Just about everyone (including me) agrees that Dave Littlefield was a dreadful GM. During DL's 6 years at the helm, the Pirates record was 421-549 (.434).
During Huntington's 4 years as the Pirates' GM, their record has been 258-389 (.399).
For Huntington's 6-year performance to EQUAL Littlefield's 6-year performance, the Pirates will need to go 163-160 over the next two seasons.
There appear to be only two possible outcomes:
1. The Pirates will break their seasonal losing streak in 2012 or 2013, or
2. Huntington's 6-year record as GM will be worse than Littlefield's.
