It's been another roller coaster week for the St. Louis Cardinals and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) are here to talk about it while the Cardinals tackle the San Diego Padres in one of those fun late-night West Coast games. The big topic right now is Matt Carpenter, who is in the middle of a 1 for 21 that has his average under .150. Which side of the divide do you come down on, the one that says there's some bad luck there or the side that really thinks that's an excuse? How long can you let him try to figure it out? Carpenter's not the only one with some severely bad numbers. What do you do with a problem like Dexter?
Injuries have taken their toll over the last week, with folks like Yadier Molina, Dominic Leone, Carlos Martinez, and the #PatronPitcher taking up residence on the 10-day DL. Should we be concerned about Carlos's injury? Have the Cardinals figured out how to use the DL like they are using the Memphis shuttle?
All that and more (though really, just a lot on the Carpenter thing) in this week's show. Be sure to rate and review us on iTunes if you are enjoying it!
