Every week, two of the Best Fans in Baseball (TM) bring you all the news and analysis you need about the St. Louis Cardinals. A week ago, the Cardinals sat 1.5 games clear in the postseason picture. Today, they played a meaningless game and went home afterwards. It was a miserable week against the Brewers and Cubs and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Tara (Birds on the Black, @tarawellman) are here to look at what happened and what's to come. How does the end of this season affect what is to come this winter? What does the club do with Adam Wainwright? Should the front office stick to the plan or is it time to revisit that plan? Why did so many players do better after leaving St. Louis? All this and plenty more in a double-length episode that will hopefully tide you over until the dynamic duo return in a couple of weeks.
