Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Morning Java: Radio guest Jordy Mercer

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, Lunatics …

>> Today’s TribLIVE Radio show — 1-2 p.m. — will feature special guest Jordy Mercer, the Pirates’ new everyday shortstop. He’s a good kid, and I hope this will give a glimpse of that.

We’ll also talk some minor leagues with Trib baseball writer Karen Price, who’s been making the rounds of the Pirates’ system. And of course, we’ll engross ourselves anew in the wit and wisdom of @Suckmeter.

To listen, just click on the link above. It’s free, easy, no signup. If you’ve got an iPhone, iPad or Android, we’ve got the upgraded TribLIVE Radio app. Also free and easy.

I want you involved, too …


Call: 412-320-7925

And you can email the show at any time, not just when it’s airing.

>> Here come the Phillies, and here, in all likelihood comes Brandon Cumpton back from Indy. I’ll be at the ballpark working on the Wednesday column.

This was our opening segment on The Final Word on the Pirates’ fantastic first half …

Also today, the Pirates’ top prospect, Jameson Taillon, is updated by Price.

>> The Penguins’ top prospects, Derrick Pouliot and Olli Maatta are updated, too, by Josh Yohe.

>> Pitt threw an ACC party. And Larry Fitzgerald showed. Jerry DiPaola did, too.

>> The Riverhounds’ Rich Costanzo, a local kid, is ‘humbled’ his teammates chose him to be captain. Our soccer man Matt Grubba looks ahead the next match on the Fourth.

>> Hope you can tune in this afternoon!
