Best Podcast in Baseball 7.09: Change is in the Error
After some technical difficulties, the Best Podcast in Baseball, brought to you by Closets by Design of St. Louis, returns to a regular schedule just in time to determine what's gone awry with the St. Louis Cardinals a few weeks after they had the best record in the National League. Losers of nine of their past 11, swept at Wrigley Field, and 2-5 against the state of Pennsylvania on the road trip -- are changes afoot? St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold and sports columnist Benjamin Hochman dive into the power rankings of changes that must be made, from the lineup to the rotation, the rotation to the bullpen. There is also discussion about when is the right time to make changes, how Dakota Hudson has done as a starter, Carlos Martinez's return as a reliever, and the happy coincidence when bowl of poutine meets a jar of barbecue sauce and wonder appears before our very eyes. The Best Podcast in Baseball is a production of StlToday.com, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Derrick Goold.
