LAS VEGAS — Brief and to the Point …
>> The Wednesday column addresses the laughable suggestions some have been making about trading Evgeni Malkin.
I’d love it if you guys took a crack at that challenge I issue in that final sentence.
>> You’ll also find on the column file a video of a couple questions I asked 71, who generally appeared relaxed, comfortable and almost having fun in doing the interview at a semi-podium. Kind of surprised me.
>> Don’t know if Ray Shero can put it any more bluntly: He isn’t trading Jordan Staal.
>> The Pirates in Morgantown? Maybe.
>> The Pirates in first place again? Not yet, but maybe.
Just 2 1/2 back, and this so soon after their season was sent into an irreversible, inevitable tailspin last week in Baltimore.
Sorry for the brevity. Really long day that started three time zones away, 106 degrees, two long walks, blah, blah, still the best job in the world, not complaining … but I’m going to let the column do the talking today.
Well, a pic, too, from the Fashion Mall along Las Vegas Boulevard …
