Well it was an amazing weekend for Pittsburgh sports. The Penguins won, Pitt won, PSU won, the Steelers won and the Eagles lost. Great job for our sports teams. Here are some links from the Pittsburgh sports scene.
Tim over at Bucco Fans has some real quality material over the past few days about the Pirates. Cutch and Jose Tabata are the top prospects in the International League.
Tim also put together a nice list of what the future looks like at each position for the Pirates and how all the trades worked out from this season.
Perry Hill will not return to the Pirates next year. This is a huge loss for the Pirates. Hill was very much overlooked by the Pirate fans as to what he did for this infield. He made vast improvements to Andy LaRoche and Delwyn Young and is just good at what he does. Without Jack Wilson and Fredy Sanchez are gone so the Pirates really need to tighen down their defense.
Gerry Dulac gives his post game report card of the Steelers win over the Browns.
The Cleveland Plain dealer wonders if the referee's measurement gave the Steelers unearned points? I got nothing. That was not a first down.
The Cleveland Browns did not gain a lot of yards yesterday.
Jeff Reed had another steller night at the club. He was cited for public intoxication amongst other things. This will more than likely end Jeff Reed's tenure in the Burgh. He might finish out the season here but he will probably not be extended a contract. I really wanted him to sign because he is a big part of the team and is a very good kicker but there comes a time you got to leave players go. He just didn't learn.
The Steelers still have some improving to do.
They do have improvements but you can't help but smile when your team gets 10 plays of 20 yards or more against a team.
"I feel good," Polamalu said in the locker room. "Had we lost, who knows? But after a victory, everything feels pretty good." ESPN's James Walker still thinks the Steelers are in a good position.
The Pitt Panthers are in the rankings. I know there isn't a lot of college football talk here but the Panthers have been doing pretty well and Bill Stull has played very good football this year after most have given up on them.
The Penguins new arena should be ready by August 1.
Here is what we are looking at this week in Pittsburgh sports:
