Sports Call: Sept. 3, 2017 (Pt. 2)

WELCOME BACK WE CONTINUE HERE

PIRATES STARTED THE DAY BY ANNOUNCING HARRISON WILL BE DONE FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON HE HAS A BROKEN HAND 25th TIME HE WAS HIT THAT IS THE MOST HE IS IN THEIR, TIGHT, TAKES PITCHES, HE GETS HIT QUITE A BIT

LAST NIGHT, COSTLY ONE FOR HIM, ENDS THE SEASON WITH ALL INTENSE AND PURPOSES LET'S GO TO THE LINES BEGINNING WITH MIKE HOW ARE YOU DOING? HI, WHAT IS UP? I HAVE A QUESTION AND COMMENT ABOUT JOSH HARRISON I DON'T KNOW HOW GOOD YOUR MEMORY IS BUT 1977 TERRY BRADSHAW PLAYED MOST OF THE SEASON WITH A CAST ON HIS HAND WHY CAN'T JOSH PLAY WITH A CAST ON HIS HAND? I SEE HOCKEY PLAYERS PLAY WITH CASTS ON THEIR HANDS

IT IS HARD TO GRIP A BASEBALL BAT WHEN YOU RELY ON THAT, ON THE BAT HAND TRIGGER HAND ON THE SWING WHAT IS HE GOING TO DO? HE CAN NOT SWING A BAT, THEY WILL NOT PUT HIM IN THERE TO MAKE IT WORSE THERE IS ONLY 11 OR ONE MONTH LEFT OF THE SEASON THAT MEANS WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO GAIN BY PUTTING HIM IN THERE NOW HE IS DUE TO MAKE $10 MILLION NEXT YEAR

A FRACTION OF PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE THE PIRATES WOULD LIKE TO TRADE HIM AND RID THEMSELVES OF THAT SALARY, TOO THEY WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH MB CUHCHEN IF IT CONTINUES WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THE PIRATES? AND THE TIMING A LOT GOING ON THERE WITH THAT LET'S GO TO BOB

BOB? FINE, HOW ARE YOU DOING? GOOD, THANKS I KNOW HE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS HE KNOWS MORE THAN I DO CAN YOU TELL ME HOW I CAN NOTICE HOW CHRIS STEWART HANDLES THE PITCHERS? WELL, THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS HE IS OUT THERE MORE SO THAN HE HAS THAT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH IF YOU ARE A PITCHER

THIS IS A VETERAN GUY, HE KNOWS HOW TO DO IT THEY ARE LEARNING HOW TO DO IT AS HE GOES YES THEY HAVE ONE RUN WITH HIM THIS WEEKEND CATCHING I UNDERSTAND

I DON'T WANT HIM SEEING GUY THAT HAVE BEEN HERE FOR A LONG TIME EVALUATING YOUNGER GUYS I AGREE WITH IT I DON'T WANT TO SEE VETERAN GUYS, WHEN I SAW JOHN START THE OTHER NIGHT, I AM TO THE POINT I DON'T NEED TO SEE HIM ANY MORE I SAID JOHN TO ME HE IS A GOOD GUY TO HAVE ON A GUY'S BENCH

HE FELL OFF OF THE BENCH TO BE A GOOD HITTER WHEN YOU RELY ON HIM EVERY DAY FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE DAYS YOU ADMIT YOU HAVE A WEAKNESS I THOUGHT IT WAS HIM IN CINCINNATI RUNNING AROUND CARRYING HIS HAT IN HIS HAND ALL RIGHT, THANKS, MAN THANKS FOR THE CALL

PAUL ON THE NORTHSIDE WHAT IS UP, PAUL? DOING WELL I AM GOOD GOOD IT COULD BE EMBARRASSING FOR THE PIRATES

I KNOW THEY ARE PLAYING THE CUBS I DON'T THINK THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE INTERESTED IN EVEN THE PIRATES PLAYING THE CUBS THERE WILL BE MORE CHICAGO FANS IN THE SEATS YES THEY TRAVEL WELL

ESPECIALLY HERE THE LAST TIME THEY WERE IN, A LOT OF CUB FANS IN THE STANDS THAT IS EMBARRASSING FOR HIM PROBABLY HELPING ATTENDANCE WISE AND MONEY WISE, TOO A LITTLE BIT PIRATES HAVE THEMSELVES TO BLAME FOR THIS AT THIS POINT

AGAIN, PUTTING MORE INTO THE PRODUCT IF YOU DON'T, THE PRODUCT SUFFERS AND GUESS WHAT ELSE SUFFERS? ATTENDANCE YES IT WAS BAD THIS YEAR IT WILL GO DOWN AGAIN NEXT YEAR, TOO

APPRECIATE THE CALL LINE 3 WE GO WHAT IS UP? YOU KNOW, OVER THE PAST YEAR THE STEELERS SEEM LIKE THEY NEVER WANTED TO PAY QUARTERBACKS THAT IS THE LAST POSITION THEY WANT TO TRY TO PAY TOP DOLLAR THEY WANT TO GET HIM CHIEF

