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 is the 50th GTBH since the new format launched but Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Tara (Bird Seeds, @tarawellman) are spending it talking about #52. Michael Wacha spent Sunday thrilling the faithful, taking a no-hitter into the ninth before coming up short of the feat last performed by the legendary Bud Smith. Even without that piece of history, Wacha's been incredibly strong of late. Can that continue? And could that mean he's pitching himself into being an attractive trade target?
The pitching discussion continues with the pending return of Carlos Martinez--hopefully for more than one start--and the brief stop Alex Reyes made as an active major league pitcher. The offense doesn't get entirely neglected, though, as the suddenly-hot Marcell Ozuna gets a little discussion as well. So much stuff we couldn't cram everything into 30 minutes!
