Win or sell, Mr. Nutting

The 2013 baseball season is coming soon and weary Pirates fans cannot be blamed for feeling less than optimistic. Beautiful PNC Park is well into its second decade, and where, oh where is that return to the golden days of yore we were led to expect?

The park was built with public funds and has been very well supported at the gate, only to yet see a significant return on the field. The team did play some meaningful baseball recently but failed badly at the end. Could that next level finally be in sight?

Mr. Nutting, I think it is time for you, as the owner, to look into your own accountability, as you have stated to your staff and players. If you can't at long last turn this thing around, I think it is time to turn the keys over to somebody who can.

You say the team is not for sale. We say we are tired of being exploited for your own personal gain. To borrow a line from a local commercial: “Haven't we waited long enough?”
