    49. The Last Inning with Alex Crisafulli

    For our 2nd off day of the week, we are so glad to have Friend of the Pod Alex Crisafulli join us. You probably know Alex from the Chirps podcast, as well as his writing at Birds on the Black and Viva El Birdos.
    We banter about many topics related to the historic final seasons from Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina, as well as the maybe final season from Adam Wainwright.

    46. The Albert Pujols Devil Magic continues

    46. The Albert Pujols Devil Magic continues

    It is an off day today, which is the only reason we can assume that Albert Pujols will not hit another home run today.

    We continue to stand in awe of what The Machine is doing, and talk about how this performance fits into the rich history of Cardinals Devil Magic. Then we talk about the returns of Flaherty and Matz, and what we might expect from them in a postseason. In our final main segment, we share our thoughts on the coming rule changes.

    To end things, we answer your questions.

    45. The returns of Pujols and Flaherty

    45. The returns of Pujols and Flaherty

    It’s been two weeks since the last Cardinals Off Day, and in that time, Albert Pujols has hit .429 / .487 / .914 and crushed 5 HRs.

    We talk Pujols in this episode: Both the amazing run he’s on now and the possibility that he might return again next year. From there, we move on to Jack Flaherty, who hopes to rejoin the Cardinals after a final rehab start. Then we dig into the Cardinals outfield in the 2nd half, which has seen 4 players hitting well above average, but Dylan Carlson notably lagging behind.

    Finally, we answer your questions.

    44. More Questions on Flaherty, O'Neill, Burleson and beyond

    Ben Humphrey was lucky enough to be on assignment at Busch Stadium for the fantastic games against the Brewers Saturday and Sunday, so he’s calling in remotely to this episode. We dig back into another full mailbag and answer questions about the outfield depth, the rotation, managerial moves and much more.
