Robert Nutting, local Republican propagandist and owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, is doing his part to kill any Pittsburgh-area love for baseball. Last night’s score:

In case you’re wondering which party wealthy sports owners politically support, last October, ESPN and FiveThirtyEight tracked their political contributions here:
Election 2020: Inside the political donation history of wealthy sports owners
(Spoiler alert -- the owners overwhelmingly support Republicans.)
Additionally, Esquire's Jack Holmes has an excellent analysis of what Republicans expect from Fortune 500 CEOs and sports owners here:
Republicans Are Now Running the 'Stick-to-Sports' Routine on Fortune 500 CEOs
*Good news: the Pirates are improving -- they only lost 11-4 today.
