Daniel sits down with possibly the most famous Cardinal fan on the internet, Will Leitch from Sports on Earth (www.sportsonearth.com). They talk about Will growing up in Illinois and avoiding the pull of the Cubs, the reputation of bloggers today, and then dissect the David Freese trade, which happens almost immediately before their conversation. That also leads to Daniel wishing he was a time traveler to fix the errors he made earlier in the day.
On the eve of the World Series, Daniel sits down again with Christine of Boston Red Thoughts (www.bostonredthoughts.com) and talks about the upcoming games. They go over strengths and weaknesses and why this 2013 version of the Red Sox is so much better than last year's.
To mark the end of an era, Daniel sat down with Pat Lackey of Where Have You Gone, Andy Van Slyke? (www.whygavs.com) to talk about being a Pittsburgh Pirates fan. Pat talks about growing up with a winning Pirates team, only to enter The Void. Daniel and Pat also chat about the 2013 season and what the playoffs mean to Pirate fans.
One of the great things about baseball is all the literature it inspires. No one knows that better than Ron Kaplan, who blogs at Ron Kaplan's Baseball Bookshelf (www.ronkaplansbaseballbookshelf) and is the author of 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read Before They Die. Daniel and Ron talk about how he got into reading baseball books, the different categories that baseball books fall in, and what books just missed the cut.
Given the fact that the subject of this conversation has been blogging for less than a year, styling him as a padawan learner isn't completely a stretch, though he's a talented one if so. Daniel chats with Mike Grabowski (www.cardsconclave.com/redbirdsyellowbat) about growing up in a split Cardinal/Cubs family as well as his jump into blogging. The two also spend time looking forward to the second half of the season and trying to figure out what that may hold for the Cardinals.
Returning after a bit of a break, Daniel sits down with Geoff Goldman, public relations wizard for Fox Sports Midwest. They talk about the double-edged sword that is the rabid Cardinal fanbase, his dark days living in Chicago, and some general thoughts on the team. Plus, Daniel talks about the switch of C70 At The Bat from its dedicated URL to being part of The Cardinal Conclave.
