    Mailbag Part One: Where's Carlson Playing and Who Is Stepping Up?

    Mailbag Part One: Where's Carlson Playing and Who Is Stepping Up?

    You all submitted some great questions for Lucas to answer, the first one being where is Dylan Carlson going to play on opening day? This question has a couple of different layers to it, as maybe the Cardinals make some moves to free up some outfield space. Maybe the DH is in the NL, opening up some playing time. Bottom line, Carlson will be an everyday player in 2021, regardless of what position he's playing. Lucas wraps up the show by giving his prediction on who is going to step up in 2021 to help the offense.

    Stove Remains Ice Cold For Cards

    Stove Remains Ice Cold For Cards

    More free agent signings in the past number of days for teams like the Blue Jays and Los Angeles Angels has Lucas frustrated. The St. Louis Cardinals are yet to make any major-league-level signings or trades as Spring Training draws ever nearer. While this team might be able to compete for a NL Central title in 2021, this team as it stands will have a very tough time in October. Lucas does a rare rant of an episode as he explains his frustration with the Cardinals' front office.

    Molina Might Retire While Mike Shannon IS Retiring

    Molina Might Retire While Mike Shannon IS Retiring

    Two Cardinal legends are in the news this week, one for announcing his retirement and one for announcing he would consider retiring. Cardinal catcher Yadier Molina said he would "consider retirement" if he wasn't given the right offer. Meanwhile, Mike Shannon will stop broadcasting games after this season, his 50th in the Cardinal broadcast booth. Lucas reflects on the two legends, and shares why it might be better for the Cardinals if Yadi retires.

    Arbitration Breakdown

    Arbitration Breakdown

    The St. Louis Cardinals have signed contracts with Alex Reyes and Harrison Bader, avoiding arbitration with both of them. Reyes will get $900,000 while Bader will get $2 million in 2021. The Reyes deal could be a steal if he pitches to his skill level, while the Cardinals are betting on Bader to have a fantastic year. St. Louis also signed No. 47 international prospect Adari Grant. Finally, Lucas discusses what DJ Lemahieu's deal could mean for Kolten Wong.

    Mini Mailbag Tuesday On Peralta and the Slow Central

    Mini Mailbag Tuesday On Peralta and the Slow Central

    On today's show, Lucas answers YOUR questions! Is David Peralta a good fit for the St. Louis Cardinals? Would he rather trade for Peralta or Andrew Benintendi? And why aren't the Cardinals taking advantage of a weak NL Central? It's also a good thing that the commissioner (yes, Rob Manfred did something good) announced that Spring Training is officially on schedule and there is a 162-game season planned for 2021.

Pretty Good

I’ve really enjoyed this podcast since it started back up. My only problem is is that it seems you try to talk so fast. It would be better if you could slow down just a little. I have checked the speed on my phone thinking I might have made it faster accidentally but it is just you talking fast. Other than that it has been great and keep up the good work!
