Doubles in triplicate. Nice. And then a pop-up bunt...ugh.

As for Nutting's business holdings...he owns a whole bunch of nothing and runs them horrifically. No one can doubt he's been using the Pirates as a way to balance the books for his other miserable holdings. Even the one semi-attractive thing he owns, Seven Springs, has been bleeding money horribly ever since he got control of it.

The thing that's more concerning about him using the team as his piggy bank is that he's in a position to do so. It just goes to show how bad of a position Kevin McClatchy was in that he could be bought out by a family who's business holdings haven't been relevant in the real world for a good 60 years. The market for small-town newspapers has been non-existent for a long time now.

edit: **** off, McKenry. That is literally the one thing you can't do in that situation.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
