Episode 69: Not The Start We Had Planned
Baseball's back! The Cardinals have played a game in the 2018 season! We should be overjoyed, yet after their 9-4 loss to the Mets, that's not exactly the feeling that is prevalent. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) talk about all the issues that came out of that first game, from Carlos Martinez's lackluster start to worries about Matt Bowman. The Cards went out and got Greg Holland for their ninth inning needs. Was that really necessary? What does that mean for the club and who gets to find out their seat is now taken? Jordan Hicks took the expressway to Cardinal fans' hearts as well as the majors. Is this the best move for the young fireballer? Finally, Jose Oquendo told the media that Jose Martinez would be the main first baseman going forward. What does this mean for the musical chairs that is St. Louis's infield and is this a power struggle or shift from the manager? Plenty of things to talk about this week!
(PS: Apologies if there are sound issues or glitches. Both Allen and Daniel had various issues while recording this and there's only so much Daniel can do with his rudimentary skills to clean it up.)
