Smoke Signals tonight @ 9:30pm with Matt Meyer

Postby TonyIBI » Thu Oct 23, 2008 7:19 am

Another edition of Smoke Signals airs tonight Thursday Oct 23rd at 9:30-10:30pm. Paul and I will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the organization at each position from majors to minors, and try to hone in on the positions of need and what to do this offseason. A 10pm, the talk will shift over to the winter leagues where we will run down the Hawaii, Arizona, Dominican, Venezuela, and Mexico leagues to see how the Indians players are performing out there. Left-hander Matt Meyer will be on around 10pm to discuss how he is doing and also give some insight into the Hawaii Winter League.

Call in number is 646-716-8012 and the link is below:

Reminder, next week Jeff Stevens will be on and the following week it looks like David Huff will be a go. Lots more players lined up.

Talked to Meyer for 20-25 minutes. Some good insight into his season, what he is up to now, the Hawaii Winter League, his future, and life as a minor leaguer. Here is the podcast:

I really enjoyed meyer its great to hear from guys I really dont have as much knowledge on and must say hearing about him made me place more value in him that he could be a heck of a lefty specialist down the road with the delivery and velocity and got to love any pitcher who feels they can throw a slider 3-2, you need the no fear approach with a bullpen pitcher

Yeah, big props to Matt for coming on last night.

As mentioned, Jeff Stevens will be on this coming Thursday. He'll be a great interview and since he and I have I guess a good rapport I will get some digs in on him about the Phillips trade.

Looks like there should be a guy on every week from here on out until spring training....and from there we will continue it through although the idea by then is to split the show into two parts since the season will be getting going so we'd do 60 mins of Tribe talk and a 30 min minors show.

Everything will be in play.

Olympics, Brandon Phillips....you name it. I think he trusts me enough where he knows I'm going to ask about those things, but do so in a respectful manner.
