Episode 240: Passing The Torch

On one end of this past week, you had the old guys of Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright, and Albert Pujols taking the spotlight. On the other, the news of the promotions of Nolan Gorman and Matthew Liberatore. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) brings in Ben Godar (Cardinals Off Day, @bengodar) to chat about those bookends plus other things arising out of this week. What's the bullpen going to look like? Should the starters be going longer? Is this offense really as bad as we sometimes think? Plus...


Episode 239: Saying the DeJong Thing

It was a momentous week for the Cardinals and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and guest host Jason Hill (Viva El Birdos, @JPHill_Cards) are here to talk all about it. Of course, the big news was the Paul DeJong demotion but the guys talk about a few things before that topic, including the sputtering offense. Eventually they get to DeJong, the reasons why Tommy Edman is still at second, and why is Nolan Gorman still at Memphis? Plus, after some internet issues, Daniel and Jason discuss some...


Episode 238: West Coast Ponderings

The Cardinals are out on the West Coast, meaning that it's a late start to the night of baseball. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) brings in Russ Robinson (Redbird Rants, @frrobinson1957) to talk about all things Cardinals before the game gets underway. The guys talk about all manner of things, whether it's the COVID issues around Adam Wainwright, the confidence in the pitching rotation and what sort of depth there is backing it up, and the Cardinal Hall of Fame. Of course, we are also legally...


Episode 237: Off To A Good Start

The Cardinals being on an alternate viewing stream on Friday night gave Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and guest Alex (Birds on the Black, @alexcards79) something new to complain about, even if they didn't completely take advantage. This show isn't all about griping, though, not with the Cardinals off to a strong start to the 2022 season. What's working with the club right now? How much fun has it been to see a relaxed Albert Pujols and has he rubbed off on Yadier Molina? Why does it seem the...


Episode 236: Examining The Small Sample

As the Cardinals put a pounding to the Brewers, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) brings in Evan (Redbird Rewind, @webb_evan12) to talk about the very early going of the 2022 season. The offense has looked pretty sharp, all things considered, led by....Tommy Edman? (Well, Nolan Arenado first but Edman is right up there.) The guys talk about that surprise as well as other bits and pieces from the first week. Does anyone feel better about the pitching staff? How much fun are Albert Pujols and...


Episode 235: Starting With a Bang

The 2022 St. Louis Cardinals season is here and, so far, it's spectacular. With one game in the books, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) sits down with Carter Zehr (Cardinals Chat podcast, @CardinalsChat18) to go through the ins and outs of the Opening Day celebration. How great was the honoring of the Big Three? How exciting was the offense? Was there anything at all troubling about the day in general? The guys break down everything plus talk about the decision of Jordan Hicks as fifth starter....


Episode 234: The Return

With the return of Albert Pujols to St. Louis, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) thought it best to bring in his own blast from the past. Dan Buffa (@buffa82), the original co-host of this show back when it was Best Dans in Baseball, makes his return after six years away. In a free-wheeling conversation, the guys talk about the return of Albert, the needs of this rotation, what this offense could look like, and Jordan Hicks's spring. Plus, as a nod to the old show, they wrap it up with some TV...


Episode 233: Let’s Talk About Some Birds

With Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) still off on baseball assignment, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) brings in some old friends with a new look. Nate and Ben of Talking About Birds (@TalkAboutBirds) have revived their podcast and are bringing their unique looks at Cardinal baseball back to the masses. The guys talk about all sorts of things, whether it is the future of Jordan Hicks, what the addition of Cory Spangenburg means, and what this strong spring means for the 2022 season. Plus...


Episode 232: Depth Charge

With Allen getting a much-needed day off from baseball activities, Ben Cerutti (Birds on the Black, @stlfanbc7) joins Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) to talk about the initial week of spring training and the initial exhibition game. When can we start wondering about how different Oli Marmol is from Mike Shildt? What bat is still out there that intrigues Mr. Cerutti? Where should Jordan Hicks start the season, how damaging are the injuries to Alex Reyes and Jack Flaherty, and do the Cardinals...


Episode 231: Somebody Finally Found The Key

The lockout is over and baseball is on its way back with spring training games in less than a week. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) is joined by Ben Godar (Cardinals Off Day, @bengodar) to talk about the CBA and some of the provisions in it before shifting their focus to the Cardinals. What are the expectations for the newest Cardinal, Drew VerHagen? Should the Cardinals get Albert Pujols for one last hurrah? Just how good is this team anyway? All that and an update on the Nathan Hale...


Episode 230: Grumpy Old Men

Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) was feeling particularly grumpy about the state of baseball, what with that whole lockout and some of the solutions (like expanded playoffs) to try to fix it, so he got someone he knew was on the same page to join him this week. Alex (Birds on the Black, @alexcards79) might not be as old as Daniel, but the two share a sensibility about the game. How does baseball find a way out of this mess? What will the ramifications be in regards to baseball's future and...


Episode 229: Baseball Is a Mess

The lockout still going. Rule changes seemingly unavoidable. It seems now it is possible to not be romantic about baseball. Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) is joined by Kyle Reis (Birds on the Black, @kyler416) to talk about all that is wrong with the sport right now. Is there any optimism that the season will start on time? How excited are either of these guys for the season right now anyway? There's minor league talk as well, both about how the lockout affects those guys and which guys Kyle...


Episode 228: The J Stands For Just a Chat

Things are still very unsettled in baseball but Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) are glad to be joined by Katie Woo (The Athletic, @katiejwoo) to talk about what is actually happening. The three discuss Katie's first year on the beat, how time no longer has meaning, and some of the best moments of the past season. Then they get into the lockout, whether this week was a step back or there's still hope for an on-time season, and the issues that relate to...


Episode 227: The Birdle Is The Wordle

Is the episode title a cheap effort to tie into the popular word game? Yeah, pretty much. However, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) spends time talking with Brenden Schaeffer (KMOV, @bschaeffer12) and Wordle gets mentioned, so we'll go with it. The two put aside their massive differences to talk about all sorts of baseball topics. Does the movement in the CBA talks portend good things? What will the Cardinals do when the gates open? How does Brenden feel about Paul DeJong and Tommy Edman?...


Episode 226: Eight Is Great

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. In between, there's Hall of Fame voting and what it's...


Episode 225: A Year End Grab Bag

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

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

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

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

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...
