    Winter Beatings

    Winter Beatings

    The offseason is in full boring mode, so it's time to take a look back at 2022. How did the newest additions do? What went well? What can we expect from Matz? What went poorly, besides everything about the catching position? Is the defense under appreciated? 2022 was an all time great season for the Cardinals, and we love to talk about it.

    Goldy Locks

    Goldy and Pujols take home some more hardware, and the Cardinals make a few more moves. There are still some wide open questions about what direction the Cardinals will go this off-season, especially with the Brewers possibly tanking. What will the Cardinals do at catcher? Should they give Bellinger a chance? Are the Angels actually making smart moves? The offseason has only just started!

    Catcher In Our Eyes

    The Hot Stove is LIT! What will Connor Thomas' role be in 2023 after his strong AFL performance? Will Jordan Walker break camp with the team? Should the Cardinals bring back Matt Carpenter? If they do, can he keep the mustache? What are the Cardinals going to do about the catcher position? There are so many options, and the off-season is just getting started!

    Holliday Hamm

    Matt Holliday is BACK and we are EXCITED. How will he adjust to the role? Why did they decide to cancel the World Series? Should the Cardinals sign Jon Hamm and/or Trea Turner? Can we predict who will win the major awards? It may be the off-season, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to talk about!

    Keep Nolan, Nolan, Nolan

    Nolan Arenado is BACK baby, and though we are slightly confused by the decision, we couldn't be more excited! Now, what will the Cardinals do this off-season? How will they spend their extra cash? Can anyone, ever, remember Tommy Edman? Are the Phillies gonna do it? We discuss this and so much more!

    doggonit, mad dog gone

    For probably the first time ever, big news broke right BEFORE this episode was recorded! How will the Cardinals handle their now vacant coaching staff? Do we know anything more about Arenado? How many Gold Gloves will the Cardinals win? Waino is back baby, and we still have so much to talk about!

Finally an entertaining, but to the point Cardinals podcast! I love the realistic positivity about our upcoming team & season. I’m a busy teacher mom who lives across the country from St Louis. I watch almost every game, but don’t always have time to keep up with the off field news. This is going to be perfect to listen to on my commutes. Thanks so much!

Spooky Good

I really enjoy this show. I am usually too busy with other life stuff to keep up on all the team happenings. Ben and Nate keep me informed on the Cards and other league news and keep it positive and fun throughout, including silly trivia games in each episode. I was bummed when their prior podcast ended. So glad they’re back at it.

Well Explained for Rock Dwellers

As someone who has lived under a rock with no birds present for years they do an excellent job of making me aware of the most pertinent Cardinal facts. They really do paint a beautiful picture of what it would be like if I could actually take time out of my day to baseball and bird watch.
