Episode 41: Anybody’s Arm Still Attached?

Technical difficulties pushed this week's episode off a few days, but that's just par for the course for things around the Cardinals these days, especially when it comes to those that throw the ball.  Adam Wainwright and Trevor Rosenthal both have gone to the DL but the questions surround the rotation and the bullpen go beyond just those two guys.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) get into all of the other options around those absences.  Can Luke Weaver fill the gap?  Should there be more reinforcements from Memphis?  What about dealing for someone like Justin Verlander?  Plenty of pitching talk but that's not all!  Give us a listen and then drop us some stars and a review!

Bonus: More Minors Talk With Kyle

Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) chats with Kyle Reis (The Redbird Daily, @kyler416) about what the minor league teams are doing with just a few weeks left in their season, what prospects have had a noticable week, and who might be coming up as injury replacements should the big squad need them.  Plus a little guessing on who might get a September call!

Episode 40: First Place Cards

It's fair to say Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) didn't see that coming.  One week after lamenting a rough season that just seemed like it was getting worse, the Cardinals have soared to first place on the basis of an eight game winning streak.  This turnaround has basically had everyone at a loss for words, but Allen and Daniel give it a shot anyway.  What's gone right over this week?  What hasn't?  Because there are still rough spots out there.  A quick recap of a number of players and a look ahead to next week and the weeks beyond as the guys just revel in this reversal of fortune!

Episode 39: Down and Out in the NL Central

It's getting harder and harder to find things to talk about with this team (assuming you don't want to dwell on the players' Instagram accounts) but Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) give it a go anyway.  The Cardinals didn't help out much, making absolutely no deals at the trade deadline.  Was that the right thing to do, either from a competitive perspective or a business one?  The club then lost three of four, including another offensive snoozer in Cincinnati Friday night.  Is this just a temporary downturn or is this going to last a while?  All that plus an opportunity for you to help out a fellow blogger!

Bonus: Minors Talk With Kyle

Given how long the main shows go and how in depth we can get with our minors segment, we decided trying to break it out this week as a bonus episode and see how that works.  Daniel sits down with Kyle Reis (The Redbird Daily, @kyler416) and talked about his new masters-level podcast with Colin Garner about the minors called Prospect to be Named Later (search for it on iTunes or wherever you are listening from!).  They also get into some pitchers that got promoted over the last week as well as some of the prospects we have seen/are seeing in the big leagues now and what their usage or lack thereof means for their development and the team in general.

Episode 38: Some Tired Discussion

It was a fun Friday in Cardinal Nation as Yadier Molina took offense at an article and put his manager on Instablast.  Who was right, who was wrong, and does it mean as much as we think?  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) are joined by Kyle (The Redbird Daily, @kyler416) to talk about a story that could only seem to happen to the 2017 Cardinals.  Does it matter that Tommy Pham, Dexter Fowler, and all "liked" the post?  How crazy does it feel to be even talking about such minutia?

The guys also tackle the upcoming trade deadline.  What will the Cardinals do?  Will Lance Lynn stay a member of the squad?  Is it possible to have as many outfielders as St. Louis does and NOT move one or two of them?  Who stays, who goes in the next few days?

Plus Kyle gives us a rundown on some of the minor league talent and picks out a couple of players that might move in a deal.  So much to listen for!

Episode 37: Give It a Shake

The Cardinals have come out of the break like they played most of the first half--not good enough to dominate, not bad enough to fully sell off.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) talk about the last week of ballgames, the frustrating late losses and the highs of watching 11 Cardinals come to the plate at Wrigley and none of them get out.  Then they get into Friday's roster moves and trade of Marco Gonzales and what that means for what's coming up.  Is there something more brewing in the Redbird front office?  Finally the guys tackle a couple of Cardinal Twitter hot topics, Mike Matheny's job status and Matt Carpenter's.....Matt Carpenterness.

Episode 36: In a Minor Key

The Cardinals are back from the All-Star Break, but not much seems to have changed, dropping their first one out of the second-half gate on a ninth-inning walkoff.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) are joined by minor league expert Kyle Reis (The Redbird Daily, @kyler416) to not only talk about what's going on at the big league level and what the direction of the team might be as the trading deadline draws near, but also to have an expanded conversation about some of the names that are bubbling around the system.  Are these folks that are going to be traded or are they folks that are going to force a trade?  Who's been a surprise and who's been a disappointment?  You'll find a lot of very fascinating minor league information here as well as a good conversation about the big league club.  Get comfortable and give it a listen!

Episode 35: Treading Water

Another week, another mediocre outing from the Cardinals.  It's been about a month since the big press conference/coaches shakeup and still St. Louis can't seem to put a run together to reach .500.  After a loss to the Mets, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) talk about the return of Dexter Fowler, why Tommy Pham sat tonight, and why Jose Martinez and not Randal Grichuk is currently on the Memphis roster.  The guys then get into talk about Josh Donaldson and the rumors floating around his possible acquisition plus other related items such as the improvement of Brett Cecil and whether or not Tyler Lyons should be going out there as often as he is.

Bonus: Greatest Cardinal Moment Tournament

It's under the Meet Me at Musial banner, but this one's a little different.  Starting July 10 and continuing until the closing day of the season, four Cardinal blogs will be holding a tournament to determine which is the great moment in the 125 years of Cardinal history.  To talk about this project, Daniel sat down with Noah Adelstein of Cardsblog, Dr. Michael Miles of Redbird Rants, and Brendan Schaeffer of The Intrepid STL, the three other blogs (along with C70 At The Bat) that will be hosting regionals in this tournament.  Each talks about their site, the tournament as a whole, and some of the interesting matchups in their regional.

Matchups will be published in the following order:

Mondays: C70 At The Bat (Branch Rickey Regional)
Tuesdays: The Intrepid STL (Bing Devine Regional)
Wednesdays: Redbird Rants (Walt Jocketty Regional)
Thursdays: Cardsblog (John Mozeliak Regional)

For more information about the tournament, please check out this post, which gives you a link to the bracket as well as a more detailed schedule of what games will be coming when.  Be sure to vote and discuss this as we celebrate Cardinal history!
