Podcast Episode 4.1- The Pittsburgh Kid: NFW

Pirates second baseman Neil Walker joined us on the Rumbunter podcast

Pirates second baseman Neil Walker was on the Rumbunter podcast this week

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.

    All I can say is that was annoying. I came here to hear Neil Walker and these other clowns showed up. Come on guys, no one wants to hear your Jr high antics. You have a quality player and a quality person on the show and you act like fools. I couldn’t even finish it you were so annoying. Thanks but no thanks. This was my first and last podcast with you clowns.

      Thank you for your honest critique.We appreciate that our podcast is not to everyone’s taste.

      Perhaps if you fast-forward through it, you’ll get what you came after. We’ve had Neil on about 4 times, and we’ve always gotten great info from him, as well as Neal Huntington, Clint Hurdle, Tony Sanchez, Jeff Banister, Frank Coonelly.

      Sorry to see you go, but we’ll keep on keepin’ on as the longest-running and highest-rated Pirates Podcast.

      We appreciate everyone’s honest critiques – certainly our brand of humour isn’t for everyone. Someone listening in for the first time might not get it. I understand that. At least he didn’t get personal and insulting, y’know?

      C’est la vie…
