THEY HAVE SOME INJURIES TO DEAL WITH THEY ALSO HAVE TO BE UNDER THE CATCH, TRADE, RUMORS ARE CIRCULATING WE HAVE A LOT TO GET INTO, IT IS FOR FOUR MEMBERS BEING INDUCTED TONIGHT. STEELERS BACK IN THE DAY ALONG WITH LARRY BROWN, OUTSTANDING TIGHT AND THE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN NEGOTIATED HIS OWN CONTRACT HE NEEDED MAJOR WAS SMART ENOUGH TO GET IT DONE BY HIMSELF AND WHAT A GREAT PLAYER THAT MAN WAS WITH THE ORGANIZATION, TREMENDOUS MAN. THEN YOU HAVE HINES COME YOU KNOW WHAT HE DID, AND YOU SEE THEM TOMORROW AT THE GAME AS THEY ARE ACKNOWLEDGED AT HALFTIME FOR THE HALL OF HONOR IT IS THE CLASS OF 2019. LET’S GET TO THE LINES, WE HAVE A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON, WE HAVE WHILE IN McKEES ROCKS, WHAT IS UP? HOW ARE YOU THIS EVENING? GOOD HOW ARE YOU DOING? BUT I’M OKAY HOW ARE YOU TO TALK ABOUT CLINT HURDLE IN THE MIDDLE POSITION TO DO MY. NO GO AHEAD BE RESPECT I WANTED TO GET YOUR OPINION ON THIS. IT SEEMS APPARENT TO ME, BOB THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO, YOU KNOW, TO KEEP THE FAN BASE HAPPY, TO COME OUTSIDE AND HIRE HIM, RIGHT? BUT YES, I WOULD THINK IF YOU’RE GOING TO DO IT THE RIGHT WAY YOU GO FOR THE BEST CANDIDATE YOU CAN FIND. NOT SOMEBODY INTERNAL ALTHOUGH TOM PRINCE AND BANNISTER BOTH WOULD LIKE THE JOB. BUT, GO AHEAD. NO, I, I, I AGREE WITH YOU. TO KEEP THIS BECAUSE I FEEL IF EITHER ONE OF THOSE GUYS GET THEIR JOB YOU WILL HAVE A REALLY EMPTY STADIUM NEXT WEEK. IT IS INTERESTING YOU SAY THAT, FIGURE FOR THE CALL AS ALWAYS, ATTENDANCE WENT UP, SLIGHTLY OVER LAST YEAR BUT IT WENT UP BELIEVE IT OR NOT. STILL WAY DOWN FROM WHAT IT WAS A HIGH WATERMARK BACK IN 2015 OR 16 OR WHATEVER, 30,000 GAVE NOTICE DOWN TO 18. BUT IT DID GO UP TECHNICALLY. ALTHOUGH THE LAST MONTH THERE WAS NOBODY THERE, AND FANS ARE FRUSTRATED QUITE FRANKLY AND THEY SHOULD BE, WE WILL SEE, IF, YOU KNOW, WHAT THEY SHOULD WANT THE BEST QUALIFIED MAN, TAKES FINALLY DOZIER GET THEM, GO, BUT WHO’S GOING TO COME HERE? JOE MADDON DOES NOT, BECAUSE IT IS KNOWN TO DEAL WITH NOT BEING A HAVE, NOT A HAVE NOT, HE IS PRETTY MUCH SAYING THAT, SO MAYBE PHILADELPHIA OR SAN DIEGO OR ANAHEIM OR SOMEPLACE A BIT, MOST LIKELY GET SOMEBODY WHO IS YOUNG INEXPERIENCED AND WANTS AN OPPORTUNITY, BUT, BUYER BEWARE IF YOU TAKE THE JOB, KNOW THAT YOU MAY NOT THE SUPPORT YOU WANT IT COMES TO AGAIN, SPENDING ON PAYROLL AND WE WILL SEE WHAT ELSE, LET’S GO OUT TO JOE IN PENN HILLS, WHAT IS UP? ARE YOU? IT, ARE YOU DOING? BUT GOOD THINGS. I HEARD YOU GUYS IN THE RADIO TV STATION START SAYING IT LIKE IT IS LIKE THE COACH TODAY, ALWAYS IT IS BUSINESS AS USUAL. DID I SAY IT? I MEAN HUNTINGTON. WE HAVE NOTHING WE ARE STUCK. YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE NEW PHILOSOPHY WHICH WILL BE THE SAME, HE WILL GET A MANAGER, YES MA’AM, YES, YES, EVERYBODY WILL BE DOWN THE LINE AND IT IS NO USE OF FRUSTRATING IS, I THINK WE ARE STUPID NUTTING AND HUNTINGTON, THEY DO NOT DESERVE TO BE HERE ANYMORE THAN MAYBE HURDLE, HURDLE IS THE FALL GUY AND HUNTINGTON MISSES ALL OF HIS ORGANIZATION, HIS SCOUTS, HIS DEVELOPMENT. — APPARENTLY THEY DID IT THE BEST THEY LIKE THE WAY WE DO IT AND WE BELIEVE — DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT. IT DOES A GREAT ONE FRANKLY, HE TOLD THERE WILL BE A MOVE, I THOUGHT WOULD INCLUDE BOTH. IT HAS TO BE IT WOULD JUST BE THE SAME, YOU KNOW THAT. NEXT YEAR WILL BE NO DIFFERENT AND I AM SORRY. I WATCH THE GAMES, WE SCORE SOMETIMES AND NOT CARE, THAT IS A MIRACLE HAPPENED, BUT THIS IS SAID. THAT HUNTINGTON IS STILL HERE, NOTHING AGAINST A MAN, THE FEMININE. NO, HE’S REALLY GOOD PERSON. IT IS ALL RIGHT. BUT IS JUST ABOUT PERFORMANCE, UNFORTUNATELY FOR THEM, AS A RESULT DRIVEN INDUSTRY, MORE SO THAN MOST. IF YOU DON’T GET IT, THEN YOU SHOULD PAY THE PRICE. FIGURE FOR THE CALL, HERE IS THE THING, CHICAGO FOR