Are there any new candidates for the Pittsburgh Pirates to select with the number one overall pick in next month’s MLB Draft?

The crew is back together for this week’s episode of Rum Bunter Radio! Throughout the show the guys take a look back at the previous week in Pittsburgh Pirates baseball, and talk about the major headlines surrounding the team.

Does Tyler Anderson‘s shaky start in DC have a large impact on his overall trade value? Marty and Nick talk about the history of trades that include players like Anderson, and why one inning likely isn’t the peril of any potential trades.

After being sent down to Triple-A, Indianapolis, Mitch Keller finds himself in a sticky situation following an inconsistent start to the 2021 season. Is this year the final time we will be watching Keller in a Pirate uniform? It very well could be and the crew explains what has to happen for Mitch to keep his chance in Pittsburgh.

The future is looking very bright for the Pittsburgh Pirates after nearly two years worth of trades made by general manager Ben Cherington. The guys project a potential rotation of the future, and discuss who will get up the fastest and why. Will Quinn Priester get his shot in the near future? Or will the team try other names that have come onto the scene in the past year?

Colin Moran has looked like the power hitting first baseman the Pirates desire…when he’s healthy. After a second quick stint on the IL fans are wondering what to make of Colin Moran’s injury status.

The crew forecasts how long this injury will take to recover from, and what the Pirates will do in his absence.

To close out the show the trio holds their second mock draft of 2021, taking you through the first three rounds, and who they believe the Pirates will be selecting.
