First and foremost a Viva El Birdos Podcast programming note. Typically, we record and publish podcast episodes on Sunday. During the season, we record after the conclusion of the St. Louis Cardinals game. However, next Sunday, the Cardinals host the Detroit Tigers on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball. The night game means that we can't record afterward. Consequently, there will not be a VEB Podcast episode next Sunday. Right now, it looks like we will either record on Saturday after the game or on Thursday after the game.
On VEB Podcast Episode 28, I am joined by VEB Editor and Fangraphs writer Craig Edwards to discuss: Carlos Martinez's struggles of late; Tyler Lyons, Marco Gonzales, Jaime Garcia, and the rotation; Matheny's bullpen usage pace; and Matt Carpenter's health.
