Morning, lunatics …
>> The TribLIVE Radio show today — 1-2 p.m. — will feature special guest Paul Chryst, talking about Pitt’s highly interesting 2013 football schedule, as well as other topics related to the coming season.
Also, the Trib’s Penguins beat writer, Rob Rossi, will check in from Florida. And the local Twitter legend @suckmeter will offer, in his own inimitable manner, the Suck of the Week in Pittsburgh sports.
I want you to be involved, too. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Or call 412-320-7925.
>> Enjoyed Pitt’s news conference over at Heinz Field. Had several good conversations, including with always amiable Steve Pederson on a host of topics, and I’ll share one with you right here.
This, of course, is senior-to-be wide receiver Devin Street …
>> A GM who acquires throw-ins better than the best player he trades, that’s a pretty good GM. Ray Shero getting Matt Niskanen? Yeah, him, too, but this is about Pascal Dupuis.
>> It’ll be interesting to see if Mark Eaton is used soon by the Penguins, maybe even tonight against the Panthers. No way he was just added to the roster to be a taxi guy. Josh Yohe reports.
>> It’ll be interesting, too, to see if Starling Marte can become a good on-base guy out of the leadoff spot. Rob Biertempfel checks with another well-known free-swinger in Bradenton.
A sunsplashed video on that topic …
>> It’ll be further interesting, to pound this pointeless meme into a pulp, to see if Jamie Dixon will ever get his wish for a true go-to scorer. Kevin Gorman reports.
>> Hope to hear from you for the show. If not, the podcast will be up here shortly afterward.
