    Episode 142: Medlock on the Mike

    Technical glitches kept Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) from barraging him with too many questions, but the guys were very happy to welcome in Mark Saxon from The Athletic to talk about the current state of the Cardinals.  From the lack of activity to the outfield situation, Mark covers it all with insight and good humor.  Then, after the issues are addressed, Daniel and Allen spend a little time talking about the situation the Cards are in now.  It's a little disjointed but if you've ever wanted much less Daniel and much more Allen, this is your show!

    Episode 141: Trying to Warm Up

    It's Winter Warmup Weekend but that doesn't mean the news is just abundantly flowing.  In fact, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) spent more time than they ever have talking about the Cubs, which just tells you how quiet things are.  Still, WWU at least gets the players in town to talk about things, even if they are in cliches, so the guys discuss Harrison Bader, Tyler O'Neill, Carlos Martinez, and Alex Reyes, among others.  Plus your weekly dose of Nolan Arenado talk!

    Episode 140: Liberating Boredom

    Welcome to Season 6 of Meet Me at Musial!  To kick off what is sure to be a serious season, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) welcome scribe Jeff Jones (Belleville News-Democrat, @jmjones) and there's a trade for the guys to talk about!  Jeff talks about what it is like trying to confirm reports like the ones on Thursday, when the Cards sent Jose Martinez, Randy Arozarena, and a compensatory draft pick to Tampa Bay for Matthew Liberatore, Edgardo Rodriguez, and a lower draft pick.  Does this trade mean anything for Marcell Ozuna?  Is Nolan Arenado more than a pipe dream?  Plus Jeff talks about Winter Warm-up and the Writers' Dinner coming up next weekend.  We're off and running on another year of MMM!

    Episode 139: Wrapping Up Another Season

    While by this time all of the presents under various trees have been unwrapped, Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) go the opposite way, wrapping up not only another baseball season but Season 5 of MMM.  The guys talk about the addition of Kwang Hyun Kim to the Cardinal pitching staff.  What does this mean for Carlos Martinez?  Does adding KK put the pressure on him?  They also talk about the shrinking market for Marcell Ozuna.  Does that mean that he might be re-entering the picture for the Redbirds?  The guys then tackle some Twitter questions and quickly talk about how 2019 will be remembered.  Thanks to everyone that has supported the podcast this year and we hope to do even better in 2020!

    Episode 138: Trying to Find the Excitement

    Episode 138: Trying to Find the Excitement

    It's the Winter Meetings, but Cardinal fans seem to have the post-holiday blues.  Lots of folks aren't feeling the excitement about the 2020 Cardinals and Daniel (C70 At The Bat, @C70) and Allen (Red Dirt Redbird, @amedlock1) can't really blame them.  The guys talk about the defection of Michael Wacha to the Mets before getting into the dull winter the Cards are having while big contracts and player movement is going on all around them.  A couple of big names might change that, but what are the odds of someone like David Price, much less Nolan Arenado? Plus (after an attempt to sign off) the guys talk about the induction of Ted Simmons to the Hall of Fame.  Throw on the Yule Log and settle in for some discussion!

    Bonus: I Have Spoken

    Bonus: I Have Spoken

    It's been a while since we did one of these Star Wars podcasts, so Tina (@ErdrickStorm) and Daniel (@C70) get together to talk about what's new in that galaxy far, far away.  Most of the talk centered around The Mandalorian and no, not all of it was about Baby Yoda.  (Maybe most of it.)  What's working in the show?  How has it become an outing that really seems to have united the Star Wars fanbase?  The two also get into The Rise of Skywalker, which will be on screens in less than a month believe it or not, and a little about whatever movie might be coming in 2022.  No tracking fob needed to find this bounty!

AlexCards ,

Excellent stuff.

Very informative, the hosts are great. I consider this pod is one of the best ways to catch up with whatever may have happened re: Cardinals over the last week.

Good content, but...

Solid content and opinions, but the host is breathing into the mic so much that it makes it really hard to listen to. Please move the mic away from your face or upgrade your mic.

Cardinal talk from two of the best

Podcasting has opened up the door to so many people to start a career broadcasting. Not everyone can do the quality show these guys do. Smart baseball talk and a couple of friendly dudes. What could be better?
