Smoke Signals with Matt McBride....tonight!
Tonight, Paul and I plan to talk about the AL Central, what the competition has done to improve this offseason, and the Indians chances are of winning the division this year. Also, top catching prospect Matt McBride will join the show in the second half for our usual weekly on-air interview with an Indians prospect. We'll talk about his lost 2008 season in his return from labrum surgery and what is in the cards for 2009, and also talk about the recent developments of him moving to the outfield at least on a temporary basis.
We'd really love some phone calls tonight given the limited topics for discussion! The phone number to call is 646-716-8012 and feel free to call in and talk about anything Indians related or provide any comments or feedback on the show. If you don't want to call in, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a question you would like to see answered on the show. Or, feel free to provide ideas for future shows or general feedback on the show.
Next week, right-hander Vinnie Pestano will be on (Feb 5th) and after that outfielder Nick Weglarz will be on Feb 19th. Weglarz had to be moved back again a week, but this should be pretty firm this time. As to who fills the Feb 12th open slot, there are a ton of possibilities and will relay who will come on that night soon.
