Russell Will Manage The Pirates Next Year

Pirates President Frank Coonelly told Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that manager John Russell will return next year. Russell, who is already under contract for 2010, has led the Pirates to a 113-165 record in his two seasons as team manager. GM Neal Huntington, who is also under contract through next season, has traded away most of the team's veteran talent, so Russell has worked with a constantly-changing group.
