Baseball's playoffs no longer are an exclusive club of high rollers.
Clint Hurdle is going to get a chance to finish a turnaround he's started with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Pittsburgh Pirates and All-Star centerfielder Andrew McCutchen agreed on Tuesday to a six-year, $51.5 million deal.
Andrew Neft stood with his family in the Black and Gold Forever store in the heart of Pittsburgh's Strip District _ looking to see what Steelers jersey or Penguins gear he might add to his collection _ when he spotted six Pirates shirts hanging high up on the wall, nearly out of view.
The Pittsburgh Pirates thought they were interviewing Clint Hurdle. Turns out he was interviewing them as well.
Jose Bautista doesn't know if the Pirates didn't have the money to spend or simply didn't want to spend the money they had.
The Pittsburgh Pirates aren't winners on the field, but they're apparently no longer losers to the banks.
"I think that the playing field is not level, never will be. But we as the Pittsburgh Pirates have committed ourselves to never using that as an excuse," controlling owner Bob Nutting said just before the team's first postseason appearance since 1992. "Is it easier to build a great club with $200 million than with $75-$80 million? Absolutely. But I believe, have always believed and will continue to believe, that we can be competitive at that level. We need to make different decisions. We need to make smart decisions."
"This is a natural step in the process as we go forward," Nutting said. "We've focused on (updating) facilities, we've focused on the draft, we've focused on bringing talent into the organization. I believe we've followed through on that."
