PITTSBURGH (93.7 The FAN) - It was a rough offseason for Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington in terms of public perception.

The Starkey and Mueller Show took some time now though to evaluate the job Huntington did navigating a tricky offseason and putting together a team that today, on May 17th, is in first place in the NL Central.

"With Neal Huntington, I think you really get a true, both sides kind of argument going...you say something good about Neal Huntington, somebody chimes in with "Oh no, he's not that good!" Chris said.

"I've been torn on Neal Huntington a lot," Starkey admitted.  "Mostly a supporter, but at times, my enthusiasm for what he does has waned in a big way.  Overall though, I'm adamant that he has done more good than harm and that he's a pretty good GM."

The guys also talked about Huntington's stregnths and weaknesses, how he has done in the draft, how they'd grade his trades of the higher end talent the organization has had and what they make of the job he did with this years team.
