Gateway to Baseball Heaven: A St. Louis Cardinals Podcast

GTBH 5/21/17: A Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Week

May 21, 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.  This week, Daniel Shoptaw (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Tara Wellman (Bird Seeds, @tarawellman) are left reeling by losses on and off the diamond.  Even with fabulous starting pitching, the Cardinals only managed to go 1-4 against the Red Sox and Giants, with the most egregious loss coming at the legs of Matt Carpenter.  Matt Adams was dealt to Atlanta, and while the two are sad to see him go, it did seem inevitable and they wish him the best in Atlanta.  The Cardinals also came up short in adding the talented Luis Robert to their minor league system.  Is there a fundamental flaw in the front office's approach to these situations?  All that and discussing the mystery that is the roster construction, so sit back and enjoy!
