Mission accomplished! Or at least the first mission. It's our first chance to talk, so tell me your feelings about the Pirates clinching a playoff spot. I totally enjoyed anchoring the TV coverage, I can tell you that.
Ok...celebrating's over for now. Back to reality. To me, the bullpen has become somewhat of a concern. And how big a deal is it to get home field for the wild card game? At 12:30, we'll talk to Rob King, who was in Chicago for the clincher.
It is what it is, but I have a bit of a problem with the Steelers decision to not let the 1st graders play the same games as the 6th graders. Gerry Dulac of the PG talks Steelers at 1:30. And the Pens finish the pre-season tonight in Detroit. Paul Steigerwald of Root Sports will call the game tonight, and joins me to talk hockey at 1 today.
