Episode 46: Getting By With A Little Help From Our Friends
After the Cardinals were swept last weekend by the Cubs, pretty much everything seemed lost and it felt like they were just playing out the string. Less than a week later, the Redbirds sit 1.5 games out of the wild card due to some losses by Colorado and Milwaukee. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) try to make sense of this turn of events, but really can't figure it out. The guys talk about the "bad process, good outcome" manuevers of Mike Matheny in the ninth of Friday's game as well as whether this run has saved his job. They also talk about how good Matt Carpenter has been (hint--it's actually pretty good) and the way the offense has clicked in a way that's similar but different than the expectation at the beginning of the year. Plus the guys do some scoreboard watching and looking ahead to next week!
