It's almost the All-Star Break, which means it's a great time to have a roundtable of podcasters to talk about the season so far and what might be on the way.
Joining Daniel today are stalwarts Dan Buffa, who can be found on Dose of Buffa over at Blog Talk Radio, and Tara Wellman, best known for her video blog Bird Seeds that's over on YouTube. Along with Dan and Tara, the sisters behind STL CardGals, Laura and Holly, make their debut with the group.
Plenty of discussion about the fate of Trevor Rosenthal, who were the first half surprises and disappointments, and what should John Mozeliak do at the trading deadline. It's a great conversation so we hope you enjoy!
On the eve of the 2016 regular season, Daniel gets a chance to talk with the man that goes by StlCardsCards on Twitter. The two talk about how CC became a Cards fan and how easily he could have been on the wrong side of the rivalry. There's talk about Twitter, how it's used, why it's read, and how he came up with the perfect blog title. Then the two turn their attention to the 2016 Cardinal roster, going over the strengths and weaknesses in preparation for the first game in Pittsburgh.
For the fifth straight season, Daniel sits down with Jamie Pogue, the Cardinals' bullpen catcher, to talk about the season just past and the season to come. They talk about the starting rotation, whether a loss to the Cubs means more than other losses, and whether Jamie knows any Korean.
After a changing of the guard at the biggest Cardinal blog out there, Daniel sits down with new Viva El Birdos head guy Craig Edwards. They talk about Craig's sabermetric background, filling the shoes of Ben Humphrey, and the offseason plans of the Cardinals.
70 meets 70! Daniel gets a chance to talk to the Patron Pitcher of the Blog Tyler Lyons. They talk about pitching a no-hitter, getting the call, and just what that number means.
