Here are the stories from the weekend at VEB:

Podcast - Tyler Kinzy, Heather Simon, and Tanner Puckett talked about the rumors surrounding the Cardinals in the most recent Viva El Birdos podcast.

The next leader - John LaRue wrote about all the factors that will weigh out as the Cardinals decide their manager after the 2018 season.
