Correct. The headline in the Trib praises his versatility, so I'm guessing he backfills at 3b a bit. But in recent years he has been exclusively an OF.

I think Molina has been the MVP of the past decade or so and with him heading into the last years of his career I think they realize the stability of their pitching staff isnít going to be there down the line.

Pirate killer Billy Hamilton signed with KC.  Not sure how well that will work since his career has been made off torturing the Pirates.

They also appear to have a deal with FA right handed relief pitcher Jordan Lyles, who split time with SD and Milwaukee for their stretch run.

Nova traded for 19 yr old pitcher who was in the Dominican Summer League last year and 500k cash in international signing money, plus, of course 8.5M less Nutting has to spend on payroll next year.

I hope the payroll is slashed to $50mil just to spite the Nutting haters.

If Nutting could get away with that, he would, but the MLB minimum salary is getting close to 1M making a 50M payroll unlikely, though not impossible.

Bob Nutting runs the Pirates unlike any other owner/ownership group in MLB. He treats, and will always treat, the Pirates as a profit-generating machine for himself and his family. His plan is to pass ownership along to his daughters. He will always make sure that a healthy profit is calculated from, then subtracted from expected revenues before anything else.
