  • Pirates GM offers insight into Shapiro's front office - Sportsnet.ca
    year because it didn t work and we did make some changes my very first year The process we now have in place in Pittsburgh we should never surprise an employee that we re letting go we should do everything we can to help them grow to develop and if we re unsuccessful then we let the employee go but that s on us Through some challenging discussions and conversations Mark allowed me to make some changes my first year but from that point forward we had to make sure we were doing everything we could to help our employees grow and get better Still Shapiro didn t force Huntington to keep things static either I was a first time farm director inheriting his system and he was passionate about it it was a great system and he let a first time farm director make some adjustments that as I look back on it as long as my thought process was sound he encouraged me to move forward says Huntington If I wasn t sound in my thought process he would challenge me he would push back and I didn t recognize it at the time but as I look back on it as long as I had logical rational reasons for what I wanted to do he supported it Huntington was promoted to assistant general manager when Shapiro took over from Hart following the 2001 season concentrating on player evaluation and acquisition In September 2007 he was hired as GM of the Pirates a position LaCava who spent 2002 with the Indians as a national crosschecker was a finalist for With John Hart and Mark Shapiro those are two of the better developers of executives that exist in the game today says Huntington I count my blessings every day that I was able to work in a very small market in Montreal with Dan Duquette and learn some things that were way ahead of the curve then and then to have the opportunity to go to Cleveland and have a variety of roles with Mark and to learn from him and to learn from John and to watch those guys help people grow help an organization grow and then regrow as we had to tear it down We were an aging veteran club the revenue streams shrunk and we had to turn it over Mark took personal and professional hits as we were turning over and he stayed the course because he trusted his people he trusted what we were doing he trusted why were doing it Short of being able to close out a series in 2007 when the Indians lost the ALCS to Boston despite a 3 1 lead it would have been an absolutely remarkable turnaround 2Fbaseball 2Fmlb 2Fpirates gm offers insight into shapiros front office 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS Cubs Bryant unanimously wins NL Rookie of the Year 4 minutes ago Mariners acquire OF Martin from Rangers for Wilhelmsen 20 minutes ago Bases
