Pirates name new manager

And it's John Russell. Who is John Russell? That's a good question. In my first judgment, he has 3 big strikes against him: 1) Nobody knows who he is; 2) He was the Pirates 3rd base coach from 2003-2005, which means he's already been tainted (and been a protege of the Lloyd McClendon era); 3) his prior managing experience? Last year with the 2007 AAA Ottawa Lynx. Final record for the Lynx? 55-88. Great.
