Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: March 15, 2019 (Part 2)

WELCOME BACK WE CONTINUE RIGHT HERE ON PITTSBURGH CW

BOB POMPEANI WITH YOU 412-575-2600 IS THAT NUMBER TO CALL A LOT OF TWEETS IN HERE RON MATTHEWS ON TWITTER SAYS, VIRGINIA REMINDS ME OF ONE OF THOSE PIT TEAMS FROM THE 2000 FULL OF POTENTIAL, BUT ALWAYS CAME UP SHORT ATTORNEY TIME

HE IS SPEAKING ABOUT TONY BENNETT'S TEAM, VIRGINIA CAVALIERS LOST TONIGHT TO VIRGINIA STATE THE FOURTH SEED IN THIS ACC THEY BEAT THEM HANDILY BY 10 BUT THEY REALLY DIDN'T COME CLOSE TO TAKING CONTROL OF THAT GAME FROM FLORIDA STATE

SO, REMEMBER LAST YEAR, VIRGINIA WAS THE FIRST TEAM TO LOSE TO A 16 SEED IN THE A TEAM I STILL THINK THEY WILL GET A NUMBER 1 SEED BUT THAT LOSS HURTS THEM YOU WANTED OUT THERE GOING TO HAVE SOME TROUBLE IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT A REALLY GOOD DEFENSIVE TEAM

OF COURSE TONIGHT, THEY GOT INSIDE OF THE THEY'VE GOT SOME REALLY GOOD SHOOTERS, JUST VIRGINIA THEY CAN SCORE THIS YEAR, BUT CAN THEY OVERCOME WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LAST YEAR AND USE THAT AS MOTIVATION THAT YOU WE ALSO HAD THIS JARED STARTS ON TWITTER SAYS, HEY, BOB, WITH DESMITH PLAYING LAST NIGHT, DO YOU THINK MURRAY STARTS BOTH GAMES THIS WEEKEND? THE ANSWER TO THAT WOULD BE YES, JERRY

NUMBER 1, TOMORROW IS A 1:00 YOU HAVE A NIGHT IN THE FOLLOWING NIGHT SO THERE IS PLENTY OF REST THERE, I THINK MURRAY HAS BEEN SO GOOD, I WOULD KEEP GOING WITH DESMITH WAS OUTSTANDING

IS THE BACKUP AND MARIA STILL THE STARTER, THE WEST PAUL IN BEACH VIEW, WHAT'S UP, PAUL? WHAT'S GOING ON? I WANT TO KNOW, THE OTHER NIGHT — I WANT TO KNOW WHY — NOT IN THE HALL OF FAME YET HE SHOULD BE IN THE HALL OF FAME I DON'T THINK HE IS

WASN'T HIM HE WAS PROBABLY THE BEST ATHLETE EVER TO COME OUT OF WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA HE PROBABLY HAD — HAS TO JUST WHAT AN OVERALL GRADE MORE THAN THAT, WHAT A NICE PERSON HE'S ONE OF THE MOST GENUINE PEOPLE YOU'LL EVER WANT TO MEET

HE DOESN'T HAVE AN ATTITUDE LIKE I AM — I DID ALL THIS I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW ABOUT THEM, THE YOUNGER GENERATION, GOING TO GOOGLE AND FIND OUT ABOUT IT HE IS A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME KIND OF TALENT AT LEAST FROM AROUND HERE OKAY

APPRECIATED LET'S GO TO WILL AND McKEES ROCKS WHAT'S UP, WELL? I WAS WONDERING IF I COULD TALK A LITTLE BIT OF PIRATES WITH YOU SURE

RIGHT NOW WITH THE WAY JOHN WHO COMES RANGERS HAVE BEEN GOING, DO YOU THINK HE HAS THE INSIDE TRACK TO BE A STARTER? YES DO YOU? ABSOLUTELY HOPE SO, BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN A HUGE FAN SINCE HE HAS BEEN HERE BUT, I JUST THINK THAT HE LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER THAN WHEN HE FIRST GOT HERE, YOU KNOW, IN 16 AND I AM JUST HOPING FOR THE BEST YEAH, LISTEN, IT'S NOT A GOOD PLATOON SITUATION, BECAUSE HE IS A RIGHT-HAND HITTER

MOST OF THE STARTERS YOU'RE GOING TO FACE IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE ARIGHT TEMPERATURES IF YOU PLATOON, HE WILL NEVER PLAY: MORAN'S OKAY HE HIT A HOMERUN YESTERDAY BUT, I THINK THE WAY JOHN HAS SWUNG THE BAT, AND KNOWING THAT THIS TEAM NEEDS A LITTLE POWER IN ALIGNING, I WOULD GO JOHN HOGAN TO START

