It had been rumoured but the Pirates hired the Jays' VP of Baseball Ops Ben Cherington as their new GM.

You never want to hold people back from advancing their careers but this is a blow to the organization.

Sure but I think that given Cherington's resume it would have been safe to assume he was going to be a GM hire at some point so I have to assume he was seen as a temporary employee regardless.

Oh no doubt but it’s a big loss to the scouting/drafting for the team. 

The Empire:
The starting rotation will most likely be some combination of :

Roark/Tehran/Shoemaker
Chase Andersen
Thornton
Kay
Zeuch
Waguespack

This is not promising. 

Atkins won't have a chance at any of the big arms Stras, Cole, Wheeler so he'll have to settle for the 2nd or 3rd tier pitchers.  A better way to shore up the rotation is via trade.

I'd like them to take a shot at Calhoun.  He can play all 3 outfield positions and he can be had for round $7MM.
