OK, Clint Hurdle is on the way to parlay, Jeff Banister is on the back burner, and Tony Pena is apparently not on the dance card. Big deal.
This team isn't going to leapfrog the rest of the division because of the managing. It needs some players, particularly those that can throw the ball. So don't get too involved in this searching for Waldo game (heck, it doesn't even look like the FO is that into it) and instead keep your eye on the signings, the 40-man roster changes, and the call-ups through April.
Then you'll have a clue what the 2011 Pirates - and beyond - are on their way to becoming. All the manager provides is the cherry on top.
