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.
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.
