Seeing Red

Talking St. Louis Cardinals baseball with two of the best in the business, longtime St. Louis sports journalist Bernie Miklasz and baseball writer and Deadspin founder Will Leitch.


Ep. 27 - Are The Cardinals The Wild Card Favorites At This Point?

We're talking about the Cardinals current playoff odds, how they continued to roll despite quiet home-stands from Matt Carpenter and Yadier Molina, and how Shildt's ability to manage can overcome mini-droughts like that. And why the entire operation from front office down to players is just running smoother with a guy like Shildt in charge of the team. Plus, who do you go with to start a Wild Card Game?

Past Episodes

We're talking about how since the Cardinals made a managerial change, they have the best record in the National League. And had it not been for a double play or a closed roof, this team would be on an 8-game winning streak.
00:36:01 8/12/2018
We're taking a look at the difference Mike Shildt is making as Cardinals manager. Might it be the reason this team has put together their series wins lately?
00:53:23 8/5/2018

00:51:21 7/15/2018
We're talking what a lone All-Star selection says about the state of the Cardinals and a frustrated fan base. We're also diving into the Manny Machado talks, and why St. Louis isn't in the running.
00:55:30 7/8/2018
We're talking another awful series by the Cardinals and the fans' frustration. Also, John Mozeliak's quotes on Dexter Fowler, what it means, why he's a scapegoat, and how the comments come across cheap.
00:52:59 7/1/2018
We're talking the weekend split in Milwaukee, the mediocrity of the NL keeping the Cardinals in the mix, why Bernie's not celebrating the Cardinals staying in because of other team's flaw. Also, the idea of Dakota Hudson not being put on the 40-man roster and keeping him away from the Majors.
00:51:01 6/24/2018
We're talking if Mike Matheny and John Mabry's jobs are in jeopardy, how John Mozeliak and the front office are starting to feel the heat, the lack of urgency from the owner on down, and the frustration of the fan base. We also dive into the mind-boggling Greg Holland recall, and the question of the day on Harrison Bader
00:00:00 6/17/2018
Bernie and Will discuss the 3-3 week against the Marlins and Reds, and the bizarre Cardinals season that continues. Both Will and Bernie got fired up talking about Carlos Martinez returning too soon and struggling despite making only one rehab start. Will points out the mixed messages Matheny sends with guys like Reyes and Martinez vs. Wainwright. Despite all the frustration with the Cardinals, this team remains in the hunt, and Fangraphs has them at 58% to make the postseason, hosting the Brewers in the NL Wild Card game. However, the coming weeks will determine a lot. They wrap with a question about Tony La Russa and him sticking around in baseball though not in St. Louis. The two also share memories of Red Schoendienst.