AND NOW, — NOW, ONE OR TWO GUYS FOR LIKE FIVE YEARS AND THAT BUT THAT DID NOT PAN OUT BUT THEY KEPT IT LOW NOW THEY ARE GOING OUT AND GETTING SOME GOOD CORNERBACKS AND THEY WILL HAVE TO PAY HIM $4 OR 5 MILLION THEY DID NOT WANT TO DO THAT

SEEMS LIKE THEY HAVE TO DO THAT WHAT DO YOU THINK? IS THAT WHAT THEY SHOULD BE DO SOMETHING FOR A LOT OF YEARS NEVER DRAFTED ANYONE IN THE FIRST ROUND WE SAW IT WITH BURNS LAST YEAR WE SAW FIRST AND A THIRD

WE SAW A SECOND 3 YEARS AGO THAT DID NOT TURN OUT THAT IS A HIGH PICK ON A CORNERBACK IT IS TERRIBLE THAT HE NEVER GOT ON THE FIELD IN 3 YEARS NO CHOICE BUT TO CUT HIM

THEY HAD DAVIS IN THE SECOND ROUND THEY DEVOTED A LOT OF TIME THEY HAD INJURIESAST YEAR TO THE POINT THEY GAVE UP THE PASSES LOOKING AT IT AS A MAJOR REASON WHY

THEY BELIEVE HE WILL BE — INJURIES LAST YEAR TO THE POINT THEY GAVE UP THE PASSES THEY WANT PRODUCTION THEY WANT TO WIN RIGHT NOW THEY WANT TO WIN RIGHT NOW

THEY ARE NOT WAITING AROUND ANY MORE THEY BROUGHT IN McDONALD BECAUSE THEY DID NOT WAIT ON JESSE JAMES TO DEVELOP THERE THAT IS WHY THEY BROUGHT IN GREEN LAST YEAR THAT DID NOT WORK THEIR MESSAGE IS, WE WANT TO WIN NOW AND WE WILL IMPROVE ON ALL POSITIONS IF WE CAN

HAVING SAID THAT, THERE IS AT LEAST WHEN I LOOK AT THE ROSTER AND YOU NEVER WILL SATISFY EVERY ROSTER POSITION THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH BACK UP, INSIDE LINEBACKER THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT OF DEPTH THERE WE NEED TO HOPE, RYAN, WHO HAD INJURIES, ALONG WITH WILLIAMS THEY ARE THERE FOR THE LIONS SHARE OF THE TIME THEIR BACK UPS, PRODUCTION HERE

WE WILL SEE HOW IT GOES AFTER THAT LET'S GO TO LINE ONE CHUCK, HOW ARE YOU DO SOMETHING HOW ARE YOU DOING? GOOD, THANKS FOR CALLING I AGREE WITH YOU

I WANT TO APPLAUD THE STEELERS THAT WIN NOW ADD THEY REALIZE THEY ONLY GOT ONE OR TWO YEARS LEFT WITH HIM — [INDISCERNIBLE] MAYBE ONE OR THREE OR YOU DON'T KNOW THAT IS WHY THEY ARE DOING THIS ABSOLUTELY

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THIS, WITH JOE IN THAT SECONDARY, THAT SECONDARY IS GOING TO FALL OUT THE ONLY WEAK LINK NOW WILL BE IN THE STARTING SAFETY MITCHELL I THINK HE IS TERRIBLE, TAKES BAD ANGLES, CAN NOT TACKLE HE WAS NOT THE SAME PLAYER AFTER INJURY GIVING UP THE MOST TOUCHDOWN PASSES LAST YEAR

THERE IS A REASON FOR THAT, TOO HE WAS INJURED AND HE HAD SURGERY I THINK MITCHELL IS NEEDED THEY WENT OUT TODAY AND GOT WILCOX IN CASE IT LINGERS AND IN CASE THEY HAVE DEPTH ISSUES BOB IS NEXT

HOW ARE YOU GOOD THANK YOU I WANT TO ASK A FEW QUESTIONS ONE IS, ARE THE STEELERS HAVE — DO THE STEELERS HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO SIGN STEPHEN? THANK YOU

THE QUESTION BECOMES THEY BROUGHT IN A LOT OF MONEY THEY BROUGHT IN MONEY ON WILCOX THEY WANTED TO TRY TO GET A DEAL DONE WITH THEIR KICKER NOT SURE IF THEY CAN DO BOTH A LOT OF THE PRACTICE SQUAD WHAT YOU DO MATT ON THAT LIST

SURPRISINGLY NOT ON THE LIST IS MARCUS INJURED AND PLAYED IN THE FINAL GAME A LOT OF POTENTIAL HE WAS NOT BROUGHT BACK A LIGHT OF LINEMEN AND OTHER PEOPLE THAT ARE THERE

HOPEFULLY POTENTIAL TO HELP AS WE GO ALONG WE HAVE NICK AND JOHN AND MORE
