Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) kick off the eighth season of the show by honoring what has become tradition to begin things, bringing on Jeff Jones (Belleville News-Democrat, @jmjones) to start the season off properly. The guys talk about a wide variety of items, starting with the current MLB lockout and what this winter has been like for a writer and wrapping up with a look at the 2022 Cardinals.

Episode 225: A Year End Grab Bag

12/28/2021
As 2021 comes to a close, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) get together one final time to put a bow on the season. The lockout is still the only real topic in baseball and the guys talk about what they want to see come out of the CBA negotiations and how confident they are the 2022 season will start on time. They then tackle some of the topics around the Hall of Fame voting before finishing up with a quick look back at the Cardinals season. Thanks to all...

Episode 224: Lockout Around the Christmas Tree

12/4/2021
The baseball world got unnaturally quiet this week as the CBA expired and the owners decided to lock out the players. Jason Hill (Viva El Birdos, @JPHill_Cards) joins Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) to talk about how things are different and when we might see baseball back to normal. They also spend time talking about the signing of Steven Matz and what the 2022 Cardinals will look like should they get back on the field. What is their ceiling? Is there something the Cardinals can do to improve...

Episode 223: Giving Thanks

11/23/2021
It's Thanksgiving week and we hope you'll be thankful there's another Meet Me at Musial episode! Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) talk about what they are thankful for as Cardinal fans but they also get into some of the news of the day. Does the activity around baseball mean that the looming lockout isn't going to be that bad? What are Allen's thoughts on the new members of the coaching staff? The guys also revisit the starting pitcher vs. shortstop...

Episode 222: Chirping Away at the Offseason

11/12/2021
No Allen Medlock (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) on this one, unfortunately, but Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) brings in yet another podcasting team to help cover the gap. Tara (Birds on the Black, @tarawellman) and Alex (Birds on the Black, @alexcards79) from Chirps sit in and cover a wide range of subjects. How much impact will Skip Schumaker have on the organization? How will things be different under Oli Marmol? Does it matter that the Cards resigned T.J. McFarland? All this and some talk...

Episode 221: A New Boss

10/28/2021
We've got Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) back safely ensconced in the co-hosts chair just in time to talk about the new Cardinal manager. It's no surprise that Oli Marmol got the gig but what does that mean for the rest of the staff? Allen and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) go over that, then discuss the excellent showing by the Cardinals in the Gold Glove nominees. Who will win and who won't? The guys also talk about the decade of Cardinal baseball that has happened since Allen Craig...

Episode 220: Turning Two

10/22/2021
With Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) out on assignment, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) welcomes in the guys from the Turnin' 2 Podcast (@Turnin2Podcast), Tito (@triveratops) and the man known as Dylan_Dinger. The guys continue to break down the surprising firing of Mike Shildt with everyone tossing in conjectures and thoughts. They also discuss Shildt's reported interview coming up with the Padres as well as who they'd like to see take over the Cardinals job. After that, they discuss...

Episode 219: No Shildt, Cardinals

10/14/2021
As Han Solo once said, "This is not how I thought this day was going to go." Stunning news out of St. Louis this afternoon as Mike Shildt was fired as manager. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) is joined by the Bens of Cardinals Off Day, Mr. Godar (@bengodar) and Mr. Humphries (@b_g_h) to talk about this surprising turn of events. What could be the cause of these "philosophical differences"? What impact does a manager have a team these days anyway? Who will be the 51st manager of the Cardinals...

Episode 218: The Winter Begins

10/9/2021
The postseason was short and less than sweet and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) are here to talk about it. From Adam Wainwright's mastery to Alex Reyes's last pitch, the guys talk about some of the important points of the game while taking a brief look at the winter to come. Plus Allen has some news!

Episode 217: Beginnings and Endings

10/1/2021
The Cardinals lost a game this week. It's remarkable that that piece of information is news! After a record run, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) talk about what's next for this team. Which team should the Cardinals want to see in the wild card game? Is there a path to the World Series for this club? This weekend is the last for Mike Shannon and Matt Carpenter. Is there anything to Shannon's most recent bombshell? And how will Carpenter go out? All this...

