Pittsburgh Pirates Wake Up Call – Cannonballs coming

In our daily Wake-Up Call, we get you ready for the day with a complete look at all things Pittsburgh Pirates.

As the Pittsburgh Pirates drudge through the final month of the 2017 regular season, Pirates Breakdown keeps things lively with the latest episode of CANNONBALLS.

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.

Cannonballs is back and this time we are rekindling the show’s ultimate rivalry as our three-time defending champion, Alex Stumpf takes on his rival, Jarrod Prugar. The two butt heads on Gerrit Cole, Tyler Glasnow and the upcoming direction of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Things get heated as the Pirates Countdown cohosts remind everyone why they work as opponents.

Here’s the latest episode:
