First Pitch: Pittsburgh Baseball Now Podcast Appearance

I was on the Pittsburgh Baseball Now podcast this week with Cody Potanko and Anthony Murphy. The episode was recorded Wednesday night, released yesterday, and you can find all of the links to download it below:

We discussed some prospects, some MLB players, and what got us into writing about the Pirates.

Today’s comments are for open discussion on this week’s busy events, including the Yoshi Tsutsugo signing (I’ll have some thoughts on that, though they’ll probably be similar to my recent article on the first base position), the Wander Franco extension with the Rays, and the new Pirates hitting coach.

Reminder: The 2022 Guide and John Dreker’s first history book are both for pre-sale at the PBN Shop.
