The PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE reports U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge M. Bruce McCullough this week ruled that the Pirates’ ’79 World Series trophy "cannot be sold in the next 30 days, upholding part of an emergency motion filed by the Pirates."

The bankrupt Allegheny HYP Club was attempting to pawn the piece in an attempt to satisfy creditors.

No word if Lanny Frattare was a potential buyer, with the Buccos’ announcer planning to melt down the piece for another set of gold cuff links.

My advice to the Pirates: Have Omar Moreno steal it.
