Episode 31: How Long Can You Say The Same Things?
Another week, another recap of baseball that doesn't reach the general quality we are used to from the St. Louis Cardinals. Honestly, neither Daniel Shoptaw (C70 At The Bat, @C70) or Allen Medlock (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) really have any answers, but that doesn't keep them from turning everything over. The offense continues to sputter and you have to wonder how much longer the club can resist taking Jhonny Peralta out of the equation Even that won't help the top of the lineup, which continues to be a huge black hole. What options are there? Can the Cardinals make a deal that will get them out of this funk?
The bullpen situation has changed in the fact that Jonathan Broxton is gone and there's more flexibility, but the trust issues remain, as was seen in Saturday's game against the Cubs. What can you do if you are Mike Matheny? What should you do if you are John Mozeliak? At least the starting pitching is fairly solid, including a major return to form by Adam Wainwright.
Kyle Reis (The Redbird Daily, @kyler416) talks about losing out on Luis Robert, the rise of Jack Flaherty, and Carson Kelly's season, plus what it's like not thinking much about this season's draft. (Apologies if the sound is iffy on this segment--Skype wasn't our greatest friend here.)
Allen and Daniel then talk about your Twitter questions and tell you how you can meet them in person if you are in the St. Louis area this coming weekend!
