Cherington on Pirates: scouting will drive success

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ben Cherington earned three World Series rings with the Boston Red Sox, the last as general manager of the 2013 club that raced from worst to first.

The challenge that lies ahead for Cherington with the Pittsburgh Pirates will be different.

The market is smaller. So are the resources Cherington can draw from. The chance to supplement the major league roster with expensive free agents - as Cherington did in Boston - likely will not exist. Yet the 45-year-old does not appear to be intimidated by the financial realities his new job presents. Two decades in the business have taught him that while budgets may vary, the tenets of successful teams do not.
