Pirates Prospects on The Minor League Report Podcast

Last night I was a guest on The Minor League Report, a podcast which covers minor league baseball. Mike Passanisi, who is the Director of Communications and the broadcaster for the Altoona Curve, runs the podcast with three other minor league broadcasters — Jay Burnham (Richmond Flying Squirrels), Eric Little (Augusta GreenJackets), and Sam Sigal (Hickory Crawdads). The podcast can be followed on Twitter at @mlrpodcast.

The podcast can be found here. We went beyond Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon, discussing some of the other prospects in the system such as Luis Heredia, Josh Bell, Alen Hanson, Gregory Polanco, and Vic Black. We also discussed the Mark Appel situation, and whether this year was a make or break season for the current management group.
