U.L.’s Toothpick: The Year of The Card–Clint Hurdle, 1980

We know lots about baseball these days. Everything in the game, it seems, is tracked and recorded, and then a bunch of smart fans figure out ways to distill that data into stats that can tell us more about the game than we might have ever imagined. Even if you don’t understand those stats (although I am inclined to pay attention to advanced stats, there are plenty that I struggle...

Weekend news: Taillon, Huntington, Hurdle

The exciting series win over St. Louis wasn’t the only news coming from PNC Park this weekend, as the Pirates announced two contract extensions and a devastating injury. Actually, I probably shouldn’t say devastating, but it really stinks to hear that Jameson Taillon will need Tommy John surgery. That’ll sideline him for over a year, and it wipes out the plan of having him...

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...
