Found June 18, 2013 on Indians Baseball Insider:
Smoke Signals is back on the cyberwaves tonight from 10:00pm – 11:00pm EST. The one hour show airs every Tuesday and is hosted by IndiansBaseballInsider.com’s Tony Lastoria and Jim Pete and is brought to you by the Akron Aeros. In tonight's episode, Tony and Jim talk about how the Indians have rebounded from a rough stretch to in late May and June to play much better over the past week, but still appear to be a step behind the competition. They will talk about Carlos Carrasco and Corey Kluber's brilliance over the last two games, wonder when Lonnie Chisenhall might be called up (or talk about his callup if it happens before the game), and look into the future with the Indians schedule and what moves they make around the deadline to shore up their team to help them be more consistent so they can compete for a playoff spot. And, oh yeah, good buddy Ubaldo Jimenez got an extra day of rest so he could pitch on the same night as a Smoke Signals broadcast......just like old times!...
