Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Neil Walker joined the RumBunter podcast to discuss all things 2014. Walker is already at Bradenton, doing some early preparing for the season. The Pittsburgh Kid talks about his improving glove work, all those defensive shifts the Bucs used in 2013, hitting gap-to-gap, and he also drops an A.J. Burnett bombshell!
The podcast is a bit lengthy as Walker talks for well over thirty minutes with Cocktails and Smitty. All the fun concludes with what might be his life’s work after his time in a Major League Baseball uniform is over. The Pine-Richland super athlete shows off his future MLB Network prowess by providing his opinion and analysis in the 2014 season regarding several Bucco teammates.
One of the best attributes about Walk is the fact that he never, ever pulls punches. Remember his famous line about “Huntington’s guys” back in the day? He says what he feels and it’s always honest, from the heart, and spot on topic.
Many thanks to Neil for joining us to kick off this year’s edition of the best podcast in Pittsburgh- The RumBunter Podcast, but most of all, we want to thank YOU listeners for helping make us a success. You’re why we do this damned thing in the first place!
