Some one started a change.org petition to force Bob Nutting to sell the Pirates. I think these kind of petitions are stupid. But it would be hilarious if this thing got more signatures than Pirates attendance.

They are stupid, but I signed it- why the hell not?

BTW, in the 2 minutes it took me to sign it, it got 4,000 more signatures- up close to 20,000 already.

Nutting is the Mike Brown of MLB. You can 't embarrass him into selling the team. It is there to make money for him. When I lived in Cincinnati, there were Mike Brown urinal cakes for sale and they were quite popular. Mike Brown did not and will not sell his money making deal and neither will Nutting.

I think this is an excellent comparison , but at least Mike Brown operates in a league that has much more competitive balance and controls so I look at him and guys like Jimmy Haslam as even bigger disappointments than the Nut and that’s hard to achieve.

I signed it WHy the hell not? I'm also joining the boycott. I'm not attending anymore games or watching them unless it's on a black market site. I'll try to avoid Pirate sponsors also.

SI.com is sure doing their part to embarrass him. This is top headline for almost 48 hours on the MLB section.

cbssports.com and many others are picking up the story on the petition

from Gerrit Cole:

"It's refreshing to come to an environment where the team is willing to continually put resources into the club and continue to move forward and try to provide the best possible product for its fans."

If MLB had any balls, they’d force a sale somehow.

Nutting is giving them a black eye.
