New, comments

After a brief hiatus, the podcast is back.

It has been now a month since VEB last produced a podcast. We expect to be more consistent in the future. Aaron Schafer (aka the red baron) talks with VEB Managing Editor about the Cardinals moves, non-moves, and potential moves.

Among the players covered: Jedd Gyorko, Jon Jay, Jason Heyward, David Price, Mike Leake, Cliff Lee, Mark Buehrle, Alex Gordon, Justin Upton, Yoenis Cespedes, Stephen Piscotty, Randal Grichuk, Tommy Pham, Matt Adams, Brandon Moss, and Matt Holliday.

Aaron also discusses next years' draft, the Cardinals potential strategies for next year with potentially three top-40 picks, and talks a little about Anthony Garcia, a Cardinals' prospect who could see time in the big leagues next season.

Note: This was my first shot at producing the podcast. Comments and criticisms are welcome.

One error: I stated that Heyward would receive $78 million from the Cubs over the first three seasons if he opts out, which would be $24 million annually. It turns out that $78 million divided by three is $26 million.
