Another front office hire

The Pirates announced today (or yesterday, or somewhere in there) the hiring of Larry Corrigan as another special assistant to Huntington. I like this hire much more than the Tanner hire, to be honest. He's been in Minnesota's system for a very long time and most recently worked as a special assistant to Terry Ryan. Since the Twins are one of the teams I hope the Pirates are modeling themselves after, it's hard not to like this news. He was the Twins scouting director for two years in the early 90s and worked with Russell when he was the minor league field coordinator (whatever that is) in the mid-90s. According to the same article, he's already at work helping John Russell fill out his coaching staff.
