Silver linings, offseason excitement, mattress man madness and Twitter fingers… let’s recap the 2022 Pittsburgh Pirates

That would be an accurate way to describe episode 91 of Rum Bunter Radio as the crew welcomes staff writer and social media aficionado Kody Duncan to the show for the first time.

Is it finally over? A question many Pittsburgh Pirates fans had to ask throughout the 2022 season, a question that can thankfully be answered “yes” as the calendar year begins to wind down.

What did we learn? The 2022 Pittsburgh Pirates were a steaming pile of you know what; that was obvious before the first pitch was even thrown. What did we really learn?

Throughout this episode of Rum Bunter Radio the crew highlights parts of the team and season: their highs, lows and shed light on questions that are still to be answered.

One thing you can never have enough of is AA batteries. But aside from that IT’S PITCHING! For Ben Cherrington this has been part of the plan, or at least that is what we can assume. Although much of what got Pittsburgh buzzing this year was a non Ben Cherrington pitcher, a guy we thought might be a non pitcher in general, Mitch Keller.

With the comeback year out of King Keller, and other arms emerging within the big league staff, Pirates arms are a positive takeaway at the very least.

As the episode continues, the guys highlight other areas of need and interest as the crew looks ahead to the offseason that is now underway.

While the Pittsburgh Pirates may not represent the state of Pennsylvania in this year’s Fall Classic, the Phillies have decided to take that honor. Marty and Kody share their thoughts on this year’s World Series and why it could be telling in more ways than one about the future of baseball.

To close out the episode the crew recaps the Pittsburgh Pirates year in the minor leagues, and look ahead to several guys that could get their chance early next season at the big league level.
