The Future with Nutting

Along with everyone else here i would have loved to see Nutting sell the Pirates but today and the previous drafts make it clear he is not going to sell the team.  Given that we have spent the most money on the past three years drafts there is no way Nutting is going to sell the team in the near future.  It makes no sense for him to (right now) considering the franchises value is going to increase drastically within the next few years because we will be able to put out a competitive club starting next season.  Now that we have signed Taillon and Allie and hopefully Heredia I think he is making it clear he is here to stay.  I know Nutting has not invested any money into the Pirates I really believe he is going to make an effort into turning the Pirates into the contenders they once were.  I only say that because he has pored a lot of his money or revenues into Seven Springs.  Since all the money he has recently spent on the draft it makes me believe he is going to keep the talent we have at the major league level.  I also think it is genius for the Pirates to be giving high school players over slot money now before there is strict draft slotting roles when every team will most likely be spending the same kind of money on the draft.  I also think we spent less money on Taillon and Allie than we thought we were going to so i hope that makes it easier to give Heredia some extra money if we need to.  I just really hope Nutting doesnt stab all of us in the back and lets all of our young talent go once they reach there arbitration years or the year after that.  I know once the Pirates put out a winning team PNC Park will be packed all the time.  This will allow us to keep our talented players.  I just hope everyone else is as excited as I am and wanna here your thoughts
