GTBH 6/17/18: Be Excellent To One Another

June 17, 2018

Every week, two of the Best Fans in Baseball (TM) bring you all the news and analysis you need about the St. Louis Cardinals.  Fair warning, folks, this is what we call a rant episode.  This week, Dexter and Aliya Fowler were basically driven from Twitter by awful and disparaging comments.  Tara (Bird Seeds, @tarawellman) kicks off the rant against these fans and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) tags in from time to time.  It's baseball, folks.  These are human beings.  Let's treat them as such, shall we?

After that, Daniel gets started on the news that Greg Holland is going to return to the team in Philadelphia even though nothing in his minor league results seem to indicate this is a good idea.  There's also the general lack of offense, whether changing the manager or the hitting coach would be a good idea, whether players have too much information (or, more accurately, aren't getting well-processed information) and whether there's too much of a "let's go try" rather than a "let's go win" mentality.

You know it's a tough show when the bullpen could be the highlight of it, but there are at least some signs that there are more options out there than Bud Norris and Jordan Hicks, so we'll count that a positive sign.  If you like the show, be sure to give us a rating on iTunes and let us know what you think!
