Episode 104: Love Us Some Cardinal Baseball

If it's Valentine's Day, we've got to be talking about one of the great loves of our lives, right?  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) take time away from their wives to talk about the first real week of spring training.  Marcell Ozuna was caught throwing awkwardly--is that a concern?  The Cardinals won't slam the door on Carlos Martinez slamming the door as a closer.  How likely is it that they'd make that move and should they?  John Mozeliak says don't look for any spring moves, even with a slew of free agents available.  There's a lot going on around the Cardinals and we're talking about it!

Episode 103: Jonesing for the Season

Baseball season is just around the corner and the pictures and thoughts of Florida are a welcome relief to the cold that has gripped the Midwest this week (unlike the spring-like temps that were here earlier in the week--weather, amirite?).  Of course, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) are always excited about the Cardinals and this week they are joined by Jeff Jones (Scoops With Danny Mac, @jmjones) to talk about the upcoming season.  The guys talk about Jeff's young baseball writing career and the possibility of the Cardinals going to London in 2020 before tackling the issues of the current team.  From who makes the roster to how the managerial switch will impact the club, it's a wide-ranging discussion you won't want to miss!  Plus you can now buy MMM t-shirts so stick around for details on that!

Episode 102: Marking the Occasion

With the Super Bowl reaching us, that means spring training can't be far behind.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) are pleased to be joined by The Athletic writer Mark Saxon (@markasaxon).  The three talk about Mark's career and some of the notable articles he's written, both last year (the Jordan Hicks/Bud Norris article) and more recent (Alex Reyes and his rehab).  Then they turn their attentions to the current squad, covering the offseason, where the Cards stand, and what misgivings could be around this team.

After that, Allen and Daniel get into the Cardinal Hall of Fame ballot and then (sigh) Daniel talks about the latest Cardinal twitter controversy.  Feel free to skip that part.

Episode 101: Laying Down the Law

With Winter Warmup behind us, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) add in Adam Butler (Bird Law, @LanceDance1) to talk about the three-day event.  Adam was one of the bloggers that was in the media scrum asking questions and getting feedback, which means that Daniel and Allen have plenty of questions for him.  From John Mozeliak's comments about Marcell Ozuna to Dexter Fowler's first appearance, the guys go over it all and get the scoop from a man who was there!

Bonus: Difficult to See the Future Is

It's a break from the baseball to head back out to a galaxy far, far away.  This time, a great panel of Star Wars fanatics looks forward to what 2019 has in store for everyone.  Joining Daniel (@C70) this time are Tina (@ErdrickStorm), Tito (@triveratops), Steven (@SMcNeil_87), Ron (@ToR_Ron75), and, making his Star Wars podcasting debut, James (@very_stupid_man).  The gang talks about their feelings about Star Wars Resistance, both what has occurred and what is promised by the mid-season trailer.  Disney's addition to their theme parks, Galaxy's Edge, comes this summer and find out who already has body parts up for sale to pay for the trip.  Disney+ is coming this fall and with it, The Mandalorian.  How will the first live-action Star Wars show go and how will it be released?  Finally, it all culminates in Episode IX, whatever that title might be, and everyone chimes in on what they want to see from the film.  It's a cold winter's night with the hot stove barely simmering, so come join us for a little different type of talk!

Episode 99: Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot

It's the end of the year but that doesn't mean there's not a little bit of Cardinal news for Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) to discuss before the calendar flips.  St. Louis went to Miller, bringing in Andrew to solidify the left side of the bullpen.  How will he be used?  Is this a good move for the Redbirds?  The Cards also brought back Francisco Pena to back up Yadier Molina, which could have some serious ramifications in 2019--or be a move that really doesn't matter.

Then the guys talk about the year that was 2018.  From the firing of Mike Matheny and the hiring of Mike Shildt to the trade for Paul Goldschmidt and everything in between, Daniel and Allen look back on the past 12 months as they get ready for another fun year of Cardinal baseball.

Thanks to everyone that's listened to the show this year, as it has been our best year yet (as measured by average downloads).  Here's to more good stuff in 2019!

Episode 98: Dex The Halls

The stove might not be blazing, but Twitter sure has been this past week.  In this Christmas edition of Meet Me at Musial, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) spend a lot of time talking about Dexter Fowler, given the interview that he gave with Derrick Goold this week.  They talk about his frame of mind, how this story will affect his playing time next year, and what this means for the Cardinals' chase (or, more appropriately, amble) after Bryce Harper.  The guys also talk about the deal of Patrick Wisdom to Texas, the FOX Sports Midwest kerfluffle, and what the team really should be looking for in a backup catcher.  Happy holidays from us all!

Episode 97: All That Glitters Is Not Gold….But Some of It Is!

Hello, Paul Goldschmidt!  The Cardinals went big to address their offensive issues and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) are here to cover all the angles.  The guys talk about what Goldschmidt might bring to what the Cardinals gave up for him, plus the issues relating to him only being under contract for one year.  Does this mean no Bryce Harper?  What else will the Cards do this winter, especially with the winter meetings about to start up?  Which Cardinals might not be wearing the birds on the bat next season?  It's a pretty focused show around the new acquisition!

Episode 96: Poking at the Stove

While it's been a warm weekend for the guys, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) still would like a little heat from the stove.  Josh Donaldson has gone to Atlanta, so what does that tell us about the Cardinals and their offseason plans?  Jerry DiPoto is still wheeling and dealing, which could have St. Louis implications.  The Cards signed Chasen Shreve and the non-tender deadline passed without any drama.  When will the action pick up?  The guys also talk about a Paul Goldschmidt trade and general philosophy about this offseason.  Give it a listen!
