    Wonder if this means the CEO and GM search for the Pirates are closer than farther from completion?

    I think Matt Morris' first paycheck just hit the Nutter's accounting department. :D

    That organization won't be successful until Nutting is out. There are so many changes that need to be made, and I'm sure Jim Tracy isn't far behind Littlefield.

    Great move ... and about four years overdue.

    The reader comments are hilarious.

    Especially this one...

    It gives me hope that Bob Nutting is going to be the owner the Pirates need. -- John Lease, Clifton, Va.

    I dig Alan Robinson's frustration and snarkiness here. How many bad Pirates losses has that guy seen?

    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- General manager Dave Littlefield was fired Friday by the Pittsburgh Pirates after six-plus seasons in which the team showed little progress on the field or in its farm system.

    Director of player development Brian Graham will serve as the interim general manager until Littlefield's replacement is found.

    The firing came with three weeks left in the season and the Pirates in their customary spot in last place in the NL Central, with a 61-79 record -- three losses away from a 15th consecutive losing season, one off the major league record.

    You don't want Cuban here, it's not worth the sideshow.

    But that sideshow could maybe accompany a winner, like it did with the Mavs.
