Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Monday Wakeup Call: Early word on Final Word?

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, lunatics …

>> Switching things up a bit this week, Joe Starkey has the Monday column. When you read it, especially if you’re a Steelers fan, you’ll see why. Terrific stuff.

Because of the Stanley Cup playoffs, in general, my writing days are about to become a lot less predictable. I’ll be doing Penguins pretty much day in and day out for the duration of their stay.

This week, the columns will run Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

>> As soon as we have the full video podcast of last night’s debut of the WPXI-TV/Trib debut of the ‘The Final Word,’ I’ll place it right here. I was told it should be sometime in the morning.

In the interim, here’s a way to see it in four segments on WPXI’s site:

>> We now know the Penguins will be facing the Islanders in the first round.

What are your thoughts on the matchup?

>> Jeff Locke’s back-to-back superlative starts might make for the single most meaningful event of the Pirates’ 15-win April. I’ll say it for the millionth time: It’s about starting pitching.

>> Now J.J. Moore is leaving Pitt, too?

Something we should know about going on up there at the Pete?

>> I’ll visit today with TribLIVE Radio at 11:30 a.m.
