Neal Huntington Implies John Russell's Future In Jeopardy

In a series of tweets by FOX Sports' Jim Bowden relayed over at MLB Trade Rumors, it sounds like Pirates GM Neal Huntington is thinking about getting rid of manager John Russell after the season. Huntington refers to Russell's status as "the million-dollar question" in one, which certainly isn't a vote of confidence. If Huntington and team president Frank Coonelly are going to fire Russell, they'll probably do it in a few days, shortly after the end of the season.

Bucs Dugout user David Todd has a good argument against Russell here.
