Dan and Daniel are back for another episode of The Best Dans in Baseball, fresh off watching the Cards run through Philadelphia and Miami. In this installment, the guys talk about the pitching of the Cardinals in general and Jaime Garcia in particular. They also discuss how good that John Lackey trade looks now that both Allen Craig and Joe Kelly are part of Boston's AAA team. Injuries to Matt Holliday and Jordan Walden take their turn in the spotlight, with both players hopefully coming back soon.
Is Mike Matheny just lucky or does he know just when to use folks? It's a reasonable question after watching Pete Kozma go 3-for-3. Is his use of Jon Jay problematic? Is Peter Bourjos really not getting a fair shake? And can this explosive offense continue when St. Louis runs into a real pitching staff?
