The Hot Stove Show returns to 105.7 The Fan and ESPN 1300 tonight at 8 p.m., with Jim Hunter sitting across from your favorite blogger.
I'm referring to myself, in case there was any confusion.
President of baseball operations Andy MacPhail is scheduled to call into the program at the top of the hour. Left-hander Brian Matusz will join us at 8:30 p.m.
Once I learned that MacPhail had been confirmed, I wondered if he was going to make a grand announcement. Maybe break a little news for us. Maybe give me a nice blog entry before bed. The timing of his appearance on the show - the night before FanFest - raised my suspicions.
I don't think that will be the case. I let my imagination run wild.
MacPhail was nice enough to interupt his evening and field some questions before taking part in tomorrow's forums.
Matusz will get us caught up on his winter and look ahead to the 2010 season. I'll try to find out whether he's already cleared room for his Rookie of the Year award.