EXAMPLE, THEY LET JOE MADDON GO, WHAT IS JOE MADDON DONE FIVE YEARS? HE WON THE FIRST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 100 YEARS, HE WENT TO FOUR CLASS OF FIVE YEARS THIS WAS THE ONLY YOUR IT DID NOT HAPPEN AND HE IS GONE, IT IS WHAT YOU EXPECT. IF YOUR EXPECTATIONS ARE JUST MODEST TO GET MODEST IN RETURN, ARE YOU? I THINK YOU VERY MUCH, A DEVOTED FAN MORE THAN 50 YEARS, MY FORECAST IS AS FOLLOWS, CLINT HURDLE GOES TO KANSAS CITY, WHERE HE STARTED, NOTING HAS A CONTRACT AND JEFF BECOMES THE NEW MANAGER OF THE LOWER SALARY SAVING MONEY RIGHT THERE DESPITE THE LAST FINISH THEY SAID THE PIRATES CAME ATTENDANCE WAS ONLY A FEW HUNDRED FANS BELOW LAST YEAR, $20 MILLION LESS IN PAYROLL, MONEY SAVE, $24 MILLION, THE PAYROLL AND THIS YEAR, MONEY SAVE, NEXT YEAR THOUGH, YANKEES AND SOX COMING IN, FIVE GUARANTEED SET OF, MONEY MADE. THE MAN IS NO PRESSURE TO DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY THAN WHAT HE DID IN THE PAST BECAUSE THE FOCUS IS ON THE FUTURE OF THE MARLINS. AND THE PAY RAISE LOOKING TO REPLACE THE MOVE ON MONTRIAL. BOB, YOU ARE FROM CLEARFIELD, YOU MADE IT VERY CLEAR. FIGURE FOR THAT I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE THAT SENTIMENT AS WELL. A SMART BUSINESSMAN, YOU KNOW THAT GOING IN. HE HAS A RIGHT TO MAKE MONEY, HE OWNS THE TEAM, AGAIN THIS IS A DIFFERENT THING THIS IS A PUBLIC TRUST KIND OF RELATIONSHIP WHERE HE HAS TO DO MORE THAN HE HAS DONE AND SO FAR THAT HASN’T HAPPENED, THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, THAT IS WHERE WE ARE WITH THIS, LET’S GO TO JOHN AND HOW ARE YOU? WHAT ARE YOU DOING? ARE YOU DOING? ARE YOU DOING? WHAT IS IT? HOW ABOUT THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES MAN? UM, I LOVE THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES. BUT I SEE THE SEASON COMING TO AN END AND I HATE TO SEE THEM LEAVE THE TEAM. I’M HAPPY HE IS LEAVING. YOU KNOW JOHN THAT WAS THE WEATHER THAT BOTHERED ME TODAY AS IT TOOK AWAY FROM STEVE BLAST TO WE SPENT MOST OF THE TIME GOING OVER GETTING A REACTION TO CLINT HURDLE AND THE WAY IT HAPPENED AND IT IS A SHAME, WAS SUPPOSED TO BE STEVE BLAST DAY, IF I TALKED TO WANT TO TALK TO 100 PEOPLE WHO WATCH THE GAME WHERE AS A SEASON TICKET HOLDERS THAT WERE DISTURBED BY THE WAY THAT HAPPENED, IT HAD NOT HAVE HAPPENED THIS WAY REALLY SHOULD NOT HAVE, A DIFFERENT TO BOTH HURDLE I THINK BUT ALSO MORE IMPORTANTLY THIS DAY, STEVE LAST. THAT’S THE WAY IT WENT DOWN AND THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT, LINE 5, DAVE, WHAT IS UP? HELLO BOB, I HAVE TO ADMIT, THERE IS A PIRATE FAN FOR MANY, MANY, MANY YEARS, I AM VERY HAPPY HURDLE IS GONE. BUT I DISAGREE WITH THE DECISION, SO THEY TIMES OVER THAT WHEN YOU CLEAN HOUSE, YOU CLEAN HOUSE. AND YOU DO NOT LEAVE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE JOB. BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY POSSIBLE THAT THE NEW GUY CAN DO ANYTHING AS LONG AS EVERYTHING IS IN PLACE. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT’S, THEY JUST PUT ON HURDLE LET EVERYTHING ELSE RIDE, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE RESPECT I DO NOT EITHER QUITE FRANKLY IF YOU MAKE THE DECISION MAKING FOR ALL AND START OVER, IF THAT IS THE WAY YOU HAVE TO DO IT BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT THE PIRATES ARE TRYING OUT ESPECIALLY GOING BACK TO PITCHING BACK MY MAIN CONCERN ABOUT THEM. THE BULLPEN WAS FILLED WITH GUYS LIKE McRAE AND HARTLEY WHO MADE 30+ APPEARANCES. CLAY HOLMES AND ROOKIE DAVIS AND ON AND ON AND ON. THAT IS IT. THAT IS ALL THEY GOT OTHER. THEY NEED MORE PEOPLE NEED MORE INFUSION OF TALENT AND THEY HAVE NOT DONE A DECENT ENOUGH JOB FOR THAT. LET’S SEE, WHY DO WE, WE ARE DUE FOR A BREAK, WE HAVE JOHN, MARY, ANDY, I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE, WE WILL TRY TO GET THOSE CALLS, STICK AROUND TO
