Okay, so we knew it was coming—but now it’s really happening. The Post-Gazette’s Dejan Kovacevic says that the Pirates have called a press conference (set for 3:30 p.m.) to announce the firing of Jim Tracy.
Any details will come later; for now, go back to reading Dave’s article on the Pirates who could, should and will be traded this off-season.
The Pirates also dismissed senior director of player development Brian Graham, senior director of scouting Ed Creech and director of baseball operations Jon Mercurio.
Doug Strange, formerly assistant GM, will now serve the club as a special assistant to Huntington.
