$$$. $$$ $$$$$ $$$? $$$$$.

Social networking service Gather.com announced on Tuesday that Kevin McClatchy, CEO of the Pittsburgh Pirates major league baseball team and a director at The McClatchy Co., the third largest newspaper company in the U.S., has acquired a minority stake in the company.

Boston-based Gather.com said that the new investment funds by McClatchy will be used to expand its product development efforts and support its expansion plans.

Wow. I could have thought of one other place that money would have been appreciated.

    Aging wealthy gay men need social networking more than high-paid baseball players.

    McClatchy has no power in the Pirates organization.

    Do some research.

    Good lord, Chase, you have got to be the most negative reader I have.

    My point was that maybe McClatchy could have invested some of this here money right back into the Pirates.

    Get it?

    No. Because he’s a minority owner.
