I’m excited seeing that the Pirates organization has cleaned house. This brings a good amount of credibility to their plans of fielding a winning team. I’m anticipating something good.

Will you be offering up any additional info on the coaching staff? i.e. Bios, experience, etc………

Also, are any of the coaches from last season gone or being kept in any capacity for the Pirates?

Will Clint Hurdle be having any kind of press conference to announce these coaching staff changes? If so, when?
