Podcast Episode 8: The Manager – Clint Hurdle

Are you tired of seeing this yet?

Are you tired of seeing this yet?

The RumBunter Podcast had the pleasure of speaking with the National League Manager of the Year, Clint Hurdle.  The Bucs skipper answers the question on the minds of most Pirates fans–has he talked to A.J. Burnett ?

The interview also spends some time on how Gregory Polanco is doing in the Dominican Winter League.  But more importantly, Hurdle talks about what the Pirates, fresh from re-bonding the city of Pittsburgh to baseball, can do to regain a stranglehold on the Dominican, which was at one time a hotbed for Buccos talent.


The last time Hurdle was on the show was a little over a year ago.  The link for that show is available here. 

Let us know if you sense a different tone – thirteen months ago Hurdle had a lot more of explaining to do.

Both interviews are typical “no-B.S.”   Hurdle handles everything in the same manner – straight forward and full steam ahead.

And as far as the contest goes, here’s what you’re in the running for…

    I dont miss the reminders of Doumit, lee, ludwick and Nady as regular players… But this was a good look back to see just how significant this year was and how great the current outfield is.
