Smoke Signals 5/15: Slumping starters edition
Smoke Signals is back on the cyberwaves tonight from 10:00 – 11:00PM EST. The one hour show is hosted by Tony Lastoria and Jim Pete and airs every Tuesday night at this time. With Smoke Signals back to its normal one hour format it allows us much more time to talk about several topics surrounding the team, talk about the recently completed game that night, and have guests on quite regularly.
We will have Low-A Lake County outfielder Bryson Myles on for an on-air live interview in the second half of the show, probably sometime around 10:35 PM.
On tonight’s show we are going to talk about the mess at the top of the Indians rotation that is their #1 and #2 starters Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez. Is there light at the end of the tunnel with either one, when will they turn it around (can they?), and how long can the Indians continue to get by with their subpar performance? We will also talk about some of the recent roster moves to replace Dan Wheeler in the bullpen with Jeremy Accardo, and Jason Donald on the bench with Jose Lopez. We will also get into Jeamar Gomez and Derek Lowe as they have saved the Indians while Masterson and Jimenez have struggled.
For those that are subscribed to the Smoke Signals feed through iTunes, you will also now be getting a new show included in that feed. Every Sunday “The Inside Pitch” runs for a half hour from 7:00-7:30PM EST and is hosted by IPI site contributors Jeff Ellis and Andrew Zajac. The show will have a strong focus on fantasy baseball, but will also cover other topics surrounding MLB and the Indians from time to time.
Feel free to call us at 1-347-202-0338 or email us at email@example.com to talk about anything on your mind. Thanks again for listening!
