Appearing on MLB Network’s Intentional Talk and during the Fox Game of the Week broadcasts, Norris has established the fact that he can be a great interview. He’s outgoing and witty and has a great smile. But non-video interviews haven’t gone as well for Bud. Some of his quotes about a possible trade to the Giants were scrutinized by certain reporters. This is an area where Bud has some room for improvement, and like he has done with his pitching, I think he’s up to the task.
