Pirates president looks to ‘crack the code,’ build a winner

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The new president of the Pittsburgh Pirates is confident owner Bob Nutting is committed to winning.

Travis Williams, who succeeds Frank Coonelly on Nov. 1, says his job is to put the right people in place to help the Pirates climb back into contention. His first order of business will be finding a general manager after the team dismissed Neal Huntington.

Williams’ relationship with Nutting began more than a decade ago, when he was the team’s outside legal counsel.

“I pay attention to what the commitment and the passion is,” Williams said.

Not in baseball- they’re planning to fix the Pennsylvania Lottery again.

I keep wondering how likely it is that the best person for the job is a guy who was outside counsel to the team ten years ago.

This sort of thing annoys me. There's no "code" to "crack". In any business. There's no brilliant strategy you're going to come up with that insures perpetual success.

To succeed you have to grind it out, month after month, year after year, getting a little bit better at 50 different aspects of your business.

Methinks that PNC Park could use a monorail.
