Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: October 30, 2019 (Pt. 3)


WELCOME BACK TO THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. LET’S GO TO TWITTER. STEVE IS WATCHING THE SHOW WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND, AMY. DO YOU THINK JAELYN SAMUELS IS A BETTER RUNNER THAN JAMES CONNOR? NO. I THINK HE BECAME THIS FOLK HERO BECAUSE OF A FEW RUNS. WAS AT THE SEATTLE GAME, THE SEATTLE GAME IS WHEN THEY — THEY USE THEM IN THE WILDCAT. THEY ARE KIND OF RUN TOGETHER. WHATEVER GAME IT WAS. THE GUY HAS BECOME A FOLK HERO BECAUSE A STRETCH WHEN HE WAS IN THE WILDCAT. NO. YOU WANT TO TELL ME HE CATCHES THE BALL OUT OF THE BACKFIELD BETTER, GREAT. YES, HE DOES. SO DOES ROSIE NICKS. WHO CARES? THE PIRATES SIGNED A PITCHER TODAY OFF WAIVERS FROM COLORADO. RON HOWARD. LET’S GO OUT TO MIKE IN OAKLAND. THEM BY — HOW IS IT GOING? I WILL TRY TO BE QUICK. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT PAUL’S COLUMN ABOUT GIVING NOTHING A CHANCE. I LOVE A LOT OF YOUR COLUMNS BUT I TOTALLY DISAGREE. HE TOLD PEOPLE THAT HE DOES NOT PLAN ON RAISING PAYROLL WHEN HE KNOWS THAT THE DRAFT AND DEVELOPMENT WILL START TAKING A LOT OF TIME AGAIN BECAUSE WE HAVE NEW PEOPLE. I APPRECIATE THAT. SORRY TO CUT YOU OFF. I WANT TO GET WITH PAUL ON THIS ONE. HOW ABOUT NOTHING COMING OUT AND SAYING THAT BASEBALL IS NOT THERE FOR THE PIRATES. IS AND HE THE GUY THAT VOTED AGAINST THE SALARY CAP? IT IS NOT A FAIR PLAYING FIELD. IT THEN HE DID SAY, WE WILL NOT USE THAT AS AN EXCUSE. MY ONLY THING IS, IF YOU DON’T TRUST BOB NUTTING TRUST TRAVIS WILLIAMS. TRAVIS WILLIAMS CAME OUT AND SO PAYROLL DOES NOT MATTER. THAT IS THE TEAM AUTO. I DO NOT BELIEVE HE WOULD TAKE A JOB THAT HE DID NOT BELIEVE HE HAS A CHANCE TO BE SUCCESSFUL. HE IS A YOUNGER GUY. IF THIS FAILS, IT DERAILS HIS CAREER. HE HAS BEEN ON AN UPWARD PATH. HE DID NOT HAVE TO TAKE THIS JOB. HE IS A GUY WHO WANTS TO LIVE IN PITTSBURGH. HE HAS A HOUSE HERE. YOU TAKE A JOB THAT YOU CAN SUCCEED. I DON’T LIKE WHEN THEY SAY PAYROLL DOES NOT MATTER. IT DOES MATTER. MAYBE YOU DON’T HAVE TO SPEND $200 MILLION OR $150 MILLION. BUT LET’S GET US INTO THE 100 MILLIONS AND GET US COMPETITIVE WITH THE REDS, CARDINALS AND BREWERS. TEAMS YOU ARE FIGHTING WITH WE HAVE 15 SECONDS LEFT. FINAL WORDS? NO. MAKE THE SWITCH TO KDKA NEWS . RIGHT NOW.
