A Brief Weekend Update
That said, I wanted to pass along two news items. First, in addition to this blog and writing on TheClevelandFan.com as I always have and will continue to do, it looks like I will also be doing some writing for MLN Sports Zone which is a monthyl minor league magazine dedicated to the minors (www.minorleaguenews.com). There is also a possibility I may start doing some freelance work for other minor league publications, so we will see.
Also, the Indians cable network SportsTime Ohio has some cool things in store as far as minor league coverage goes in 2008. On the show "All Bets Are Off with Bruce Drennan", there will be segments dedicated every Tuesday and Friday on minor league coverage. They will have representatives for each team in studio or on the phone to talk about their team and what is happening with the players, as well as player personnel people like Farm Director Ross Atikins once a month. Here is the propose schedule of appearances on "All Bets Are Off" in April:
Friday April 4th: Kinston manager Chris Tremie
Tuesday April 8th: Lake County manager Aaron Holbert and Play-By-Play voice/Media Relations Director Craig Deas (both will be in studio)
Friday April 11th: Akron manager Mike Sarbaugh
Tuesday April 15th: Buffalo manager Torey Luvullo
Friday April 18th: Lake County manager Aaron Holbert
Tuesday April 22nd: Kinston manager Chris Tremie
Friday April 25th: Buffalo manager Torey Luvullo
Tuesday April 29th: Akron manager Mike Sarbaugh
It should be noted that the schedule is subject to change, and also that Ross Atkins has not committed to a date yet, but should appear on one show sometime in April. So, as you can see, if you want some more minor league news, you should be able to catch it every Tuesday and Friday on "All Bets Are Off with Bruce Drennan". Big props to STO for this addition.
