Ron Wotus


A darkhouse candidate may have emerged for this lackluster mangerial search. Believe it or not he is a former Pirate with ties to Western Pennsylvania.

Some interesting tidbits I found.

Wotus has spent the last 22 years with the Giants, the last 12 coming on the Major League staff. He also managed for seven seasons in the Minors, with his clubs finishing above .500 in all but one season.

He expressed his desire to be a Major League manager and cited Pittsburgh as a place he would love to return to. As of our latest conversation, Wotus had not yet received a call from anyone in the Pirates' front office, but he said he would jump at the opportunity to interview if given a chance.

It appears that Wotus is a solid candidate for what this young nucleus needs.
