Best Podcast in Baseball 5.14: Making the Call on a Closer

10/20/2017
More
For the first time since 1988, the Los Angeles Dodgers have won the National League pennant, and with it ousted the reigning champs, the Chicago Cubs, from October. The Cubs find themselves similar to the Cardinals, just a few weeks later: Out of the postseason and in need of a closer. Let the race begin to see how these two rivals finish games. St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Benjamin Hochman rejoins the conversation with baseball writer Derrick Goold and explores what options are...

A special crossover episode of the Best Podcast in Baseball. St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer and BPIB host Derrick Goold joins Tim McKernan, a local radio legend and founder of InsiderSTL.com, to discuss all things Cardinals, a few things baseball, several things Cubs, and just what is the story behind the red hats on the road and the Han Solo headset. McKernan has launched 'The Tim McKernan Show' podcast, and here he's allowed the interview to be repackaged for the BPIB audience....

BPIB is back, belatedly, but back. Ben Frederickson, the host of such podcasts as Eye on the Tigers, joins St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold to discuss the inevitable end of the Cardinals' 2017 season. The cliff is coming. The chasm between the Cardinals and their rival Cubs is widening. How to bridge the gap? Or, should the Cardinals take seven steps back, yield the division for another year or two, and then snap back to contention -- just as the Cubs did? That's the...

Best Podcast in Baseball: Slip, Sliding Away

8/28/2017
More
Is there such a thing as a 'good loss'? That's the question St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Benjamin Hochman posits as he returns to the co-pilot chair for a brand new episode of the Best Podcast in Baseball. Short answer: Not in baseball. The Cardinals have dropped consecutive series against losing teams and increasingly in danger of becoming one themselves. Along with BPIB host and St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold, Hochman audits the three facets of the Cardinals'...

Best Podcast in Baseball short: 'The one with Chris Carpenter'

8/25/2017
More
HALL OF FAMER, REVISITED: From 2004 to 2012, Chris Carpenter embodied what it means to be a modern ace. But that came at a cost. In this Best Podcast in Baseball short, St. Louis Post-Dispatch and StlToday.com baseball writer Derrick Goold talks with Carpenter about his return to the Cardinals organization -- and that 2011 postseason run that may have sped him toward retirement. Sitting in a dugout before a Grapefruit League this spring, Carpenter and Goold discuss the righthander's famed...

Best Podcast in Baseball 5.10: 'We can't be quiet either'

8/11/2017
More
As both a civic icon and one of St. Louis' ambassadors to the world, are the Cardinals starting to find their voice on social and political issues? Should they? St. Louis Post-Dispatch metro columnist Tony Messenger, an award-winning reporter and opinion-shaper, joins baseball writer Derrick Goold to discuss the Cardinals' place in a changing, hyper-political climate, and whether the Cardinals brand, so deeply rooted and strong in history, gives them a foundation to take a stance on issues...

Best Podcast in Baseball short: 'The one with Jedd Gyorko'

7/28/2017
More
When the Cardinals traded Jon Jay to San Diego to land Jedd Gyorko they got a second baseman (which they already ahead), an infielder under control (which they were soon to have), and power (which they always need). What they actually got was something far more, something even Gyorko didn't expect. A year after leading the team in home runs, Gyorko has become the team's cornerstone at third base and its cleanup hitter. In a brand new BPIB short, St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer...

CSN Chicago's Cubs beat writer Patrick Mooney invites St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold to join his podcast, Cubs Talk, so why not do two podcasts with one recording. Come along for a conversation about the division, the rivals, the managers, Dexter Fowler, and how the Cubs' front office setup gives us a glimpse of the Cardinals' new setup. With a series against the Cardinals at Wrigley Field on the horizon, the Cubs have made their move -- and a move on the standings....

Best Podcast in Baseball reset: Alex Reyes and Carson Kelly at Futures Game

7/7/2017
More
In advance of All-Star Week 2017, a special look back at the 2016 Futures Game and the two standout prospects the Cardinals sent to San Diego: "This week Alex Reyes wowed baseball with his 1 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball and his 101-mph fastball at the annual Futures Game. All Carson Kelly did was provide one of the highlights that will define the game for a few years -- just by providing the would-be home run that was robbed by one of the hometown Padres prospects. But before all of...

Best Podcast in Baseball 5.09: Tommy Pham's Hunger Games

6/29/2017
More
"Need to eat." That's one of the pregame catchphrases -- or mottos, as Cardinals outfielder Tommy Pham says -- that teammates shout during their handshake, clap-slap, high five drills in the dugout. It's a reminder to stay hungry. Or, as Tony La Russa used to say, "Stay greedy." That's the launchpad for a brand new full-length Best Podcast in Baseball, hosted by St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold. Joined by Ben Frederickson, Post-Dispatch and StlToday.com columnist, and...

Best Podcast in Baseball 5.08: The Great Rearrangement

6/16/2017
More
But is it a ... Question mark? Or, exclamation point! In response to an 0-7 road trip, the Cardinals rearranged manager Mike Matheny's coaching staff and, beneath the headlines, sent a clear message: Impatience has arrived. A series loss to Milwaukee only underscores the Cardinals' disappointment with the team they have -- and, in the words of general manager John Mozeliak, the team they did not "envision." In the latest full-length episode of the Best Podcast in Baseball, St. Louis...

Before Scooter Gennett went and rewrote the whole day with his four-homer launch into history, two beat writers who cover teams in the National League Central met in Cincinnati newsroom for the crossover podcast event of the summer. Or at least a close second. C. Trent Rosecrans, of the Cincinnati Enquirer, and Derrick Goold, of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, merged the Reds Beat Podcast and the Best Podcast in Baseball for one hourlong talk on ETAs. When will the Reds arrive as a contender?...

Best Podcast in Baseball reset: 'The one with Paul DeJong'

6/3/2017

A foursome of Cardinals minor-leaguers have announced their presence at spring training with strong performances in the early Grapefruit League games: scrappy Harrison Bader, speedy Magneuris Sierra, resurgent Patrick Wisdom, and Paul DeJong. He's a bit of everything. And that's the point. A third baseman when draft, DeJong has come to his first major-league spring training as a shortstop, and that's where the Cardinals intend to start him at Class AAA. They want to find as many places as...

Best Podcast in Baseball 5.07: Losing a Tripleheader

5/24/2017

Former Cardinals manager Tony La Russa used to refer to a game where he got a key player rest and won the game as "winning a doubleheader." He also would refer to a loss that also cost him a player as "losing a doubleheader." It's been a tricky week for the Cardinals, as the title of this brand new, double-length Best Podcast in Baseball implies. Matt Adams traded. Extra innings lost. Luis Robert signed -- by the White Sox. Post-Dispatch staff writers Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman...

After a runaway road trip that saw the Cardinals welcome the future and outpace the past, the club returns to St. Louis in first place and set to host the team everyone thought would be in first place, the archrival Chicago Cubs. Welcome to the NL Central, where the standings aren't quite what they seem. St. Louis Post-Dispatch writers Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman discuss the Cardinals' 6-0 road trip and an infusion of speed from Tommy Pham and 21-year-old rookie Magneuris Sierra. Do...

Or, Hold On To Your Seat Cushions. In this latest full-length Best Podcast in Baseball, co-hosts Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman, staff writers at The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, discuss how the Lego blocks of the Cardinals' lineup are starting to snap together, and whether there is both the balance and production necessary for the Cardinals' offense to start compensating for some of the ragged defensive play or unsettled bullpen work. The night when seat cushions filled the air back in...
