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...

It Only Takes One Pitch

Even if Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle would have started Gerrit Cole in Wednesday night’s elimination wild card contest, it may not have mattered. Then again, we probably wouldn’t be sitting here looking back on the one particular pitch that turned the game on its head. On Sunday to close out the season, Hurdle went with his best starter, Cole, in an attempt to put...

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...
