5 managers in 11 years? Seriously now.
Exactly...and they've gone through a few general managers. Until Nutting gets fired, the Pirates will suck.
The new GM and manager won't make a difference. Developing talent in-house isn't going to happen--look at the record of the Pirates farm system. How many major league players of note came up through the Bucs organization? How many big time prospects fizzled?? Something's wrong with the organizaiton from top to bottom.
