Episode 26: Filling In the Hole
Another great week of Cardinal baseball, at least in the results, has the Cards knocking on the door of first place and Daniel Shoptaw (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen Medlock (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) in a good mood. Everything's not perfect, of course, but the flaws in this team are easier to swallow when they are winning nine of 11. Daniel and Allen look at the good and the bad at each facet of the team, from the strong starts of Mike Leake and Lance Lynn to what to expect out of Adam Wainwright going forward. The bullpen doesn't escape scrutiny, as the guys wonder about Kevin Siegrist and dissect just how Mike Matheny has been using the arms this week.
Offensively, the team seems to be clicking a little more, thanks in part to Dexter Fowler finding his footing and Jedd Gyorko claiming third base as his own. What happens when Jhonny Peralta comes back? Will Gyroko have the position the rest of the year? The guys tackle those points as well as the Twitter questions provided by you, the listeners!
