Catching up with A.J. Burnett & Pirates Manager Derek Shelton
Jeff and Kevin concentrate on Yusei Kikuchi following his second consecutive successful Grapefruit League start. With Toronto facing Pittsburgh this afternoon, the guys call up Pirates Manager (and former Blue Jays coach) Derek Shelton to chat about why he and Orioles Manager Brandon Hyde decided to play a half-inning without umpires, and the veterans his club brought in this offseason including Carlos Santana, Rich Hill, and Andrew McCutchen (15:30). Later on, former Blue Jays and Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett catches up with the guys and reflects on his time in Toronto, being teammates with Barker, keeping things loose in Spring Training, and fitting-in with new organizations after being dealt (28:30)
