Pirates Manager Russell Booted

After posting a 188-299 (.386) record over the past three years, Pittsburgh Pirates Manager John Russell was fired today.

General Manager Neal Huntington announced the news, adding that the Pirates are already looking for a replacement.

"He put his heart and soul into this difficult challenge and was tremendously committed to the organization and the plan we implemented three years ago," said Huntington in a written statement. "But, in the end, we decided that new leadership in the clubhouse would give us the best opportunity to move this major league team forward."
