PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — Andrew FillipponiĀ and Tim Neverett continued the Pirates Primer broadcast and were joined by new Pirates catcher Russell Martin who is pleased to learn about the team acquiring veteran third baseman Brandon Inge.

Martin remembers back to when he and two Yankees teammates hit grandslams in the same game.

During the interview, Martin preferred to talk about wins instead of personal stats andĀ is trying to help the umpires be as accurate as possible.

Martin also says he would like to play shortstop for team Canada in the World Baseball Classic.

AJ Burnett also looked good in his first session on the mound today.
