Pirates To Hire Neal Huntington

The Pirates will name Neal Huntington as their new General Manager Tuesday, according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Huntington's expertise is focused in on scouting, but his background didn't doubt anyone in the Pirates Front Office. For three years, Huntington worked in the Player Development department for the Expos. Following that, he joined the Indians where he worked in Player Development, Scouting, and Special Assistant to the General Manager where he was until today. With the youth the Pirates have up and down their system, it makes sense they would hire Huntington, a smart guy who has an eye for young talent. Personally, I'm surprised Ruben Amaro Jr. or Chris Antonetti weren't named but new, young, and smart isn't always bad with a young, struggling team.
