I could spend this entire blog entry and the next dissecting all that he said and how it doesn’t sound as if his nothing’s-wrong attitude has changed, but I’ll instead applaud him for apparently reporting for the Steelers’ OTAs a little lighter and in quality shape.

>> The Pirates got another superlative start from Francisco Liriano.
>> Mostly out of commission today because of the drive, which actually will begin shortly after this very filed is shut down for the night!
