We trust you enjoyed the last episode – but we’re aiming even higher this week!
TWO guests AND a contest? HOLY
This week, we’re joined by Pirates’ Bench Coach and FoTP Jeff Banister, who gives us the info on Travis Snider’s health, the beautiful way he fills out the lineup card, the wonder that is Starling Marte, and how the decisions are made regarding the Pirates’ bullpen use. Trust us when we say that you’ll be very, very surprised!
Also joining us is FoTP Josh Poytress, released earlier by the Pirates organization. JP tells us what that’s like, and what happens during – and, more importantly, after – that happens. He also gives us some info on his new ballclub, The Sioux City Explorers (where he pitched a 1-2-3 inning, 8 pitches – including 7 for strikes! – with 2 K in his first exhibition appearance last night).
We’d also like to announce that The Rumbunter Podcast is now available on iTunes! Make sure you subscribe to the version that has the same logo as the one you see above, and enjoy the podcast automatically! Click on the “Available on iTunes” logo at the right, and it’ll take you right there!
Lastly, we announce your opportunity to win an actual ZOLTAN bubble-wrap costume (courtesy of 80sTees) in our I WANT MY ZOLTAN!! twitter contest !! Now, you can be the envy of every other Pirate fan at PNC Park, capture the attention of the ROOT SPORTS TV cameras, and have a popping good time in this outfit inspired by the Pirates’ ZOLTAN campaign!
