Episode 80: The Misery Continues
It's been a tough week to watch the Cardinals and it's not that much easier to talk about it, but Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and fill-in cohost Moose Michaels (243 Podcast, @MooseMichaels) dive into the muck looking for a pearl anyway. (Allen--@amedlock1 on the Twitter--had a rough week as well and was unable to join us for this one.) The Cardinals are playing good teams and losing in a variety of ways, though none uglier than Thursday night against the Brewers. What should they do to get better? What can they do?
One of the few bright spots is Jack Flaherty, who went into the seventh with a no-hitter tonight. Is he going to have to stabilize this rotation? What's the problem with Carlos Martinez? How much does the loss of Michael Wacha hurt?
It's not a Cardinal podcast if the manager doesn't get discussed. Does Mike Matheny have the fire necessary to spark this team? Has he lost the clubhouse? How stable is his seat, anyway?
All this and much more. Hopefully soon we'll have better things to talk about!
