Brenden Schaeffer dives in on the John Mozeliak end of season press conference and touches on the most pressing topics from Wednesday in Cardinals nation. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bschaeffer12/message
Bernie talks about how the Cardinals paid the price in the postseason for being over-reliant on Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado, and to a lesser extent Albert Pujols. Bernie thinks John Mozeliak still doesn't quite comprehend the impact spending the extra money on a bat like Kyle Schwarber would make versus cheaper acquisitions like Corey Dickerson.
When asked at the end-of-season preview/review press conference whether he had any frustration with the Cardinals lack of wins and appearances in the National League Championship Series since 2014, John Mozeliak pushed back: "That's your narrative," the president of the baseball operations told St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports columnist Benjamin Hochman. So, let's discuss narrative. In a brand new edition of the Best Podcast in Baseball, Hochman joins baseball writer Derrick Goold to discuss the facts behind his "narrative" and what Mozeliak's comments about adding a catcher, adding a bat, and adding payroll say about the Cardinals' willingness to augment their time-tested strategy in order to hang with the high-spending contenders in the National League. One answer? Add a "shirsey-seller," says Hochman. That is a player who will sell merchandise the day after he joins the team. Is there a "shirsey worthy" player out there? BPIB takes a look before concluding with a conversation about the coming changes at coaches and whether it's a trend that should alarm the Cardinals. The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored by Closets by Design of St. Louis, is a production of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, StlToday.com, and Derrick Goold.
