Tom Bragg and James Santelli (that’s me!) from Pirates Prospects were joined by fellow Pirates writers Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. Eastern to discuss the state of the team. It was the first of what we’re calling “Pirates Roundtable,” a live videocast with Bucs writers like:

It was be a great discussion of Pittsburgh’s fantastic start to the 2013 season, the strengths and weaknesses of the team and how to improve them, the job done by manager Clint Hurdle plus any other Pirates topics that come up. We also took Twitter questions from the audience using the hashtag #PiratesRoundtable on Twitter. That’s right. I made a hashtag.

So join us live (hopefully) every week and put faces to the names of the writers whom you enjoy reading and also me, whom you likely do not. The link and the embedded video are posted below and the broadcast will be available to re-watch anytime.

    Matt Krook, the guy the Marlins took with the pick acquired in the Gaby Sanchez trade, has decided to go to college. I could easily see the Pirates having drafted him with that pick if they had kept it.

      Do they get a comp pick next year for him not signing? If not, they were dumb for taking somebody that had signability issues. Hopefully the Buccos wouldn’t have done that.
