GTBH 12/3/17: All Stanton, All The Time

December 3, 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.  That title is not entirely true, because the Cardinals did do a little more than just continue to circle the Stanton saga.  Aledmys Diaz is no longer a Redbird, getting shipped over the border right at the non-tender deadline.  Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Tara (Bird Seeds, @tarawellman) discuss why he got moved and what it might mean for Diaz.  Then the two get into the Giancarlo Stanton drama and all the twists and turns that go along with it.  How frustrating is it that St. Louis might make the best deal and have the best situation and still not get their guy?  What happens if the deal doesn't happen--what is plan B and will it make anyone happy?  Listen in and find out!
