Subject: Biertempfel out at TTM?

Ears to the ground inside the Clark Building saying Biertempfel soon to be out on the Pirate beat and Travis Sawchick in. I can't say I'm exactly shocked since Rob has been on the beat for about a hundred years and still hasn't done a worthwhile thing in his career. However I guess I am always surprised that anyone at TTM has the stones to do anything to make their product better. Good luck Travis! You da man!

Sawchik is already in. Has been for a couple years now. He and Biertempfel are both on it. I think Andrew Erickson fills in occasionally, too.

I think the salient point would be that -- if the post is accurate -- Biertempfel would NOT be covering baseball after spending a long time on the beat.

Yeah this is it. I heard the same. He's out. I don't think he's fired but it's Travis's beat now.

If true it could be interesting. Clint Hurdle can't stand Sawchik.

BTW I also hear that Brink has told the P-G this will be his last year on the baseball beat.

Yeah but Sawchick at least comes up with original material that gets people talking and Bierrtempfl hasn't done that since nineteen-o-never. I'm sure that's what's happening or at least what the editors are thinking. I think it's the right move and it probably should've been made a long time ago.

Clint Hurdle doesn't like Sawchik??? Patently FALSE!

Tell yourself what you want. From what I heard the skipper has been surly all year long. Why would Sawchick be an exception?

I couldn't help but notice that the Tribune wasn't at the all star game is San Diego and the P-G was. Does Biertempfel being off the beat have anything to do with this? Maybe the plane ticket was in his name? Or is the Tribune no longer "part of the team"? Inquiring minds!!

If you are paying attention, you will see see that Biertempfel is not off the pirates beat. The Trib still enjoys its exclusive partnership with the Pirates as well. In your haste to to garner some attention, you overlooked these two facts that are easily researched.

Yeah ya know, come to think of it, you're right. It's better to not cover something than to cover it. Where do I subscribe?!!

He's not off the beat. He's still covering the Pirates.
The plane ticket scenario is simply bizarre.
Maybe The Trib wisely decided that it wasn't a good use of resources and money to go to the All-Star Game, when the Pirates didn't have a dominating presence.
There was nothing there that The Trib could have provided that I didn't get anywhere else.
The P-G coverage didn't blow me away. They used Getty Images, didn't send a photographer.
And, ironically, Gene Collier wrote a column about how the All-Star game, essentially, sucks and needs a revamp.
So, no, I don't think The Trib missed much by not sending someone.

Sending someone to the ASG was a waste of money, especially with it being across the country. I don't see the point in wasting resources, especially if you're a newspaper.

No idea who he is but it sure sounds like they'll all be out soon enough. Why pick out just one guy nobody ever heard of.
