Episode 73: Revenge of the Fifth
It's been a tough week for the St. Louis Cardinals. Not necessarily on the field, as they've won four straight against Chicago teams (two White Sox, two Cubs) and a couple of those in dramatic fashion. It's come at a cost, though, as four players were injured over the last two days, including what seems to be a serious injury to Yadier Molina. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) talk about the winning ways of this club even as the offense has struggled. Some underlying stats seem to indicate Matt Carpenter is due to come out of it, but how much do we buy into that? Luke Weaver has been rough the last few times out--can he turn it around? What happens in the bullpen if Dominic Leone and, more notably, Bud Norris are out for any length of time?
The guys also talk a little Solo movie in honor of Star Wars Day being yesterday (when this was recorded) and spend time waiting for Molina updates by talking about the Cardinal Hall of Fame selections (stick around for Daniel's hot take about the 1980s) and the 3000th hit of Albert Pujols. Plenty here including a lot of worry that hopefully is unfounded. If you enjoy, please give us a rating and review on iTunes. We'd appreciate it!
