Pirates fans urge MLB to force owner Nutting to sell

Pirates fans urge MLB to force owner Nutting to sell”

The hard-throwing left-handed reliever finalized a $22 million, four-year contract on Thursday, a deal that includes two club options and could be worth $41 million over six seasons.

As reported back on Monday, the Pittsburgh Pirates and closer Felipe Rivero agreed to a four-year contract with club options for the 2022-23 seasons. "Felipe quickly established himself as one of the best young relief pitchers in Major League Baseball last season and we look forward to working with him to help us win games for potentially the next six seasons". It's a good breaking ball.

Gonzalez was left off the Dodgers' post-season roster, traded to Atlanta in December and released, leaving the Braves responsible for his $21.5 million salary in the final season of a $154 million, seven-year contract he signed with Boston. Most of his time in the Mets lineup has been attributed to the team's inability to stay healthy as Yoenis Cespedes, Michael Conforto and Juan Lagares all went down with injuries.

As baseball matters go, it's easy to believe two-time Gold Glove winner Starling Marte can move to center field like last year and the No. 3 spot in the batting order like he did two seasons ago. The Kansas City front office, like that of the Pirates, has made difficult choices inherent for a team inhabiting a small market, and the reaction has been tempered.

Hypothetically speaking, if the Mets were to acquire Harrison, Asdrubal Cabrera would likely be the team's starting third baseman after he was forced from his normal position at shortstop when the team called up top prospect Amed Rosario in August.

Bruce influenced by 'slow' market: Jay Bruce was surprised by the free-agent market.

"Pittsburgh is a baseball town that is being destroyed by a greedy owner", the petition states.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Pirates fans are not thrilled about the team's direction. Similarly, some rival evaluators view the return Pittsburgh got from Houston for Cole as mediocre, a collection of decent young players who probably can't significantly boost the Pirates' playoff chances but might be serviceable big leaguers immediately.

Pirates fans have persistently complained that Nutting was not willing to spend enough money to keep the Pirates competitive. Rivero took over as Pittsburgh's closer last May, going 5-3 with a 1.67 ERA and 21 saves with 88 strikeouts in 75 1/3 innings for the Pirates.

If there had been a championship parade, he would have been stationed in the first float, as the player everyone would have wanted to see, as the player targeted for the most confetti. There are so many loyal fans who truly care and support this team through thick and thin.
