Best Podcast in Baseball 5.06: Building Speed
After a runaway road trip that saw the Cardinals welcome the future and outpace the past, the club returns to St. Louis in first place and set to host the team everyone thought would be in first place, the archrival Chicago Cubs. Welcome to the NL Central, where the standings aren't quite what they seem. St. Louis Post-Dispatch writers Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman discuss the Cardinals' 6-0 road trip and an infusion of speed from Tommy Pham and 21-year-old rookie Magneuris Sierra. Do they really create the "roster angst" that permeates discussion? Within this podcast, the 40-man roster is discussed, Sierra's development is discussed, the Cubs being the Cardinals and the Cardinals being the Cubs is discussed, and -- as a special perk -- there's a movie review. BPIB's official "freelance movie reviewer" opines of "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2." And finally, Hochman tells a good joke.
