Definitely has the ability to be one of those leaders both on an off the field. The fact that he hasn't even come close to his full potential, should make other team's defenses worry.

NEW #Duquesne basketball column -- at A.J. Palumbo Center, Pittsburgh
DEJAN KOVACEVIC, DK ON PITTSBURGH SPORTS No sooner had the basketball been launched from Derrick Colter’s fingertips than his arm was hacked hard by Bluefield State’s Avery Holliday. Hard enough that Duquesne’s gifted junior guard fell back onto the A.J. Palumbo Center court and was completely horizontal by the time that ball hit nothing but twine. Even with the rest of his body prone, Colter’s arms shot up, raised in triumph. Did he see the 3-po...

NEW Friday Insider on DKonPittsburghSports.com w/ stuff on +Pittsburgh Steelers +Pittsburgh Penguins +Pittsburgh Pirates and more!
DEJAN KOVACEVIC, DK ON PITTSBURGH SPORTS A weekly feature rounding up a lot of randomness from a lot of time around our city’s teams … • Had a fascinating conversation this week about Dan Bylsma’s final couple of years behind the Penguins’ bench, and it shed light on something I hadn’t previously understood: Why, if the people over his head were displeased with his system, did it never change? The answer, according to one individual eminently in ...

NEW News/views entry on +Pittsburgh Pirates losing Russell Martin -- at Nashville, Tenn.
DEJAN KOVACEVIC, DK ON PITTSBURGH SPORTS NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Russell Martin has agreed to terms with the Blue Jays on a five-year, $82 million contract, according to multiple reports, including the original with Peter Gammons. Views: My God. Just a day earlier, some of the same highly reliable national outlets were reporting that the Cubs were close with a four-year, $64 million proposal. But very, very clearly, Toronto made a conscious decision t...

+Ed Vidra Yeah they definitely should have overpaid for a soon to be 32 year old catcher coming off of a career year. Fiscal irresponsibility is exactly what World Series Championships are made of!

NEW +Pittsburgh Pirates column
DEJAN KOVACEVIC, DK ON PITTSBURGH SPORTS “I want to win a ring, and I want to win it with Pittsburgh.” See, that used to be a real hoot around here, spouting stuff like that. Because the ‘ring’ in this statement is a World Series ring. And ‘Pittsburgh’ points to the Pirates, the franchise that was Major League Baseball’s perpetual laughingstock. At least until A.J. Burnett arrived in 2012. Which is precisely why it isn’t funny anymore. Especially...

NEW +Pittsburgh Pirates column
The Pittsburgh Pirates probably won't keep Russell Martin because of money, but don't dare mention a salary cap for Major League Baseball.
