WASHINGTON — Morning, Lunatics …
>> The Friday column looks into the case of Clint Hurdle v. A.J. Burnett and comes to the conclusion that this was an excellent thing for these Pirates.
Here, too, is game coverage of this really weird game by Rob Biertempfel.
And here are official game highlights from MLB.com.
Here’s some of what Burnett had to say afterward …
>> The weekly chat is today at noon, right here on the blog. You can submit entries within the field as soon as the post goes up. No need to wait on me.
Duly inspired, here’s a question for you: Do you feel Ben Roethlisberger has any legitimate downfield threat with Mike Wallace no longer around?
If so, which of Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, Plaxico Burress, Jerricho Cotchery or rookie Markus Wheaton would be the best bet?
Anyway, I’ll cover practice and write a Sunday column. Initial plan is to do one of those vignette-type pieces, just collecting a bunch of different scenes. We’ll see. Those are no picnic if the material isn’t there.
Oh, and check out the Steel Mill blog this weekend. You’ll see why.
>> Hope to have you in the chat!
And if you’re out in Latrobe and see a guy in a Green Lantern T holding a venti Starbucks drink, by all means, stop and say hello.
