Pittsburgh Pirates fans are no strangers to debate. It makes perfect sense, then, that PBD introduces its new debate show on PBD Radio.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are a very polarizing club.

Some of the ensuing debate circles around off-the-field issues – rightfully so – and still some swirls around the actual action we see for 162-plus games every season.

It is only fitting, then, that Pirates Breakdown brings you the latest episode of CANNONBALLS, our unique weekly Pittsburgh Pirates debate show. You will NOT find hot takes here, but rather an intelligent, informed debate among our staff writers and special guests.

This episode AGAIN features Josh Taylor, host of Bucco Talk on 93.7 The Fan and PBD contributor. Josh is a two-time defending champion and faces off against PBD staff writer Ethan Obstarczyk.

The two debate the fall of Alen Hanson, Adam Frazier‘s recent struggles and have lots of talk about Andrew McCutchen‘s naval. Will we see a new champion or is this a birth of a dynasty?

Enough talk. Here’s the episode:
