Flash Forward to November 2014


The Pirates have just won the World Series over the Yankees in 4 games. McCutchen is the MVP hitting .375, 3HRs, and 10 runs scored. Plus 8 SBs.

The buzz around baseball is not which Pirates will be become Free Agents 'cause all key players are signed for the next 2 years. For those players not signed, the Bucs have AAA players or reserves who are both young and talented who can step right in.

The team is making money hand over fist with sellout crowds. Home attendance records have been smashed!

NH gets an offer to go to another club; the Nationals as GM and President. What does Nutting do? Does he pay whatever he has to keep Neil or does he let him go?

You see to me, the real question when the Bucs become good again, will not what players we keep but if we can keep the man who made it happen. Will we pay to keep HIM?
