Best Podcast in Baseball 4.20: How Cardinals Nation can cope with these Cubs
We asked. And, goodness, did you answer. Listeners took the wheel of this week's Best Podcast in Baseball due to the sheer volume and excellence of the responses to this question: How are you, a Cardinals fan, coping with the success of the Cubs and possible World Series run? Co-hosts Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman, both writers at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, share the scores of responses they received. Emails include tales of grandfathers, fathers, mothers, friends, and spouses who live for the Cubs, and some who have died without seeing a season like this one on the Northside. The emails, which came from far and wide and even other countries, prompt a series of discussions about issues facing the Cardinals (do they need a new sales pitch?) and Major League Baseball (do the Cubs glorify tanking?). The show goes where the listeners of BPIB takes it, and that makes it one of the most rewarding episodes yet. BONUS: A story from Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS that you have never heard before.
