Tim Benz, Mark Madden discuss Jordan Lyles trade, Joe Haden contract
I’m moving this week.
So I took Monday off. Eventually, I emerged from a sea of boxes, cable wires, duffel bags and clothes I should’ve thrown away a long time ago to record Madden Monday.
Sorry it’s a day late.
Mark Madden and I caught up in his studio at WXDX-FM after his Monday night show. We talk about the Jordan Lyles trade and what else may be coming down the line for the Pirates before the trade deadline Wednesday.
We also talk tons of Steelers football, particularly about JuJu Smith-Schuster, and the silliness of overreaction to benign training camp details from Saint Vincent College.
Joe Haden’s contract situation is getting tense. The Benny Snell-James Conner dynamic could be interesting. Is Ola Adeniyi worth the hype? Or is he just a camp darling?
Plus, we tell you why 2021 may be the most interesting year in Pittsburgh sports history.
Also, gender reveals are stupid and so are head tattoos.
And, we get into the important topics of National Chicken Wing Day and that Showtime Roger Ailes show, “The Loudest Voice,” with Russell Crowe.
