MLB Network Analyst and former Philadelphia Phillies closer Mitch Williams called into “The Cook and Poni Show” on Thursday to discuss the Pirates’ chances after the loss of A.J. Burnett.
According to 93-7 The FAN’s Pirates pre- and post-game host Dan Zangrilli, Clint Hurdle has already named lefty Francisco Liriano the team’s Opening Day starter when they host the Chicago Cubs on Monday, March 31 at 1:05 p.m.
The montage looked back at the loss and how some of the guys in the clubhouse reacted to it after it was all said and done.
The season didn’t end the way the Pirates or their fans had hoped, but both are reflecting on the 2013 season.
On Wednesday morning, with Game 5 of the NLDS between the Pirates and Cardinals drawing near, The Fan Morning Show aired two highlight montages to get Bucs fans fired up for the game.
Pirates Broadcaster Greg Brown joined Starkey, Miller and Mueller for his weekly spot to preview Pirates-Cardinals Game 5 and what he makes of these young pitchers making major contributions like Gerrit Cole and Michael Wacha.
The other shoe dropped for A.J. Burnett on Friday afternoon. It was Gerrit Cole’s gigantic shoe, vehemently stomping out the possibility that Burnett should touch the baseball again in this best of five, National League Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Gerrit Cole and the Pittsburgh Pirates played like veterans.

Burnett, in an order yet to be determined, would get the nod to open the NLDS. But should rookie Gerrit Cole, instead of working from the bullpen, be given the chance to follow?
Gerrit Cole pitched seven strong innings and got home run help from Marlon Byrd and Jose Tabata, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Chicago Cubs 2-1 Saturday night.
Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage joined The Fan Morning Show on Friday to talk about the recent performance of his staff, and what he expects from his guys down the stretch.
