Don't live in Pittsburgh, but I can already see more people going through the turnstiles because of hope restored because of a man named Lemieux behind it.
Pittsburgh fans trust Mario.
I wonder how much longer it would take if the MLB could do such a thing? I mean what 16 losing seasons and no hope in sight.
I live in Pittsburgh myself and believe me with the love for Lemieux, him taking control of the Bucs would be the BEST move out there. We have full trust in him and know instead of making an easy profit he will make the right moves to turn this team into the right direction.
This is exciting I just hope it goes through and negotions continue because Nutting is the biggest piece of scum and this city misses a championship caliber baseball team!
