The Steelers defense is a work in progress. The question is, are they making any progress? They've had MORE than enough time to rebuild it. Poor drafting at one of the key positions on this defense has held them back. I'll discuss that with both Tim Benz at 12:20, and Matt Williamson at 1:20.
The Penguins sign another center? It might be that Derek Grant is a different type of center. It leaves HCMS with options, but some of those options are bad!
In college basketball, they say that the last and first minutes of a half are crucial. The same might be true of a baseball season. The Pirates closed the 1st half as strongly as you can. How they begin now may determine where they end up this year...and for years to come. Post-Gazette beat writer Liz Bloom will discuss the subject at 1pm.
