Once the trade deadline passed last week, Ben Cherington used an interesting term in talking about what he wanted to see from the Pittsburgh Pirates for the remainder of the season.
The general manager said he is looking for “urgent improvement” from a team in danger of finishing in last place in the National League Central for a fourth consecutive season.
Urgent improvement can be interpreted in different ways. That prompts the question of what exactly Cherington means?
Cherington expanded on the comment last Sunday during his weekly radio show on 93.7 The Fan.
