GTBH 9/24/17: Danging Hope Before Tearing It Away

September 24, 2017

Every week, two of the Best Fans in Baseball (TM) bring you all the news and analysis you need about the St. Louis Cardinals.  After a run through Cincinnati and a comeback win against the Pirates, the Cards looked on the brink of adding another chapter to their incredible history by surviving a sweep by the Cubs and still getting into October.  Two losses against Pittsburgh took care of much of that and while the thread is still there, there are strong odds no playoff baseball will be in the cards, pun intended.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Tara (Bird Seeds, @tarawellman) talk about the frustration that was this series, including Seung-hwan Oh coming into a crucial situation and the fact that John Gant was starting a game in a playoff race in the first place.

Beyond that, the two discuss the recent Q&A that team owner Bill DeWitt had with Derrick Goold and what to make of Adam Wainwright's outing against Pittsburgh.  What does that mean for the 2018 rotation?  All that and much, much more!
