DL on hot seat

The Trib's Rob Biertempfel asks some outsider experts to rate Dave Littlefield. Their objective opinions? DL is not good and is on the hot seat:

"Frankly, the general perception around baseball is, 'Why isn't he already gone?' " said Kevin Goldstein, national writer for Baseball Prospectus. "There seems to be no sense of direction there. The record speaks for itself -- the Pirates are not good now, and they never were good while he's been there."
Baseball America's Jim Callis:
"The farm system's certainly not any stronger. After five years, you'd think you'd see more progress. Dave Littlefield has got to be on the hot seat."
