Episode 78: A Rough Week for the Redbirds
Even though it started off with Michael Wacha coming three outs away from a no-hitter, this hasn't been a week that the Cardinals would like to remember. The legend and icon Red Schoendienst passed away on Wednesday, leaving a hole that will probably never be fully filled. With Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) away this week due to family issues, Kyle Reis (Birds on the Black, @kyler416) and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) talk about Red's legacy and what he meant to the organization, plus who might be able to pick up that torch next.
While the passing of Red is the worst thing this week, there were plenty of other bad things. Daniel and Kyle talk about the loss of Alex Reyes for the year and what that means not only to the 2018 squad but for Reyes going forward. Then there were two losses to the Marlins and a game against the Reds as the show was recording that was scarier than it needed to be. What can the club do? Is there anything the club can do?
Of course, if Kyle is joining the show, we're going to tap into his wheelhouse. The first-year player draft was held this week and Kyle gives a quick look at some of what happened there. Then we talk about a few prospects and finish up with the question everyone is wondering about: what is the future of Carson Kelly?
It's a longer show than normal but it's an enjoyable one, so clear your calendar and give it a listen!
