Smoke Signals - Farm Report 2.3: Live From Lake County

In the first live remote episode of 2017, Jake and Corey head up to Eastlake for a visit with the Lake County Captains, who boast a wealth of pitching prospects and some intriguing position player talent.

"Farm Report" is a weekly prospect analysis podcast hosted by Jake Dungan and Corey Crisan as they discuss all the latest news and notes regarding the Indians' farm system.

Thanks to a pitching-heavy draft by the Indians last season, their Single-A affiliate in Eastlake is suddenly loaded with top hurler talent as the Lake County Captains embark on their 2017 campaign. Jake and Corey pay a visit to Classic Park for the first of many live remote editions of the Farm Report podcasts this season as they analyze the Captains' season-opening roster under first-year manager Larry Day and also conduct exclusive interviews with some of the team's top players.

Topics discussed:

-  The pitching-rich Captains.

-  Established team chemistry prior to 2017.

-  Todd Isaacs interview.

-  Isaacs and the "it" factor.

-  Juan Hillman interview.

-  Hillman looking to learn and grow from last season.

-  Final thoughts from Eastlake.
