A Little Movement?

Ken Rosenthal and Tracy Ringolsby of Fox Sports report that "The Pirates, sources said, have made a strong push within the past 48 hours to ensure that (Clint) Hurdle will be their next manager.

'It's moving forward at a rapid pace,' one source said."

They add that the Mets don't intend to change their timetable for selecting a manager, so Hurdle may take the sure thing in Pittsburgh rather than await the Mets' down-the-road decision.

It seems the major hang-up is the contract length; Neal Huntington has a year to go on his contract, and that may cause the Bucs second thoughts about extending Hurdle's deal longer than Huntington's, write Rosenthal and Ringolsby.
