How I Met Your Aeros: Preston Guilmet
In the 9th inning of a tight game at Canal Park, you very well might get to see Preston Guilmet and his unorthodox pitching style. Guilmet uses his unique straight over the top style to confuse hitters and it has worked very well this year. Jim Piascik talked with Guilmet recently about his pitching style, his approach, and whether he feels the pressure of being the closer.

Health and playing time help Weglarz get on track
Double-A Akron outfielder Nick Weglarz has battled the injury bug the past several seasons, and it eventually caught up to him last season and the start of this season as his offensive performance took a nosedive. But he has gotten stronger over the course of this season, remained healthy, and made a few adjustments with his swing that have resulted in much better play of late.

Now recovered from a shoulder that cost him the first half of the season, Packer is back, and more than ready...