Episode 216: A Dozen Reasons to Love the Cardinals

9/24/2021
Twelve wins in a row, something the club hasn't done since 1982 which is not entirely outside of Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen's (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) lifetimes but far enough back that the guys aren't going to remember it. Daniel and Allen talk about what this team has done over the stretch and most notably yesterday in Milwaukee, rallying in a game that seemed destined to end the streak. Not everything is perfect--the bullpen usage still is a concern--but there's a lot...

Episode 215: The Boring Team Goes Wild

9/17/2021
After a sweep in New York and some help along the way, the Cardinals reach the weekend a 1/2 game ahead of the Padres for the second wild card right before San Diego pays a visit to Busch. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) talk about this turn of events and what has gotten the Cards to this point. The pitching staff is shaping up, but how does Dakota Hudson and Jack Flaherty fit into the picture? There's talk about the outfield and how it is clicking,...

Episode 214: Past, Present, and Future

9/10/2021
It wasn't the worst week of Cardinal baseball, but take out an inning and it would have been a lot better. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) talk about many different facets of the week, especially the Dodgers series (though, surprisingly, not much about the return of Mr. Pujols). Did Mike Shildt have enough urgency for that series? Does any team really want to win the wild card? The guys also talk a lot about Matt Carpenter, Alex Reyes, and some possible...

Episode 213: An Expanded Roster But A Shrinking Horizon

9/3/2021
We've flipped the calendar to September, the last guaranteed month of baseball (OK, there are three games in October with the Cubs as well.) Daniel and Allen talk about the last week, the series with the Reds, and look at a few other issues surrounding the Cardinals. Is the closer spot really about matchups and will Alex Reyes find himself back there soon? What does the rest of the way look like for the Cardinals? And could the Cardinals have come up with a more boring September callup...

Episode 212: A Meltdown of a Season

8/27/2021
After one of the (but, amazingly, not THE) hardest losses of the season, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) come together to talk about the state of the Cardinals through the prism of the debacle against the Pirates. What is Mike Shildt doing? Is the bullpen going to survive? Even though they scored seven runs, this offense isn't reliable either. Plus there's the Yadier Molina extension to discuss as well. So much packed into one hour!

Episode 211: Reasons for Hope

8/20/2021
While the Cardinals didn't win the series against the Brewers, they easily could have (you can argue should have) and weren't outclassed by the division leaders. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) talk about the win on Thursday, the series in general, and what's coming up for the Cardinals, Reds, and Padres. There's also a discussion of bullpen management by the manager (before news of Ryan Helsley's injury broke) and more condemnation about the...

Episode 210: Baseball Finds a Way

8/13/2021
It was a successful week of Cardinal baseball, winning two of three from the Royals and sweeping the Pirates. Now, on the verge of another series with Kansas City, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) sit down and talk about if there are signs for optimism. Jack Flaherty is coming back, though Wade LeBlanc seems to be going out. Can the club make a run at the wild card? Is the upcoming Milwaukee series a line in the sand? They talk about the overuse of Tommy...

Episode 209: Looking For Something Fresh

8/6/2021
It's honestly not been a great week for the St. Louis Cardinals, capped off by a come from ahead loss on Wednesday night when the final four runs scored via bases loaded walks. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) try to come to terms with a Cardinals team that seems like they are already playing meaningless baseball even if they aren't technically eliminated. Should we see more creativity, both on the field and from the front office? How are we feeling...

Episode 208: Trades For Thee But Not For Me

7/29/2021
Back in January, the guys were recording when Nolan Arenado became a Cardinal. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) hoped lightning would strike twice as they recorded less than 24 hours before the trade deadline, only to see a couple of potential targets head elsewhere (it appears). While much of the show focuses around the club's inaction and silent running during this active time, the guys do talk about the recent games in Cincinnati and Cleveland as well...

Episode 207: Trending Upward

7/23/2021
It was a much better week of Cardinal baseball than we've seen in a while, even if it had one crushing ninth inning mixed in. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) talk about a wide variety of Cardinals topics. Is there a concern over the bullpen usage and that Alex Reyes and Giovanny Gallegos might get overused? Will John Mozeliak make a move at the deadline or rely on the return of Jack Flaherty and Miles Mikolas? Will Yadier Molina ever rest? Plus the guys...
