Funny thing about Appel. I walking out of Home Depot today carry a patio umbrella like Christ did with the cross. I said to my dad, "You think Appel would condemn me to hell if I made a Jesus joke right now?". In the middle of the parking lot, my dad just starts howling and people were just staring at him. I got a kick out of it.

Pirates may lose a draft pick over $8,000

Looks like the Pirates might lose one of their players that they signed just before the deadline over $8,000.00. The story pretty much says it all, he might end up at UM afterall.

Honestly, Pirates ownership makes it so easy for me to make fun of them at times.


Skokie’s Kevin Ross having second thoughts about signing with Pirates

Rob Hart~Sun-Times Media


Updated: July 15, 2012 2:42PM

PITTSBURGH — Kevin Ross wanted the Pittsburgh Pirates to show him the money. He was underwhelmed by the display.

The Pirates, who selected Ross in the eighth round of the MLB draft in June, offered a signing bonus of $130,000 that fell short of the amount recommended for his slot.

Ross, a five-tool shortstop who starred for Niles West after transferring from Mather following his sophomore year, reluctantly agreed on Friday. But the Skokie resident is unhappy was having second thoughts on Saturday.

“I don’t want to call them cheap. Maybe they think I’m not a good enough player to be worth more than that,” said Ross, who wanted to go pro as soon as possible, but could wind up honoring his verbal commitment to play for University of Michigan. “Right now, I feel like I want to play college ball.”

Ross was scheduled to fly to Bradenton, Fla., on Monday to take a physical, formally sign his contract and start playing rookie ball for the Pirates. He’s doing some serious soul-searching over the weekend.

“He hasn’t signed anything yet. He wants the opportunity to play professionally, but not if he feels like his abilities aren’t being valued or appreciated,” said his father Gerald, his lifelong baseball mentor. “But this will be his decision. I’ll just tell him to do whatever he feels is best for him.”

Under its new and more stringent collective bargaining agreement, MLB instituted a cap on the amount each team could spend on its top 10 draft picks. Ross and many others felt the repercussions.

But Pittsburgh opted to get even stingier with Ross and his adviser, Jeff Borris of Beverly Hills Sports Council. The slot money corresponding to Ross’s draft position was $138,200. The Pirates held firm at $8,200 less.

“(Borriss) said he felt like he could get more money. But as things went on, then he was saying, ‘For some reason, they’re not budging,’ ”said Ross, who turns 19 on Sept. 17.

Max Starks signed a one year deal with the Steelers. Good signing to give the line more depth.

Starks on one leg is better than Jonathan Scott. That alone makes this move worth it.

Good to see Max back. There's no doubt that a hobbled Starks is still five times the lineman a healthy Jonathan Scott is.

I like it. It gives Adams more time to develop.

You are indeed correct.

I'm honestly not expecting a ton out of Mike Adams this season. I think some people are expecting WAY too much out of our rookie linemen.

I'm glad Starks is healthy and wanted to come back. I agree that Adams shouldn't be depended on to start this year. He'll need a year or two of learning behind a vet. DeCastro on the other hand will be a beast from Day 1

Apparently Joey Porter is retiring a Steeler. According to this, they are going to sign him to a contract to make it official.

http://blogs.nfl.com/2012/07/18/live...headline_stack

He's been pretty quiet since he left the Steelers, but he was one of my favorites growing up.

I was a Colorado State fan when Porter was there...needless to say I loved the guy...but he definitely got too loud at times.

Still nice to see him go out properly.

Yeah, I'd probably agree with this. Coming out of Stanford, everyone was calling him the "safest" pick in the draft. Hope he lives up to the hype. Adams needs some time to develop though in my opinion.

Yeah, didn't think so.

The sooner they get out of the Big Least the better. That conference was a joke even with WVU and Pitt in it.

Steelers are releasing T Jonathan Scott, who started five games last season. They signed T Max Starks earlier this week

Good stuff. I still remember him getting absolutely embarrassed by Dwight Freeney last season on Sunday Night Football.
