It can always be better, but so far, 2-2 on the road trip isn't bad. The Pirates win convincingly in SF last night, but that doesn't mean there weren't concerns. They only allowed 3 runs, but the pitching wasn't very efficient. Then again, some of that was due to horrible umpiring. Again. Isn't it time MLB seriously consider electronic balls and strikes?
The injury to Gregory Polanco has complicated the Pirates trade deadline strategy...presuming they have one. Where do they need the most help: Starting pitching, relief pitching, infield bat, outfield bat? And please spare me the "they won't do anything, they're too cheap" rant. We all get it. Let's pretend they want to do SOMETHING. Humor me. Kent Tekulve will be on board to talk all things Bucs at 12:30.
What do a lot of NFL wide receivers and many NBA players have in common? Divas. Why is that?
And with Steelers players having 48 hours of freedom left, we'll talk about training camp with Bob Labriola of Steelers.com and the Steelers Radio Network.
