Smoke Signals 2/19: Weglarz Tonight!

Postby TonyIBI » Thu Feb 19, 2009 10:30 am

Paul and I are back on the cyberwaves tonight Thursday February 19th from 9:30-10:30pm for another edition of Smoke Signals. We'll be talking Tribe and discussing some of the events from the past week since the start of spring training (which is basically a whole lot of nothing!). We will also have outfield prospect Nick Weglarz on around 10pm for our weekly on-air interview for the second half of the show. The link to listen live or download the podcast is provided below:

Please feel free to call in at 646-716-8012. One random caller tonight will win a free TheClevelandFan.com T-shirt just for calling in to talk with us, which is a contest we will run for the next few weeks. Also, feel free to e-mail us at smokesignals@theclevelandfan.com with any questions or ideas to talk about tonight or to ask Weglarz.

As I mentioned in my Saturday update, we are catching Weglarz at the right time because he actually flew out to Goodyear late last week to workout in big league camp with the Indians to prepare for the Word Baseball Classic (WBC). He leaves Goodyear on February 28th to join his Team Canada teammates in Florida for a few exhibition games and then they kick off the tournament on March 7th in Toronto against Team USA. He just turned 21 years old, is up to 255 pounds, and is one of the best young power prospects in the game, so 2009 could be the breakout season that sees him greatly ascend many of the national Top 100 prospect lists. His experience playing internationally in various tournaments the last year and a half will no doubt help him as he begins to face Double-A pitching for the first time this year.

Next week, we will have first baseman/outfielder Stephen Head on (Feb 26th). Nothing is for certain after that, but it looks like Chris Kline will be on either March 5th or March 12th. And of course, we will have some more players on throughout the month of March, which should be very interesting as we get their insight on spring training and how things with them are going.

Also, yours truly is preliminarily scheduled to be on SportsTime Ohio on Friday March 6th to plug my new book on TV and also talk about the top prospects and start of minor league spring training.

We need to talk about the trade for Juan and the DFA of Marte as well.
