Episode 85: Pour One Out for the Patron Pitcher (and Other Moves)

July 27, 2018

Ever want to hear a couple of Cardinal bloggers react to news in basically real time?  That's what you've got this week as Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) sit down to record right as the Cardinals completely overhaul their bullpen.  This wasn't just getting a couple of tires rotated, this was reworking the whole engine.  (Please note, I am not a car guy so this is as far as I can go with the analogy.)  Sam Tuivailala?  Traded.  Greg Holland?  Nice knowing you.  Brett Cecil?  Conveniently spared by the DL.  Then there was Tyler Lyons.  #70.  The #PatronPitcher, going the same route as Holland.  Somehow, Daniel was able to hold back the tears.

Plenty of new faces as well.  Luke Weaver returns, as does Daniel Poncedeleon from his short trip back after his no-hit debut.  This weekend will also see the first Cardinal apperances by Tyler Webb (not quite the same, Cardinals) and Dakota Hudson as the Cards mull what else to do before the 4 PM Tuesday deadline.

The guys also give their thoughts on whether some Cardinals will be still here on August 1 and what the news about Chris Archer being a target means.  It might be a bit jumbled, but it's a thorough look at everything that's happened!
