PHILADELPHIA — Brief and to the Point …
>> My Monday column invites the Penguins to stay exactly where they are — Pittsburgh — and spare the franchise further embarrassment in Game 4.
Those are my thoughts in there, and I want to hear yours:
What’s the biggest problem?
What would you to do address the team before Game 4?
Was James Neal’s hit worthy of a suspension?
There’s no question Arron Asham is deserving. Don’t feel that way about Neal.
>> This was what Neal Huntington had to say to reporters Saturday in San Francisco in regards to Pedro Alvarez: “We’ve played … what, seven games so far? An awfully short sample. He’s working hard to get better, to take what he does in pregame into the game. We have to get about six other guys going — and Pedro is included in that — before we start talking about other situations.”
Really kind of running out of stuff to offer on this topic.
It’s all yours.
>> Also in the all-yours department: If anyone saw Pitt uber-recruit Steven Adams on TV the other night, would love to hear your impressions of that. Was traveling across that state as that went on.
>> Ben Roethlisberger, at the Yankees’ opener, opines on New York’s two (three?) quarterbacks.
Borderline related, but there are mounting descriptions of Roethlisberger as having slimmed down a bit. Not sure what to make of that, if wholly accurate. The Steelers clearly want him to do less scrambling.
>> My weekly appearance on TribLIVE Radio will be today at noon.
