Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Podcast: Timmons seeks ‘another level’ to his play

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Here’s today’s TribLIVE Radio show podcast featuring my special guest Lawrence Timmons, discussing — with no small amount of humility — how he might improve up on his excellent 2012 season.

Also on the show, I ask the Trib’s Chris Adamski to talk some Penn State and West Virginia, and a certain unmentionable topic gets mentioned by @suckmeter.

Here’s video of the opening segment of my taking calls from fans regarding Starling Marte’s drop …

Thanks to all who called and emailed!

    I remember the Parker commercial as well. And the Dale Berra one where they threw his something and he caught it, and he said something like ‘see, I can do it’.

    Later of course, we found out that Boo Boo was a coke head, which might explain some of his ‘jitters’.

  2. MadTurk says:

    There needs to be another level and maybe another on another this one.

  3. Adam Perry says:

    why am I the only Pittsburgh fan who can admit that McCutchen is failing – especially lately – with RISP? It’s a big problem moving forward in the pennant race.

    As the pressure gets hotter, this year, McCutchen’s stats decline. That is alarming. Look at Dominic Brown, Allen Craig, Jose Bautista, Adam Jones, Chris Davis, Trout, Phillips, et al – their stats improve with RISP. Cutch’s decline sharply.

    Cutch with
    no one on base: .969 OPS
    RISP: .751 OPS
    RISP with two outs: .668

    Anyone who doesn’t think the fact that the Pirates’ best player’s performance sharply declines in pressure situations this year isn’t a huge concern down the stretch is kidding themselves, or just has a man-crush on McCutchen. Look at how the Pirates intentionally walked Phillips and Craig last night with RISP, and then how Cutch was an easy out both times he came up with RISP. It’s a big issue moving forward if he doesn’t start producing in those situations.

    DK Enjoyed the video. I will just take the next Marte stolen base that leads to a game winning run to get everyone back off the ledge.
    I really don’t approve of all the finger pointing at the young man! You are right, he goes all out and he made an error. Move along now….nothing more to see!
