St. Louis Cardinals: Redbird Rants Podcast episode 8 preview


Join the Redbird Rants podcast on Monday, June 19 at 9:30 pm CST for another LIVE episode as we talk anything and everything St. Louis Cardinals.

As the St. Louis Cardinals use Monday’s off day to regroup from a series loss over the weekend to the Baltimore Orioles, the Redbird Rants podcast will be recording episode 8 live on BlogTalkRadio at 9:30 pm CST.

The Cardinals lost three of four to the Milwaukee Brewers and two of three to the Orioles after sweeping the Philadelphia Phillies last weekend. They’re back to six games below .500, which is where they were at the height of their recent seven-game losing streak.

If there’s any good news, its that the Cardinals visit Philadelphia for another three-game series against the Phillies beginning Tuesday. But rather than focusing on the upcoming series, Tito Rivera, Nathan Grime, and Trevor Hooth will take a look at both the current trends and coming months in tonight’s show. Here’s a preview of what to expect:

More from St Louis Cardinals News

  • Updating the season outlook: what is there to take away from the series losses to the Brewers and Orioles, and is a shot at the postseason slipping away?
  • Current trends: what part of the team gives you the most confidence, and what part of the team concerns you the most?
  • The Cardinals’ role at the trade deadline: how likely is it at this point that the Cardinals will go all-in as buyers? Who should they target if they are indeed buyers? If they are sellers, who on the major-league team has the most value? What prospects in the organization should be untouchable in either scenario?
  • Upcoming roster talk: what happens if/when Kolten Wong and Randal Grichuk return? Does Michael Wacha have a future in the bullpen this season? Who is the next prospect that should get the call-up?
  • Favorite MLB ballpark to visit other than Busch Stadium
