Rum Bunter Radio: Pittsburgh Pirates Season Recap Special
By Trey Yanity
Looking for your source to digest the 2020 Pittsburgh Pirates season? Rum Bunter Radio has you covered!
In this season recap special Marty, Nick and Trey welcome former Pittsburgh Pirates catcher and current member of the AT&T SportsNet broadcast team Michael McKenry.
The conversation began with a breakdown of Ben Cherington’s first season as general manager, as Michael describes the difference between the current regime and the one that exited after last season.
What is to make of Derek Shelton after year one? The crew dives in on his decision making throughout the season, and gives their insight on why certain calls were made the way they were.
As the episode continues, the conversation shifts to minor league talk and what to expect out of the future.
With a final record of 19-41, what needs to be addressed first? As shaky as the bullpen was at times this year, there was room to worry, but listen to find out why the bullpen comes well after another group of players that could never get things going.
How far away are the Pirates from contention? Maybe not quite as far as you may think. Michael details Pittsburgh’s plan to rebuild, and which players need to be added to help it go as quickly as possible.
Nobody is safe, but find out which players are secure and which players may never wear black and gold again.
To close out this RBR special the guys go around the table, and give their favorite memories from the 2020 Pittsburgh Pirates season, and what made them so special. (Hint: Some of them may contain Ke’Bryan Hayes.)
Relieve 2020, if you dare, with the Rum Bunter Radio crew as we answer key questions surrounding the upcoming offseason, and the futures of players like Gregory Polanco and Mitch Keller.
