Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Podcast: Taking your calls on Pirates, Penguins, Steelers

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Morning, Lunatics …

My weekly TribLIVE Radio show featured a half-hour of your calls, as well as emails, our top three sound bites, our Suckmeter segment and a visit from Trib football writer Alan Robinson.

Here’s video from a couple of the calls …

Unrelated to this, I’ll have a Thursday column from the Steelers’ OTAs.

    You touched on it during the interview. 1. Burnett at minimal should of been tenured I would of been ok with the tenure of 14 just for the pick at the least. Its my opinion like mark stated they didnt tenure cuz they were scared he would accept,now just my opinion i know but thats how i feel.

    2. Ishakawa as your 1st,yea they went and got davis later on by then they were what 8/9 games under .500?they werent in position for experiments and thats exactly what they came 2 spring training with at 1b experiments lambo/ishakawa.

    3 Rf i really do get the polanco debate,the super2 i get it i understand,who knew he would kill aaa pitching like this b4hand anyway. But tabata/snider just isnt acceptable if winning a pennant is your goal its just now.

    if they would of given me something,anything besides just volquez and davis a month 2 late. Id be ok,its just my feeling that they havent done everything they could of to try and win,win now 4 a change.

    Dk. I love your work. My ku blocked me in twitter because we disagree on pirates. I was born and raised in mount Lebanon. Was a member of fabulous 5 in basjetball. And played at university of Chicago. Unfortunately met a girl from New York and have lived here for last 14 years with 3 kids now. My one constant connection to Pittsburgh is you and sports I just find this off season ridiculously frustrating and 1 good year out of 20 does not give them free pass the performance today should elaborate tgat we are not as gifted as everyone else and need the fight.

    Where did you grow up in Lebo?

    I grew up in Sunset Hills, went to Howe Elementary. Many, many good memories there.

    I married a lady from Boston. We had one son. I now have two grandkids who I wil visit shortly

    Keep in touch, where do you live now, in case I don’t have you listed on the lunatic nation?

    BTW, not “unfortunate” you met the love of your life ;-)
