My Two Cents: Pirates and 2021 MLB Preview

Tis the season when I start getting asked, “Just how bad will the Pirates be this year?” I offer this as visual evidence of my response. You never wanna strike out and get hit in the penis at the same time. Bad look. pic.twitter.com/fD5aJbEr8T — Jared Carrabis (@Jared_Carrabis) March 13, 2021 The Pirates did make (more…)

Sweet to Elite

The gap appears to be closing in college basketball.  Duke, Louisville, and Kentucky didn’t make the tournament. Kansas got blown right out of the gym by a six seed in the second round. North Carolina didn’t even get out of the first round. Guys have already announced their intentions to transfer from both Duke and (more…)

Two Guys Talking: Episode 129-Brackets Busted Edition

Tim and Jed commiserate over some of the worst brackets they have ever predicted. There is a ton of March Madness discussion including a look at all the brackets, “It won’t happen, but…”, Two Minute Warning, and a special 80’s Regional Finals edition of This Week in Sports. Along with the hoops talk, the Guys (more…)

The Steelers version of March Madness

What is the Pittsburgh Steelers’ plan for 2021? Do they have a plan? An organization who has always prided itself on building teams to win championships is making some mysterious moves that will make it really hard to be in that championship hunt in 2021. The Steelers have never been about rebuilding. They’ve never been (more…)

Two Cents worth of March Madness

March. Madness. It has already been fun, and we have only climbed to the top of the first hill on this wild ride. Of course we couldn’t quite escape some COVID-19 issues, as Duke, Kansas, and Virginia had to be sent home during their conference tournaments. Hopefully all of the fail safes that were put (more…)

One year later the Madness returns

We have almost come full circle. It was a year ago this week that COVID-19 started to envelope our lives like a dense fog.  We heard the whispers.  We sensed it could be bad.  We tried to look the other way.  I was still projecting teams to the NCAA Tournament. Most of the conferences that (more…)

Turn the calendar and enjoy the Madness

I woke up this morning, ran to the calendar, and gleefully tore off the page. I stared at the new page for a moment and soaked it all in. March. Which means Madness. Which means joy. Great joy. As basketball junkies we were robbed of our great joy last year by COVID-19. With COVID-19 still (more…)

Questions aplenty for Steelers offseason

It’s nice to be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. You just won the Super Bowl, and much of your team will return intact. Oh, and you have plenty of salary cap space—well above league average—to manipulate next year’s roster. The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Much like Tampa Bay, the Steelers have an aging (more…)

Baseball is broken

The Pittsburgh Pirates payroll for 2021 is currently $30 million. Maybe Big Spender Bob will allow for that to get close to $40 million.  Trevor Bauer, now of the Dodgers, will make $40 million. Mike Trout will make $37 million. Jacob DeGrom and Gerrit Cole Will each make $36 million.  How ticked off is Cole (more…)
