CLINT HURDLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

News and notes: Hurdle, Scahill, Anna

Bucs notes from a somewhat busy Veterans Day: Clint Hurdle did not win the NL Manager of the Year award – he came in second to Washington’s Matt Williams. You could have probably guessed that Williams would win it after the first-year manger led the Nats to the league’s best record a year after they failed to make the playoffs. That’s just how these awards tend to work....

Clint Hurdle finishes second in Manager of the Year voting (and other Tuesday news)

I suppose that the biggest Pirate-related news on this Tuesday evening is that Clint Hurdle finished second in National League Manager of the Year voting to Matt Williams, and thusly will not be taking home his second consecutive Manger of the Year Award. I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again tonight: I think this is a stupid award, because its definition is basically...

First Pitch: Once Again, Clint Hurdle Should Be the Manager of the Year

For the second year in a row, Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has been named a finalist for the NL Manager of the Year award. Hurdle won the award last year. After he was named as a finalist, I wrote about how he deserved the award, due to the way he embraced advanced metrics such as defensive shifts, and how he controlled the clubhouse and never let the Pirates get into...

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle undergoes hip-replacement surgery

  Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle underwent successful surgery on Monday to replace his ailing right hip. The 57-year-old Hurdle spent most of the 2014 season dealing with arthritis in the hip, which made walking painful. He put off surgery until the completion of the season rather than disrupt the team in the middle of the year. Pittsburgh went 88-74 and earned a second...

John Holdzkom Quickly Earns Clint Hurdle’s Trust in the Late Innings

It’s no coincidence that Clint Hurdle has put tremendous faith in John Holdzkom after only pitching 27.2 innings in the Pirates’ minor leagues. Hurdle trusts the reports he gets from the Indianapolis Indians’ manager, Dean Treanor, and pitching coach, Tom Filer, and their word was enough for Hurdle to throw Holdzkom quickly into the mix. “Going in, I was looking for things...

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 […]

Clint Hurdle Finally Makes the Right Moves, Statistically Speaking

I’ve adamantly been against Clint Hurdle’s praise as the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates.  He doesn’t put his player’s in the situation to succeed.  He bunts when he shouldn’t.  He makes questionable bullpen decisions.  His lineup construction is questionable most of the time.  His gut decisions that worked against the trend last year have failed miserably in 2014...
