Baseball player and current coach.

    Mackanin was drafted by the Washington Senators in the 1969 Major League Baseball Draft and made his debut with them in 1973, after they'd moved and become the Texas Rangers. In a 9-year career, he also played for the Montréal Expos, Philadelphia Phillies, and Minnesota Twins. In 548 games, he had a batting average of .226, 355 hits, 30 home runs, and 141 RBI.

    After retiring as a player, Mackanin spent many years managing and coaching in the minor leagues. He became the Expos' Third Base Coach in 1997 and spent four years in that position. After returning to minor league managing for two years, he became Bench Coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates for the 2003 season. He served as interim Manager of the Pirates for the last month of the 2005 season, leading the team to a 12-14 record. He is currently the Advance Scout for the Cincinnati Reds.

    He is a graduate of Brother Rice High School in Chicago.

    lost season already. A move to appease the masses and possibly for WK to deflect attention and maybe save his own job.

    It's good.

    Good for our pitcher's arms. Good for team morale. Good for fans who need a head to roll to restore some sense of "hope".

    Mackannin managed down here (i'm in Venezuela currently) in the winter leagues and IIRC won a title or two.

    Who is Petey Mac? The guy in Louisville?

    Whither Bucky Dent?
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    He is an advance scout for the Reds. I wonder who else is leaving with Narron.

    Good move going with a scout and not a coaching staff member

    Mac took over the Pirates after Lloyd got the axe I believe.

    I sense a pattern.

    I would say it is an indication all of the coaches better be updating their resumes. Pete would definately seem to be a true interim manager.
