I had my weekly radio interview with David Todd this afternoon on 970 ESPN in Pittsburgh. We started off talking about the Pirates, their 18-22 slow start, how that might have been changed if Andrew McCutchen was playing better, and whether they will be better going forward. From there, we discussed a few key prospects, including Alen Hanson, Deibinson Romero, Josh Bell, Keon Broxton, and Austin Meadows. The interview can be streamed below.

      • But, you also see him as a trade chip. Given Walker’s age and contract, the Pirates will need a second baseman. Kang and Moroff, on the other hand, were not considered trade chips.

        • Obviously Kang isn’t a trade chip because he’s in the majors helping the team. I mentioned Hanson as a trade chip because he’s the top prospect and they have a lot of options.

          I’ve got a limited time to answer those questions. This one is complex. I tried to go through the scenarios in as little time as I had. Maybe I’ll expand on the topic this weekend.

          For now, I said Hanson is a guy who could start, be a top of the order hitter, and would have value to other teams in a trade.
