Here is a quick rundown of the happenings in the week that was in the Indians farm system:

- By now, everyone should know that the Indians have acquired infielder Mark DeRosa from the Cubs for minor league pitchers Jeff Stevens, Chris Archer, and John Gaub. For more info on the deal and very detailed scouting reports of the players the Indians sent out, check out
my writeup a few days ago when the deal went down.

- Speaking of the players given up in the DeRosa trade, all three will be on my radio show Smoke Signals this coming
Thursday January 8th, 2009 from 9:30-11:00 p.m. EST. I talked to Archer and Gaub on Friday, and both are in good spirits after the trade and ready to move on and agreed to come on the show to talk about the trade and the change in direction their careers have taken. I am still awaiting confirmation from Stevens to come on the show, but he should be good to go.

- Our last edition of Smoke Signals which aired between Christmas and New Year
