Thanks to the efforts of Brian Warecki (Sr. Director of Communications for the Pirates) and Tom Smith from Rumbunter, some of the main blogs and online magazines were able to interview some Pirate players and front office people on Friday night at Piratefest.
Joining Matt Bandi and I were Charlie and Vlad from Bucs Dugout, Tom from Rumbunter, Jon from The McEffect, and Brian from...
