S1E20: CwC with Kyle Reis - The Dirty Shildt Episode
Kyle Reis and I have a special "Dirty Shildt" Episode of Conversations with Cerutti tonight to mostly talk about Mike Shildt being fired, potential reasons, and potential replacements. We also discuss plans for what used to be the "Dirty Thirty-Five" and is, at least temporarily, "The Dirty Flirty."
Chirps - Episode 123 - Philosophical Differences
Mike Shildt is OUT.
And like... WHAT?!?!
Alex and Tara try to sort out the immediate aftermath of the shocking Cardinals news...and then cool things off with a delightful trip through the Cardinals Hall of Fame by way of Alex's Chirp of the Week.
Chirps - Episode 122 - Let's Get Wild!
It's Wild Card Day! That's right, the Cardinals are back in the postseason and they're (yet again) facing off against the Dodgers. In LA. Waino vs Scherzer. Win or go home.
We're not nervous, are you nervous?
Mike Shannon's not nervous. But he IS the star of the Chirp of the Week, because we couldn't let him retire without a tip of the cap from Birds on the Black!
Chirps - Episode 121 - A Real - Life Playoff Team
They did it! They really did it! The 2021 Cardinals are a real-life playoff team, and no one really understands how!
This week, Tara and Alex bask in the 17-game-win-streak-plus-postseason-clincher glow and talk about what's happened, how it's happened, and who has been the most impressive as the Cardinals speed-wrote their way into the history books with a magical month of September. But is the streak enough? Is the Wild Card game winnable?
And, we play a game of Player A vs Player B in Alex's Chirp of the Week to wrap things up.
PaD - Season 4 - The Just The Tip Episode
Welcome back to Prospects after Dark!! Sure, let's talk about the Cardinals. And, hey, the Cardinals system, too. TASTE ME
Chirps - Episode 120 - Is This Real Life?!?
What is even happening anymore? Are the Cardinals #good? Is this all a dream? Are the playoffs really in sight? Is that... enough?
Tara and Alex are back this week after taking some time to soak it all in. The Cardinals are playing like they haven't all year, and they try to explain what it's like to watch it happen in real time.
Plus, Alex takes us back to winnings streaks of yesteryear to remind us that not all teams win in bunches... but when a team does, it's loads of fun.
