Brief and to the Point …
>> The Wednesday column is about the Pirates’ front office job security.
I’ll tell you right here that it probably raises more questions than it answers. And I’m OK with that, because that’s really the stage described in there: Bob Nutting has questions to ask, and he’s got to dig to get the right answers.
I’ll also tell you that it’s been a weird few days. Maybe because of the Friday column, maybe because of the Pirates’ collapse, I’ve had people from around baseball calling me — unsolicited — to ask what’s going on. These are people I don’t hear from as often anymore, not being on the beat full-time, which makes it stand out all the more.
Really, being completely candid, it’s not all that different than the summer of 2007. Not in content, not in tone.
Once the vultures start circling, they seldom disperse.
>> One last time, here’s the podcast of the first episode of the new radio show, featuring an opening rant about the Pirates’ ‘blame game,’ Jamie Dixon on renewing the Pitt-West Virginia Brawl, and our Mark Kaboly on obsessing over Steelers film.
And here’s video of that opening rant.
