Weighing in on the Bucs Firing Kerrigan, Varsho

Whadda we know?

Really, what does anyone (outside the Pirates inner circle) know about the Buccos' abrupt firing of pitching coach Joe Kerrigan and Gary Varsho?

How could we know? The Pirates are about as forthcoming with "truth" as Pravda was during the Kremlin era (for you kids out there, Pravda, the Kremlin, ah, forget it).

For all we know, Kerrigan and Varsho might have been fired last October.

Rampant speculation has it that manager John Russell and the two fired coaches had "a personality clash."

Really, who knew?

Who knew John Russell had a personality?
