Episode 48: The Off-Season Begins

It's the first off-season show of 2017 but that doesn't mean Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) don't have things to talk about.  There were a couple of games since the last show, but the biggest news of the week was the after season press conference held by John Mozeliak (with Michael Girsch and Mike Matheny along for the ride).  Changes in the coaching staff and talk about what the focus is going to be this winter were the biggest things out of this meeting.  What does that mean for next year?  What does the front office have to do to get the fans excited again?  All that and more!

Episode 47: The End and the Beginning

While the 2017 season is just about to run its course, there was a lot of finality to this week as the Cubs made sure that there was no October baseball coming for the Cardinals.  Granted, that was a thin thread they had to cut, but now fans can fully turn their attention to the offseason and the changes that the Cardinals need to make.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) talk about various items relating to the last week and the time to come, including whether Lance Lynn got a fair shake in his last start, why Friday night's lineup wasn't as different as expected, and some general thoughts about what could be coming up.

Plus the guys want you to help out by telling them your favorite Cardinal players and there are plenty of things happening at both blogs in the next few weeks!

Bonus: Minor League Trade Chips

Before the winter settles in, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) chats with Kyle (The Redbird Daily, @kyler416) about Memphis's run and how they treated the AAA Championship Game as well as how some of the 2017 draftees did and whether there should be any sort of concern about them with their results.  They also tackle who needs to be added to the 40-man roster and how that impacts who might be part of any sort of deal the Cardinals make this offseason as they try to fulfill their pledge for a makeover.

Episode 46: Getting By With A Little Help From Our Friends

After the Cardinals were swept last weekend by the Cubs, pretty much everything seemed lost and it felt like they were just playing out the string.  Less than a week later, the Redbirds sit 1.5 games out of the wild card due to some losses by Colorado and Milwaukee.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) try to make sense of this turn of events, but really can't figure it out.  The guys talk about the "bad process, good outcome" manuevers of Mike Matheny in the ninth of Friday's game as well as whether this run has saved his job.  They also talk about how good Matt Carpenter has been (hint--it's actually pretty good) and the way the offense has clicked in a way that's similar but different than the expectation at the beginning of the year.  Plus the guys do some scoreboard watching and looking ahead to next week!

Bonus: Is This a Rebellion?

Again, fair warning, there's no Cardinal talk on this one (well, save one reference) as we return to a galaxy far, far away.  With obstacles keeping the rest of our rebel band away, Daniel (@C70) and Tina (@ErdrickStorm) spend some time talking about the recent Star Wars news.  Colin Trevorrow is out as the director of Episode IX and J.J. Abrams is back in the director's chair.  Is this a good thing?  Do directors matter that much in the long run?  And what does this say about Lucasfilm that they continue to swap out helmers?

After discussing that behind-the-scenes stuff, Daniel and Tina turn their attention to the next Star Wars media available, the fourth season of Star Wars Rebels.  This will be the last year of the show so there are a lot of things that need to be wrapped up.  What is the fate of Ezra, Kanan, and others on the Ghost crew?  How closely will they tie into Rogue One?  Will they leave some open threads that can be picked up in future projects?  All this and much more!

Episode 45: It’s Getting Late Out There

The guys would much rather be talking about all the good stuff that the Cardinals have been doing lately, but when they go out and drop a big game to the rival Cubs, that's going to suck up a lot of the oxygen in the room.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) talk about Friday's game in Wrigley and how tenuous is the thread the Cardinals are hanging on to.  They talk about Matt Carpenter and how the shoulder has apparently gotten him to just want to walk, whether Carlos Martinez is the ace of the staff and how today's outing impacts that, and how they feel about the games coming up.  Plus they answer a Twitter question about baseball movies!

As always, the guys would really appreciate any ratings (1 star is fine, more are great) and reviews so they know that you are enjoying the show!

Episode 44: Crunch Time

Hard to believe that the season just has three weeks left in it and the St. Louis Cardinals are still in the playoff hunt.  While the odds are still not in their favor, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) are doing a little scoreboard watching while they keep an eye on the play of the Cardinals.  And that play has seemed to improve lately, though perhaps that's more a factor of their competition.  Whatever the case, there's a lot of good things happening, including Luke Weaver in the rotation and new addition Juan Nicasio in the bullpen.  Injuries are still in the mix, however.  How much of Matt Carpenter's season can be blamed on that shoulder?  Is it a good thing that he's back out there?  Plus we close with a tribute to Don Williams, a favorite of Allen's grandfather.

Bonus: Season Ending Minors Talk

Kyle Reis (The Redbird Daily, @kyler416) joins Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) after a couple of weeks to talk a bit about the minor league system.  It was a good year for the farm as a whole and we've seen some of the fruits of that in the big leagues.  Kyle gives a brief look back and talks about folks like Jack Flaherty that are in St. Louis and a guy in Austin Gomber that for some reason isn't.  The guys also talk about Eli Alvarez and the trade that sent him to Philadelphia as well as the Arizona Fall League participants.  Just a good solid overview of how things are going right now!

Episode 43: The Changes Start Early

Some new faces wearing Cardinal red this week and it wasn't entirely because the calendar flipped over to September.  Somehow John Mozeliak and Michael Girsch found someone that would take Mike Leake and that he'd waive his no-trade clause for.  Then Kevin Siegrist was shown the door.  What do all these changes mean?  What about the young guys like Jack Flaherty and Sandy Alcantara?  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (The Redbird Daily, @amedlock1) get into all that and more about what might happen this offseason with the 40-man roster.  The stretch run is starting so listen in to be prepared!

Bonus: An Off Day in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

If you are looking for Cardinals baseball, be sure to scroll down the feed for Allen and Daniel's regular show.  This one is something entirely different!  Daniel gathers a few other Cardinal bloggers that are also huge Star Wars fans to talk about that universe.  Kyle Reis (@kyler416), Tina Bradley (@ErdrickStorm), and Steven McNeil (@SMcNeil_87) come together to talk about the rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi stand-alone movie as well as what, if anything, Force Friday means to them.  Does Obi-Wan have to stay in the desert?  Do the stand-alones need to branch out from the original trilogy time period?  Will anyone besides ubergeek Daniel be out at midnight for plastic toys?  All that and much more!  Please let us know if you enjoy the show and, if so, we may try to do it a little bit more often.  If you aren't a Star Warsian, please just skip on to the shows that fit more in your wheelhouse.  We hope you enjoy!
