Nuttings may lift finger

John Perrotto has rumors, and this is the big one:

A source close to the Nutting family indicates that Pirates ownership is losing patience with General Manager Dave Littlefield and may fire him at the end of the season, even though they extended his contract one year through the 2008 season on opening day. If Littlefield is let go, his waterloo will have been acquiring $18.5-million worth of declining veterans in Sean Casey, Joe Randa and Jeromy Burnitz last winter and getting little production in return.

The trade for Shawn Chacon, as Perrotto notes here, was more stupid than each of those signings.
