    Enjoyed the interview with Tony Sanchez and his down to earth responses to the good questions and the bad ones. Would have liked to know what he thinks of Russell Martin and if he helped Tony at all or just gave him the fuck you attitude that some vets give rookies. During your names segment or whenever, ask some of the players who on the Pirate team keeps things lose and spreads the humor in the club house, guess we can’s say A.J. even if he was. Every team seems to have a locker room leader and the guy everybody likes.
