Goon Squad/7th Inning Slouch April 10

By Rick Morris

Our FDH Thursday Night lineup on* (9-11 PM EDT) will be a lot of fun as usual:

^ On THE GOON SQUAD (7-8 PM EDT), we devote the show to our coverage of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Our STC hockey correspondent Kyle O'Rourke will be on hand to help break down each of the first round series and we will examine his latest column about the subject matter here. Oh, and remember to check out our series analysis here. Oh, and here's what our friend Russ Cohen from Hockeyology had in the way of predictions.

^ On SEVENTH INNING SLOUCH (8-9 PM EDT), we resume our analysis of starting pitching from last week's show and specifically the notion of which MLB pitchers are and are not aces. We'll let you know who falls where on that spectrum and we'll also be joined by baseball analyst Eric Gold from The Sports Network for his thoughts on the start of the 2008 season.

From 9-11 PM EDT, our anchor program of the evening THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER will feature exquisite coverage of the beginning of the fantasy baseball season and the NFL Draft. The agenda is listed here on our fantasy sports blog.

This four-hour block is the high point for STC programming each week and we invite you to be a part of the action either live tonight or via the STC archives.

* We are heeding a request to start utilizing the SportsTalkCleveland identity because it is the lead one the station for marketing purposes right now. At the same time, we wish to remind everyone of the reason that the SportsTalkNetwork identity has also been in play: the wide variety of programs on the station appealing to a national constituency, from nationally-based general sports programming to mixed martial arts to pro wrestling to the NHL, Major League Baseball, motorsports, extreme sports and fantasy sports. Whether you cheer for Cleveland sports teams or not, we appreciate having you in our audience and we serve you equally well.
