The Pirates extend Clint Hurdle’s contract through 2014

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Pirates have signed manager Clint Hurdle to a one-year extension with an option for the 2015 season.

Hurdle is is 151-173 in two seasons with the Pirates, but he has increased the win total each year, even if the past two seasons have been characterized by first half promise and second half collapses.  It’s hard to argue, though, that his teams have underperformed their talent level.
