Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: September 11, 2019 (Pt. 3)


. WELCOME BACK. WE CONTINUE LIVE, PITTSBURGH CW, BOB POMPEANI AND PAUL ZEISE. PAUL, THIS IS DIRECTED TO YOU AND ME, OF COURSE. THIS IS FROM KEVIN DAVIS. I KNOW I’M BEATING A DEAD HORSE HERE. HEINZ FIELD SELLS OUT WITH RECORD CROWDS. BEAVER STADIUM SELLS OUT AND PITT AND PENN STATE PLAY. HOW MUCH MORE MONEY CAN THESE SCHOOLS MAKE PLAYING SOMEONE ELSE RATHER THAN EACH OTHER? I DON’T THINK IT’S ABOUT THAT. PITT IS GOING TO SELL OUT NO MATTER WHO THE OPPONENT IS. THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE A HOME AT HOME. THEY WANT ONE HOME AT HOME SERIES AND THEY WANT TO MIX UP WHO THEY PLAY AGAINST. THAT’S REALLY WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO. THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE TWO HOME GAMES EVERY SINGLE YEAR, NO MATTER WHAT. SOMEONE NEEDS TO INTERVIEW THEM AND SAY FOR THE BETTER. OF THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA, YOU CAN’T HAVE IT THAT WAY. I PLEAD IGNORANT ON IT, BUT NEXT YEAR THE PITCHING STAFF, WHERE DO YOU THINK AGUILAR FITS IN NEXT YEAR? ALSO THE CATCHING SITUATION, DIAZ NOT VERY GOOD, AND RYAN REYNOLDS CONSIDERED A ROOKIE. IS THERE SOMEONE AHEAD OF HIM IN. REYNOLDS WON’T EVEN COME CLOSE. ALONZO IS NEARING 50 HOME RUNS. HOW IS BRIAN REYNOLDS GOING TO DEAL WITH THAT? AGREZOL IS NOT GOING TO BE THERE. I HAVEN’T SEEN ENOUGH FROM KELLAR THAT HE’S GOING TO BE IN THE ROTATION. MUSGROVE HAS BEEN UP AND DOWN. SAME OF TREVOR WILLIAMS, WHO HAS REGRESSED THIS YEAR. WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU GOT? DO YOU THINK CHRIS ARCHER CAN COME BACK AND GET THERE? I HAVEN’T SEEN ANY EVIDENCE OF THAT. THAT’S THE PROBLEM FOR NEXT YEAR. THEIR PITCHING STAFF IN GENERAL. IF YOU’RE GOING TO DO THAT, YOU’VE GOT TO SPEND MONEY. PETE IN SQUIRREL HILL. HOW ARE YOU PETE? GREG WAS ON THE RADIO THIS AFTERNOON. THEY ASKED ABOUT THE LATEST INCIDENT AND GREG SAYS HE ADMIRES THE ORGANIZATION FOR REPORTING IT. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THEY CAN’T FEEL THE BALL, THROW THE BALL, EXECUTE A SIMPLE RUNDOWN, AND HE ADMIRES THE ORGANIZATION FOR REPORTING ON A FIGHT IN THE CLUBHOUSE. I GUESS IF YOU’VE GOT NOTHING ELSE TO ADMIRE, I GUESS THAT’S WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO. THANKS. ALL RIGHT. I’VE HEARD A NUMBER OF PEOPLE SAY THAT AND I AGREE. IT’S SILLY. I MEAN, IF NEIL HUNTINGTON WOULD HAVE COME OUT AND SAID THIS INJURY WAS SOMETHING ELSE, HE WOULD HAVE LOOKED STUPID. IT WOULD HAVE COME OUT. HE HAD TO COME OUT AND SAY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED. IT’S A BAD YEAR, ASIDE FROM REYNOLDS AND NEWMAN AND BELL, BUT EVEN WITH THOSE PERFORMANCES YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO BE BETTER THAN THEY ARE.