AND I WOULD WORK MORAN AND WHEN I CAN SO, I THINK GONG IS REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENED TO THEM HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM, WHY HE NEEDS TO TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY AND CHERISH IT I THINK YOU ARE SEEING WHAT NORMALLY SPAWNS OUT OF THAT SORT OF RESPONSE

HE HAS BEEN REALLY GOOD THE SPRING HE LOOKS GREAT EVERYBODY SAYS HE HAS GOT A NEW ATTITUDE WE WILL SEE IF IT CARRIES OVER INTO THE REGULAR SEASON APPRECIATED, BOB

I WAS GOOD TALKING TO YOU THANKS FOR THE CALL LET'S GO TO BILL AND CRANBERRY WHAT'S UP, BILL? ARE YOU TONIGHT? THANK YOU, PAUL THIS IS BILL FROM CRANBERRY

I'M THE GUY THAT MET YOU DOWN AT DAPPER DOWN I REMEMBER TALKING TO YOU, BILLY SURE HEY, WHAT'S THE STORY, DO YOU KNOW ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE RAFFLES BURGER CONTRACT? I EXPECTED IT TO HAPPEN TODAY I THINK IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

I THINK IT'S ALREADY AGREED- UPON IF NOT, THEY'RE JUST CROSSED THE TEASE, THOUGHT THE ICE IT WILL HAPPEN IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME WHEN IT DOES BY THE WAY, SPEAKING OF THAT, I HAVE TO TAKE A LITTLE SHOT AT MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK

I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR WHAT — SPORTS ILLUSTRATED DOES, I THOUGHT THE ARTICLE TODAY, QUOTING TWO RUNNING BACKS, ONE OF WHOM CLAIMS HE WAS MISQUOTED ISAAC REDMAN, ABOUT RAFFLES BURGER THE OTHER ONE, SOME GUY WHO MAKES A CLAIM, JOSH HARRIS, I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER WHEN HE WAS HERE THAT HE DELIBERATELY FUMBLED INTO GAME FIRST OF ALL, BACK THAT UP WITH SOME PROOF

IF YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE THAT ALLEGATION THE SECOND OF ALL, IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE PEOPLE IN THE MEDIA WHO SIDE WITH ANTONIO BROWN ARE TRYING TO BRING THE STORY LINE, THIS NARRATIVE THAT BEN ROETHLISBERGER IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE LOCKER ROOM WHICH IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE OH, I EXPECTED MORE FROM THEM I THOUGHT THAT WAS A REACH

I THOUGHT THE HEADLINE WAS MISLEADING AND I EXPECT MORE FROM SPORTS ILLUSTRATED 412-575-2600 IS THAT NUMBER TO CALL BUT I EXPECT THE CONTRACT TO BE ANNOUNCED SOMETIMES IN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ALREADY BY NOW

A LOT OF US DID BUT WHATEVER REASON, IT HAS NOT BEEN ANNOUNCED LET'S GO TO CALVIN AND CLEARFIELD WHAT'S UP, CALVIN? ARE YOU? GOOD EVENING, BOB I GOT A QUESTION

WHO DO YOU THINK — SHOULD BE PUT IN OUTFIELD FOR OPENING DAY ON MONDAY, APRIL 1 IT WILL BE JAMISON TYRONE OKAY SURPRISED BY THAT I THOUGHT – SINCE MUSGROVE — FROM LAST YEAR, I THOUGHT HE WOULD PUT HIM OUT THERE, MAYBE ON THE FIRST DAY OF BASEBALL

I THOUGHT HE WOULD PUT HIM AT THE BUT I GUESS I WAS WRONG I THINK HE HAD A PRETTY GOOD PITCHING GAME TODAY, DID HE NOT? HE WENT FOUR INNINGS, GAVE UP 4 HITS, TWO RUNS STRUCK OUT FIVE HE WILL BE PART OF THE ROTATION, NO DOUBT

BUT, TYRONE IS THE ACE I THINK ARCHER WILL BE THE 3 GUY WILLIAMS LOOKS GOOD YESTERDAY, TOO HE HAD 5 SCORELESS INNINGS THEY DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE STARTING PITCHING, AS LONG AS THEY REMAIN HEALTHY AND WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT IT TO BE, THEY WILL BE SOLID THERE

