Hell frozen solid

DK on Neal Huntington and his next contract:

It says here that the Pirates will extend general manager Neal Huntington's contract, currently due to expire at season's end, and that they will do so sooner rather than later.

Want proof?

Listen to what team president Frank Coonelly told me this weekend at PNC Park when I raised the topic: "I'm very pleased with what Neal has done in building our organization from the ground up as well as the work that's been done by the staff he put together. My expectation is that Neal is going to be with the Pirates for many years to come."

All that's missing is the formal press release, right?

Well, here's something else it says here, and it might surprise some: I'm all for this.

Given the kind of front office Pirates fans know all too well, Dejan's affirmation of Neal Huntington is akin to affirming sunshine, a shade tree, a cool breeze and a six pack!
