Smoke Signals 7/1: Jared Goedert and More
We'll recap some of the recent roster moves such as the decision to look externally for a utility player instead of promoting from within, give our thoughts on the Indians (finally) committing themselves to using Matt LaPorta full time, take a look back on the Russell Branyan trade and how that came about as well as give some firsthand info on anything else that may be in the works on the trade front, and lots more.
We also will be airing an interview I did with Triple-A Columbus third baseman Jared Goedert in the second half of the show. The interview is about eight minutes long and took place last weekend while I was in Columbus to check out how Goedert and several other players there are doing at the midpoint of the season. Goedert talks about finally being healthy and what that has done for him this year from a confidence and consistency standpoint, the injury struggles the past few years, and what his goals are going forward.
