Tonight’s interview is with Sounds right-hander Wily Peralta, thought by many to be the Brewers’ top prospect. He discusses his outing and win on Wednesday night in Round Rock when he left due to leg cramping, his up-and-down season so far, what he’s been working on between starts and the emotions during his major league debut in April for Milwaukee.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds reliever Jim Henderson, who Thursday was named as the Sounds’ representative for the upcoming Triple-A All-Star Game on July 11 in Buffalo, NY.  Henderson’s statistics are solid across the board, and this will be his second all-star game as a pro (2009, Midwest League with Low-A Wisconsin). In the interview Henderson talks about his season so far, the honor of being an all-star, his favorite ballparks and mounds around the Pacific Coast League and pitching in 100-degree heat like he did last night in Round Rouck, Texas.

Tonight’s pregame interview is with the radio voice of the Round Rock Express (Rangers), Mike Capps, a former Nashville announcer and, in my opinion, one of the nicest, most honest guys you’ll come across. We discuss the changes for Round Rock the last couple years (going from Astros to Rangers affiliations), the rehab start on Wednesday for Rangers lefty Derek Holland, the effect the Rangers’ recent injuries have had on the Express and the seasons so far former Sounds Brad Nelson and Zach Jackson and Vandy alum Matt Kata.

Here’s a look at the very impressive home of the Albuquerque (NM) Isotopes…Isotopes Park. It opened in ’03, and the team name stems from an episode of The Simpsons

Here is this week’s “Mondays with Mike” with Sounds manager Mike Guerrero, who discusses the Sounds’ power surge on Saturday, the status of what has been an illness-ridden Sounds clubhouse, when prospect Tyler Thornburg will take the mound in a game, the return of shortstop Edwin Maysonet from Milwaukee and what that means for the infield and the decision to bring in Donovan Hand in relief on Saturday instead of having him make a spot start on Sunday.

Tonight’s pregame interview is with Sounds outfielder Logan Schafer, who discusses his two-homer game and near-cycle Friday in Nashville, his hot hitting in June, the improvement in the home run department (7 already this year, 5 last year) and roaming the expansive outfield at hitter-friendly Isotopes Park.

Tonight’s interview is with Sounds catcher Dayton Buller, who got to celebrate his 31st birthday today by joining me for a chat. Not much of a present for him, unfortunately! One of the great things about interviewing players in baseball is that while I go into the interview with some notes and potential questions prepared, I can never say for sure how and where the interview is going to go. I can say this for certain: I didn’t go into today’s interview with Buller knowing that he was in rehabbing Brewers infielder and current Sound Travis Ishikawa’s wedding a few years ago, let alone that Ishikawa and Buller readily admit they’re horrible dancers.  Buller originally came up with the Giants and played with Ishikawa for several years and also has caught pitchers like Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain.
