High school baseball season is over which means the band is back together. Daniel (@C70) welcomes in Allen (@amedlock1) after 20 weeks of great guests to see where things stand both with him and the Cardinals.

How great is Masyn Winn and, conversely, how much do we worry about Jordan Walker? What might be happening in the front office? And with the official reveal, how do the City Connect jerseys sit with the guys? All that and much more! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Meet Me At Musial, Episode 332, Cardinals Past and Present

5/17/2024
It's always a blast when Alex Crisafulli (@alexcards79) joins the show and this time is no exception. Daniel (@C70) and Alex talk about the current team while they bludgeon their way to a win against the Red Sox. Have they missed their window of being able to support good pitching? Will this team be good, interestingly bad, or just bad? The guys also dip into their well of Cardinal memories, talking about Vince Coleman, Matt Morris, Dave Duncan, Jeff Weaver, and other players and teams from the past. Plus they discuss the leaked City Connect jerseys and talk about the balanced schedule in ways that probably won't surprise you. It's an extra-long show but that's just more goodness for you!

4/27/2024
Some better play and some more wins have Daniel (@C70) and this week's guest Ben Godar of Cardinals Off Day (@bengodar) at least somewhat more optimistic about this team. How long can it last, though? Can the pitching keep this run going until the offense really clicks? Why is Jordan Walker in Memphis? Why is Ben scared of the high draft pick this summer? Can they make the team completely out of catchers? All this and much more in a fun conversation! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Meet Me At Musial, Episode 326, A Peaceful Week Has Us Loving Baseball

4/6/2024
The Cardinals, as of this writing, are a team above .500. That's something we couldn't say at all in 2023! Daniel (@C70) gets a chance to talk it all over with Kelsey Burd (@kburdtweets) to find out just how the vibes are going around this team right now. How much better does this team feel than after the first two games? What happens when Lars Nootbaar--and then others--rejoin the team? Will Ivan Herrera ever give back the catching job?

Meet Me At Musial, Episode 325, One Game Overreactions

3/29/2024
There's only one game in the books (as the show is recorded) but that doesn't mean it doesn't feel familiar. Daniel (@C70) brings in Russ Robinson (@frrobinson1957) to talk about an Opening Day that fell flat. Was the loss itself frustrating or was it more because it was very much like 2023 in its character? Is it surprising that Victor Scott II made it to the majors after the injury to Dylan Carlson? There's been some updates on the injuries, so there's some talk about that as well as what might be different if Bill DeWitt Jr. stepped away. Plus we check in with Allen (@amedlock1) and see how his week went! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

3/21/2024
The great line of 2024 guests continues as Daniel (@C70) welcomes in Richard McGill (@RichardMcGill89), half of the father-son duo that makes up the Playing Catch podcast. With the regular season just a week away, the guys take stock of what the Cardinals are showing down in Florida. How concerning is the lack of power? Are the starting pitchers going to be this bad? Or is everything meaningless in such a small sample size? The guys go through all of that and then touch on the news out of Los Angeles (by way of Korea) about Shohei Ohtani. Plus we check in with Coach Medlock (@amedlock1) about his team as they hit spring break. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Meet Me At Musial, Division Preview 4, Here There Be Pirates

3/18/2024
The Pirates are usually last when you think about the NL Central. While that's not why we're just now getting around to talking about them, it is a bit of reasonable representation of how things go. However, things might be changing in the Steel City. Daniel (@C70) talks it over with Connor Williams (@Wins_Williams) who brings us insight on that squad. What was the offseason like for them (and how was it like the one in St. Louis)? When will Paul Skenes make it to the show? What team could finish behind the Pirates in the standings? Plenty of good chatter about the black and gold! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Meet Me At Musial, Episode 323, A Clear Case of Projection

3/15/2024
Every year, Ben Cerutti (@stlfancb7) comes by the show to talk about his projection system and what it says about the year to come. However, the main topic for today was something nobody saw coming. Oli Marmol was the winner of the St. Louis Spring Extension contest, getting a two year deal. Daniel (@C70) talks it over with Ben, discussing the reasons the club did it now and whether it will keep them from making a needed move this winter. Then they get into Ben's projections, talking about who looks good according to these numbers, and more notably what it means for Victor Scott II.

Meet Me At Musial, Division Preview 3, The Other Red Team

3/14/2024
The Reds may be the most interesting team in the NL Central. The range of outcomes may be greater for them than any other team. Daniel (@C70) chats with Doug Gray (@dougdirt24) about that team from Cincinnati. Did they have a successful offseason? What's it like to not have Joey Votto around? What has to happen for the Reds to take the division with 90 wins? All that and much more on our third divisional showcase! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Daniel (@C70) talks it over with Evan Altman (@DEvanAltman) to get a feel for how 2024 is shaking out for them. From the offseason to how Craig Counsell is settling in to who will win the division, there's plenty of good-natured discussion here for Cardinals fans to better understand a rival!

3/1/2024

This year, the Dirty 35 (plus 15) showed up on Twitter with limited commentary but Daniel (@C70) brings the prospect guru on to break it all down. Where does Cooper Hjerpe rank? Who farther down the list should you keep an eye on? Is Travis Honeyman's future sweet or sour? All that and much more, plus talk about what's gone on so far in Cardinals camp.

There's also some talk about the reconstructed bullpen and who might (and might not) be a part of it along with what Jason's looking for as spring training games get underway shortly.
