Smoke Signals 7/10: All Star break edition
Smoke Signals is back on the cyberwaves today at a special time from 9:00am – 10:00am EST. The one hour show is hosted by Tony Lastoria and Jim Pete and airs every Tuesday. 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.
Today we will briefly discuss the last homestand, Sunday’s punch in the gut loss, and the importance of a good start in the second half. Beyond that, Jim and I will spend most of our time doing a first half review where we discuss the good and bad from the first half of the season, provide our first half MVPs, top pitchers, biggest surprises, biggest disappointments and more. We will also talk about some guys in the minors that could be up in the second half and if the Indians have a realistic shot of making the playoffs. Time permitting, we also plan to talk about the top performers at each level of the Indians farm system in the first half.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about anything on your mind. Thanks again for listening!
