Three Thoughts On The Pirates:
- Bastardo has got to go
If I hit the Lotto, my first act of charity would to be give whatever is left of Antonio Bastardo’s $6.25-million salary to the Pirates with instructions to release him.
OK, it might not seem like a very charitable move to give money to billionaire owner Bob Nutting, who doesn’t spend enough of what he already has. However, it would do all Pirates’ fans — as well as the media who cover the team — a tremendous service.
