This week’s episode includes analysis from Tom Bragg and James Santelli on the Pirates, John Eshleman on Altoona, Tom Bragg on West Virginia, John Dreker on the draft, an interview with pitching prospect Robby Rowland, and more. Highlights of the show include:

**Minor League Recaps with a look at Gerrit Cole, Stolmy Pimentel, Casey Sadler, the weak Altoona offense, Gregory Polanco, Alen Hanson, Zack Dodson, Joely Rodriguez, and Barrett Barnes.

**John Dreker joins the show to discuss some of the draft prospects who could be in the Pirates’ range with their two first round picks.

With James and Tom:

**The eventual return of guys like Francisco Liriano and Charlie Morton, and what it means for the rotation.

**The hot start by the Pirates in April, which came against a strong schedule.

**The lack of sex…err, success against the Dodgers.

**The surprising performances on offense by guys not named Andrew McCutchen or Pedro Alvarez.

**Weird podcasting: Mascot races, whether they’re fixed, and wishing harm on Bernie the Brewer.

Player Interview

**This week’s player interview is with Robby Rowland. Robby and I discuss his transition to a sinkerball pitcher, how he used Charlie Morton as a model for his pitching, and we play “Top Five”, with Robby revealing that he hates vegetables and almost threw up once when he tried eating a salad.
