    Not All Pirates Problems Are Bad

    Not All Pirates Problems Are Bad

    Matt Capps joins us to express concerns about David Bednar’s use, and he has the life-experience to speak on it. He also talks about what he sees lately from Mitch Keller. Is this the breakthrough? Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also joins us to figure out what happens to young call-ups on the roster when players start returning from the IL. A roster crunch is coming.

    Watch The Pirates, Kid

    Watch The Pirates, Kid

    Oneil Cruz is finally here and he can throw baseballs faster than the average ballplayer and leap buildings in a single bound. While all of that hype is fun, Pittsburgh Pirates fans should expect ups-and-downs with the young SS, but also enjoy a lineup that we only imagined a year ago. Craig also insists that he’s told everyone about Bligh Madris repeatedly over the years, but we make him tell us about the young outfielder again.

    Pirates A Little Light On Pitchers

    Pirates A Little Light On Pitchers

    A load of recent Pittsburgh Pirates transactions exposed a 40-man roster crunch when it comes to pitching. But what may be a problem in the short term had good long-term intentions behind it. Fans may soon see guys going longer with less stuff on the mound. Plus, Bryan Reynolds is good again and it proves a point made on this show months ago.

    Pirates Winning More Than Expected

    Pirates Winning More Than Expected

    We think an infield is coming together, with an unlikely fit at 1B. The team that picked up Cole Tucker should tell fans that other teams operate similarly to the Pirates. And Craig explains that his frustration with Ben Cherington is because he makes the same mistakes.

    Finding Future Pirates Down On The Farm

    Spenser Smith brings play-by-play magic to Bradenton Marauders broadcasts, and is the perfect expert to bring in for a look down on the farm. We’re talking about the prospects you know, the ones you don’t know and how it takes more than a quick look at the stat sheets to evaluate progress in the minors. Let’s take a glance at the future of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    Hey Pirates, Let The Kids Play!

    The guys would like to see some of the young prospects get some playing time at the MLB level, and Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette agrees. Listen as he identifies one of the biggest frustrations for Pirates fans. We’re also looking for positives in the rotation, while celebrating six Pirates prospects moving up the rankings on the MLB Pipeline Top 100 List. (Now if only we could get them to Pittsburgh.)
