You have to remember who is running the league. Bud "Steroid Boy" Selig is more inept at his job than either Roger Goodell or Gary Bettman. There is no way in hell he will ever step in and force Nutting to open his books or sell the team, because he cares even less about the integrity of his sport than Goodell does. So long as people keep coming to the ballparks and the owners keep making money...and keep being a wallflower for the MLBPA...nothing is ever going to change.

Yeah, we'll see in 5 years when those "prospects" are traded to the Yankees, Mets, Dodgers and Red Sox.

Face it, even if these guys pan out and become good players/stars, Nutting is NOT going to spend the money to keep them here, no matter how many times he says it. He simply cannot be trusted. The only way the Pirates will ever be competitive again is when he is no longer the owner.
