Tonight I am back on the cyberwaves with another edition of "Smoke Signals" from 9:30-10:30 PM EST. I say "I" because my partner in crime Paul Cousineau is on his way to Milwaukee for the weekend and will not be able to co-host tonight. But as they always say the show must go on, and at the moment I am planning on still doing the show so long as I can find another co-host for the night which may...

Holt Being Thrown Right Into The Fire
Talk about being thrown out of the frying pan and into the fire.
Outfielder and 2010 10th round draft pick Tyler Holt was signed to a $500,000 bonus on Saturday early afternoon and then later that night immediately made his professional debut with Low-A Lake County going 1-for-4 with a triple in the contest. The fact he made his debut in Lake County and not at short-season Single-A Mahoning...

Around the Farm: August 15
Connor Graham – RP, Akron: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 K.

Entering week 19, Kinston felt the wrath of the Lynchburg Hillcats. For those counting at home, the Hillcats are the last place team in the Northern Division of the Carolina league. Obviously, someone forgot to tell the Hillcats, as they took three of four from the K-Tribe, and seemingly put to rest any chance of a playoff appearance for the Indians. When you lose to arguable the worst team in the...
