He sold his final shares. Mixed feelings really. He kept the team here which I initially doubted and he got PNC Park built. But that's about the good.

He should have gone into commercial real estate, not baseball.

I'll give him props for keeping the team in Pittsburgh and PNC Park, but besides that he didn't do anything...95% of the decisions he made weren't good at all...

Any idea who bought them or are they still up for sale?

They can't still be up for sale. Otherwise McClatchy would still own them.

I bought them. A guy with a thin moustache sold them to me late last night in a bar.

True, I'd just like to know who they were sold too or if the other 4 on the board bought them...

Well that was my first thought, but after a couple of drinks he seemed sincere.
