Surprising fact though, did you all know that Robert Nutting was the tenth richest team owner in all of baseball? Honestly, I did not expect that. I always assumed that it was a situation like that Barden guy who bought the casino but really did not have any money to actually build the damn thing.

I did a google search actually expecting the opposite to put here, that the Nuttings were struggling and that we needed new ownership with the money that they could spend on the team, and was honestly completely surprised to find that Mr. Nutting is one of the richest owners in baseball. Am I the only one surprised to learn that?

10. Robert Nutting (Nutting Family)
Estimated net worth: $1.1 billion
Team: Pittsburgh Pirates

The 10th-richest owner is the chairman and principal owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Robert Nutting. According to Wealth-X, the net worth of Nutting and his family comes to $1.1 billion, with a majority ($630 million) arising from their ownership of Ogden Newspapers, which owns papers in 13 states, according to the company’s website. Other assets include an estimated $250 million stake in the Pirates, a $95 million stake in Pennsylvania’s Seven Springs Mountain Resort and approximately $130 million in liquid assets.
I didn't know it was that high, but I knew having the money to spend was never even close to an issue.
