XX Sports Radio: Kevin Towers Interview (MP3) [yesterday]
- Darren Smith asks Towers about the chances of getting Strasburg: "As of right now it's less likely it will happen. Stranger things have happened... you look at our situation a few years ago...we ended up taking Matt Bush"
- Towers is looking to take the third best player in the country in the draft.
- Towers has liked the arm strength and quality of secondary pitches so far in the bullpen.
- Cabrera is going to start yesterday.
- Towers considers himself resourceful rather than a dumpster diver
- It is important for someone to step up to protect Adrian Gonzalez in the line up or else no one is going to pitch to him. Towers thinks Headley will have a good year and Kouz will eventually get it.
- Duaner Sanchez will be the 8th inning guy. Cla Meredith will be the 7th inning guy. "Cla to me is more of a right handed specialist"
- "The best part of '09 being on at 1:05pm with Darren"
