CLINT HURDLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Clint Hurdle throws up hands in frustration, starts Pedro Alvarez at first base

Ike Davis has not been a particularly great acquisition for the Pirates this year. I guess he’s provided the Pirates some Garrett-Jones-level production for slightly less money than Garrett Jones would’ve cost, but Garrett-Jones-level production these days is about replacement level, which is squarely where Davis sits in his few months with the Pirates. You don’t trade potentially...

MLB Moves and Notes - August 13th - feat. Walker, Scheppers, Cole, Doubront

Another day, another grand slam for a major leaguer on rehab. Read on to find out who got it this time. TransactionsChicago White Sox: activated RHP Matt Lindstrom. The reliever has been out since the end of May with an ankle tendon injury which required surgery.

Alvarez buys into Bucs' plan to use him at first

Early Friday afternoon, Clint Hurdle had one of the hardest conversations of his managerial career with a player: He had to ask 2013 National League All-Star third baseman Pedro Alvarez to buy into trying a new position that could free him from his throwing yips. "I'm well aware of the fact I signed up for 'hard.' I always balance the importance of the one with...

The Pedro Alvarez Problem Solved

Clint Hurdle has had a lot of tough decisions to make this season from injuries and inconsistent starting pitching to playing solely the hand he’s been dealt. Hurdle gave Josh Harrison a chance to play third base and it seems as if he’s now the starter at the hot corner. Pedro Alvarez, the NL Silver […]

From #Hurdled to Manager of the Year

Clint Hurdle won the BBWAA NL Manager of the Year award on Tuesday night, as expected. He dominated the voting, earning 25 of the 30 first place votes (and the 5 voters that didn’t put him first for some strange reason voted him second). I summarized my thought’s on Hurdle’s accomplishment when he was awarded the Sporting News Manager of the Year award two weeks ago, but I...

News and notes: Clint Hurdle, Manager of the Year

The Pirates took home a Sporting News award for the second straight day: Clint Hurdle was named NL Manager of the Year on Tuesday. This shouldn’t surprise anybody – the consensus choice for manager of the year is usually the manager of the team that surpasses preseason expectations (or “overachieves” based on their percieved talent level) the most – and that was certainly...

First Pitch: Clint Hurdle Deserves to be the Manager of the Year

Clint Hurdle didn’t completely go by the book this year. (Photo Credit: David Hague) My feelings on managers have been made known on this site: I think that a good manager is usually the result of a good team. A bad manager is usually the result of a bad team. I think that managers can do things to help or hurt the current team, but that their impact is overblown. Major League...

Pirates agree to extension with Clint Hurdle

#Pirates will extend Hurdle thru 2014 with option for 2015 — Rob Biertempfel (@BiertempfelTrib) February 18, 2013   I don’t think there are too many fans out there who really care for Clint Hurdle all that much, at least not fans who read this site, but it’s hard to argue against this move. The Pirates have actually been playoff contenders pretty deep into both seasons Hurdle...

Pirates extend Clint Hurdle’s contract

The Pirates are giving manager Clint Hurdle a one year extension (plus an option for 2015), according to the Trib’s Rob Biertempfel. Hurdle’s original deal was set to expire after the upcoming season. Hurdle’s tactics constantly drive us nuts and he certainly shares some of the blame for the team’s second-half collapse in both of his seasons as the skipper, but his popularity...