OKAY ALL RIGHT THANK YOU, I APPRECIATE THE CALL 412-575-2600 THAT IS THE NUMBER

YOU CAN ALSO TWEET US AT — REMEMBER TO JOIN US FOR THE NUMBER 1 CONFERENCE FOR SHOWDOWN WE WILL BE LIVE SUNDAY NIGHT 11:35 KDKA THE PAYMENTS PLAY AT NIGHT AGAINST THE FLYERS THAT WILL BE MARCH MADNESS BRACKETS TO TALK ABOUT

THAT IS ALWAYS A DIFFICULT TIME OF THE YEAR YOU CAN LOOK AT THIS ANALYTICALLY, BUT SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA JUST THROW CAUTION TO THE WIN AND PICK SOMEONE YOU WOULD NOT PICK, JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY UPSETS THE PARODY IS REALLY MORE AUTOMATIC TODAY IN COLLEGE BASKET MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, WHICH I THINK IS NOTHING LET'S GO TO BOB ADELPHI WHAT'S UP,? THANK YOU, BOB FOR TAKING THE TOPIC A BIG QUESTION FOR YOU HERE

STEPHEN A SMITH, ESPN, RIPS ROETHLISBERGER FOR CALLING OUT THE PLAYS ON HIS TEAM HOWEVER, HE NEVER RIPS INTO ANY OF THE NBA PLAYERS THAT ARE CONSISTENTLY CALLING OUT PLAYERS ON THEIR TEAMS I WONDER WHY? YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS THERE I THINK, FIRST OF ALL, AGAIN, I THINK THERE IS A NARRATIVE OUT THERE AMONG NATIONAL MEDIA, WHO FOR WHATEVER REASON, SUPPORT ANTONIO BROWN I HAVE SAID THIS FROM THE BEGINNING, 95% OF THEIR DRAMA WAS ON NUMBER 84

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY QUESTION ABOUT THAT HE WAS THE GUY WHO DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING HE SHOULD NEVER HAVE DONE IN THAT FINAL WEEK WHO KNOWS WHAT MOTIVATED HIM TO DO IT? BUT, HE SKIPPED OUT ON A GAME HE WENT AGAINST HIS COACHES WISHES TO GET AN MRI HE DID EVERYTHING HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO DO

AND THE CONSEQUENCES WERE, THEY WERE NOT GOING TO KEEP HIM AROUND FINE, HE WANTED OUT GOOD THAT'S HOW YOU'RE GOING TO FORCE YOUR WAY OUT, SACRIFICE YOUR DIGNITY, YOUR REPUTATION, YOU CAN DO IT THAT WAY IF YOU WANT MR ANTONIO BROWN, MR

INFLATED CHEST AT THE SAME TIME, I SAW WERE MIKE MAYALL, THE NEW GM AS OAKLAND, SAYS ANTONIO BROWN WAS NOT WORTH THE 35th PICK HE WAS NOT WORTH GIVING UP A SECOND-ROUND PICK FOR ANTONIO STOOD THERE AND LISTENED TO THAT SO I THINK EVERYONE KNOWS IT WAS GOING TO BE A DIFFICULT SELL

NOT MANY PEOPLE WANTED THE BEST RECEIVER IN THE NFL FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS THAT TO ME SAYS A LOT ABOUT ANTONIO BROWN THANKS FOR THE CALL APPRECIATE THAT 412-575-2600

LET'S GO TO LINE 1 MIKE IN NORTH FOR SALES WHAT'S UP, MIKE? LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THE PIRATES ANTONIO BROWN CAN YOU THINK MORAN COULD PLAY SECOND BASE WITH — AT THIRD? THANKS

FIRST OF ALL, I DON'T THINK THAT HE HAS THE RANGE THOUGHT HE WAS SLOW OFF THE LINE HIS DEFENSE IS OKAY, BUT IT IS CERTAINLY NOT FULL OF RANGE I THINK ADAM FRAZIER IS GOING TO BE HER SECOND BASEMAN BUT, THE QUESTION IS, CAN HE HANDLE IT EVERY SINGLE DAY? I DON'T KNOW

WE WILL SEE HE HAS BEEN OKAY SO FAR IN THE SPRING HE HAS GOT A NICE BAT I LIKE HIM AND ALINA BUT I'M NOT SURE ABOUT HIS DEFENSE, AND CERTAINLY MORAN'S RANGE WOULD LIMIT HIM PLAYING ANY OTHER POSITION BUT THIRD- BASE
