Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington

The PM Team w/Poni & Mueller
Wednesday, August 1st
Pirates GM Neal Huntington joins us live on-set to talk about his busy trade deadline day.  Huntington admitted that they gave up a lot in their trades but he feels like they got even more in return.  When it comes to Archer, Huntington cites his recent numbers being lower than his career averages but says they see reasons to believe he'll pitch like his old self here.  As for making the moves, Huntington told us that Bob Nutting was involved in the process, which is normal, and that he encouraged them to make a big move if they felt like there was a good move to make.  Neal also addressed Keone Kela not being here yet and taking his fully allotted 72 hours to show up.  We also tried to get clues from Neal on who the PTBNL could be in the Archer deal and which prospects opposing GM's asked about the most.
