Again, there will be a bonus SethSpeaks.net podcast tonight at 8:00 central time. I encourage you, if you are able to, to tune in by going to www.BlogTalkRadio.com/SethSpeaks. You can participate by asking questions in the chat room, or later in the show, you can even call-in with a phone number shown on that page.
At 8:05 or so, Tampa Bay Rays reliever Grant Balfour will be on the show. You recall he pitched for the Twins in 2004 and did very well in the playoff series against the Yankees. He went through a series of arm injuries and missed all of 2005 and 2006. He worked his way back in 2007 with the Brewers, who let him go, but Tampa Bay picked him up. What he has done this year is incredible. 82 strikeouts in 58+ innings is Anthony Slama-like, but at the big league level.
Balfour will be on for about 20 minutes, and I welcome your questions for him. Should the Twins make the playoffs, they would start by playing in Tampa Bay against Balfour and the Rays on Thursday.
Following Grant, there could be another guest lined up, but if not, I want to encourage your questions via the chat room or by calling in. Should be a fun show with a lot to talk about, so please listen if you are able to, again, at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/SethSpeaks. If your’e not able to listen live, send me an e-mail at SethSpeaksNet@hotmail.com with questions for me or for Grant. I will ask them, and then you will be able to listen to the podcast later at the same site.
