Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Friday Wakeup Call: A column about baseball

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

BRADENTON, Fla. — Morning, lunatics …

>> The Friday column is about baseball.

>> The weekly chat is today at 1 p.m., and it will take place from Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota. All topics welcome, as always.

>> Didn’t see any of the Penguins’ apparently nasty loss in Raleigh, but it sure reads like it was a lot more of the same. All I can contribute to the discourse is that anyone looking at goaltending as an issue — not this game, any game — is utterly missing the point.

>> I do know that this image alone was pretty jarring …


>> The Steelers’ restructuring, as non-newsy event as any in the offseason given its negligible impact on the actual contracts and that it happens every year, now includes Ben Roethlisberger and $6 million.

>> The new backup QB option has three names.

>> Here’s hoping you can hop into the chat. Always room for one more.
