Coonelly ... Olney offers some (encouraging) insight

From today's ESPN blog:

But that work may have hidden some of Coonelly's other talents, some peers say. Some say that now he will be allowed to function with some autonomy, his understanding of baseball and how to run an organization will bear themselves out in a way that were never apparent before, because of his role as advocate. Instead of providing rationale for Selig's moves, Coonelly will now map out his own course; he will be The Boss, this time around.

"He is going to be for the Pirates what Sandy Alderson was for the A's, I'd bet," said one official. "He's that good at what he does."
