    Should MLB Send Albert Pujols to the All-Star Game? (Yes)

    Should MLB Send Albert Pujols to the All-Star Game? (Yes)

    It's been reported that the commissioner now has the right to send someone to the All-Star game in recognition of their career accomplishments. Few people in the NL deserve it like Cardinals' legend Albert Pujols. It would be a return to LA, an opportunity for the nation to say goodbye to a legend and a chance for a memorable All-Star moment. JD and Lucas both wholeheartedly agree Rob Manfred should make this happen.
    Also, this team still (desperately) needs pitching. This is being made more evident by a report that Steven Matz's rehab start could become a MLB start against Atlanta on Thursday.

    Cardinals Need Some Pitching Help (JD's Co-Hosting Now!)

    The St. Louis Cardinals, as it stands, are a playoff team. However, that does not mean they are without weakness. This team needs additions to its' pitching staff, and they need to be external. JD Hafron, the show's new co-host, joins the show to break down some options for the Cardinals! Frankie Montas' name gets thrown around a lot, but what about a Madison Bumgarner, Noah Syndergaard or in-Division Foe Luis Castillo?
    Lucas and JD also break down the team's top rookies and discuss the MVP-level play of Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado.

    Who could be Trade Candidates for St. Louis at the Deadline?

    Who could be Trade Candidates for St. Louis at the Deadline?

    Many have said the Cardinals need pitching help, which is true. However, to get help they will have to give something up. Who are some candidates that could be on the move? While the top four prospects likely are staying put, there are some prospects that could be moved. What about Harrison Bader or Tyler O'Neill? Can Junior Fernandez increase trade value or is he staying put?
    We also give an injury update on today's show and what the returning players could mean to the team. ALSO: SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT TO END THE SHOW!

    If it Wasn't Clear Before, It's Clear the Cardinals Need Pitching Now

    If it Wasn't Clear Before, It's Clear the Cardinals Need Pitching Now

    The starting rotation for the St. Louis Cardinals took a hit on Monday with Jack Flaherty going to the IL with a shoulder strain. With his ineffectiveness and another IL stint, it's time to admit the Cardinals need starting pitching help. It's been clear they've needed the bullpen help, but now the Cardinals should seriously consider external help for their staff. This was highlighted after a bad weekend against the Chicago Cubs. How can the Cardinals turn things around against the Miami Marlins? All of this and more discussed on today's show.
