And Another Thing


The baseball gods are laughing at Clint Hurdle

Or so I've concluded upon hearing that Hurdle apparently will be the new manager of the Farm Team To The Stars, aka the Pittsburgh Pirates.

My first reaction is I don't get why Hurdle, the hitting instructor for the Texas Rangers, would leave a well-paying major-league job to go back to the minors again.

My second reaction is that the baseball gods are some cruel (bleeps).

Clint Hurdle? What'd he ever do to you?
