Because Nick & I talked less than flatteringly about Mark Reynolds, he homered today (thank goodness).

VEB and Beyond the Box Score writer Nick Lampe joined editor-in-chief Ben Humphrey on the Viva El Birdos podcast to discuss St. Louis Cardinals baseball. The pair recorded the episode early Sunday afternoon, before the Cardinals defeated the Giants in the rubber match of the clubs' three-game series on the bay. Discussion included the following topics:

  • Where is Peter Bourjos?
  • When will the various injured St. Louis outfielders return to game action?
  • How might the various injured Cardinals flycatchers returning to game action impact the postseason roster?
  • Which position players might make the postseason roster if all are healthy?
  • Will the Cardinals keep the pedal to the metal with respect to Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez's workloads due to the closeness of the division race? Does this mean Martinez is unlikely to start in the postseason?
  • Are there any likely September call-ups that will have an impact on the Central race?
