Poll: Pirates Extension Of Neal Huntington

This morning, the Pirates announced that they extended GM Neal Huntington's contract through 2014 with a club option for 2015.  In his four years on the job, the Bucs' farm system has gotten an infusion of talent and the club has shown that they are willing to spend on the draft.  Most recently, the Pirates gave sizeable deals right-hander Gerrit Cole and outfielder Josh Bell.  Pittsburgh also saw success on the major league level as they briefly sat atop the NL Central in late July before a slide in August.

While it appears that the club is headed in the right direction, the Pirates' record in three full seasons under Huntington's watch has been 186-299.  Unless they practically run the table to close out the season, this year will mark the team's 19th consecutive losing campaign. 

All things considered, do you agree with the Pirates three-year extension of Huntington's contract?
