Clint Hurdle is being hired by the Pittsburgh Pirates as manager before the Mets' process goes any further, SI.com reported. That further solidifies ESPNNewYork.com's Saturday story about Terry Collins emerging as the frontrunner for the Mets gig. Sources indicate Bob Melvin is the primary alternative for the Mets job.

Just a hunch, but perhaps Melvin ends up as bench coach and Dave Jauss ends up in Collins' old role as minor league field coordinator, a position he has held with the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles. It's also conceivable Tim Teufel ends up as first base coach, with Chip Hale remaining at third base and Dan Warthen as pitching coach.
