Best Podcast in Baseball 5.04: A Clockwork Red

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Mon, Apr 24, 2017


After the Cardinals' series victory in Milwaukee, the NL Central is a mosh pit of teams with eight, nine, or 10 wins. What do the standings really tell us, and are there any early indicators of what team's record is misleading? That's the question that opens the latest full-length episode of the Best Podcast in Baseball. Co-hosts Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman, of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and StlToday.com, discuss the stat that is an early barometer of long-term success, the confidence level of the five Cardinals starters driving that stat, and how the Cardinals' precision-crafted roster has to mesh like clockwork or their attempt to contend will run slow before running out. Stay for the end and an Enos Slaughter story that you may never have heard before. Unless you bought Goold's book. Then you know it. Unless you skipped that chapter. The audio version is better. It's shorter.

Best Podcast in Baseball 5.03: Paving the Road to Oh

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Sun, Apr 09, 2017


During the same week the baseball stuck to the catcher, the Cardinals stuck a first baseman in left field and found themselves stuck in a bullpen quandary. It's not even tax day, and there are already numerous sticky storylines involving the 2017 Cardinals. In this brand new full-length episode of BPIB, co-hosts Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman dissect the week that was, to see if it was a microcosm of weeks to come. And in this very coming week, the Cards will unveil Trevor Rosenthal ... but which Rosenthal will we see? No longer a closer, is he a 'Fixer'? And how does he balance out the bullpen? After the podcast, the boys prepare to hit the road. And Derrick readies for an extra-special trip to cover the Cardinals in the Bronx, but not because he'll be reunited with Pete Kozma.

Best Podcast in Baseball 5.02: The Commitments

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Tue, Apr 04, 2017


In the span of three days at the start of the 2017 season, there were three major commitments made in St. Louis: A three-year extension for Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, a six-year contract for right fielder Stephen Piscotty, and one a little closer to home for BPIB co-host Benjamin Hochman. With that as the narrative thread of this full-length episode, recorded at a St. Louis-area coffee shop (roll that beautiful bean grinder audio), explores the core the Cardinals have committed to and how it compares to the supernova-laden core the Cubs have. Can the star of a team not be a star at all, but a stat? Introducing your MVP ... OBP. And why does it seem we -- media, fans, culture -- are so consumed by What's Next when what really matters for the 2017 Cardinals is What's Now. Can't stand the rain? Take the Best Podcast in Baseball with you to the river, to destination anywhere, even to the dark end of the street. This podcast will post in the midnight hour.

BPIB Special: From Hornsby to Molina, a Cardinals 125th Anniversary Lineup

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Wed, Mar 29, 2017


For this year's 2017 Cardinals Baseball Season Preview Section in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, baseball writers Rick Hummel and Derrick Goold were charged with making an all-time lineup, drawing from the 125 years of Cardinals baseball. This podcast captures their decisions, their research, and their negotiations to complete the lineup that will appear in the April 2, 2017 edition of the Post-Dispatch. Three position players were obvious, even if their positions weren't, and two positions elicited the most debate. Join Hall of Fame journalist Hummel and BPIB co-host Goold this podcast special -- and email your own 125th anniversary Cardinals lineup to dgoold@post-dispatch.com for use in future podcasts.

Best Podcast in Baseball 5.01: The Peter (Kozma) Principle

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Wed, Mar 15, 2017


In the Season 5 preview of the Best Podcast in Baseball, StlToday.com and St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold bids farewell to StlToday.com columnist Benjamin Hochman from Florida and welcomes in a guest appearance from KMOV.com lead baseball writer J.J. Bailey. With less than three weeks remaining before the end of spring training, the trio discuss the revelations of spring and the creeping concerns about the 2017 Cardinals that are starting to surface. Although Mark Ellis and Pete Kozma are long gone from the Cardinals' clubhouse, the lessons from their presence persist. No player knows that better than Kolten Wong, who may have to be a Kozma to avoid an Ellis. Laced throughout this episode is the discussion of stats, including what spring stats really mean and what stats really matter for each individual Cardinals starter. There is also a bigly -- we mean huge -- announcement at the end of the episode. (This episode features minimal singing.)

Best Podcast in Baseball short: 'The one with Paul DeJong'

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Thu, Mar 09, 2017


A foursome of Cardinals minor-leaguers have announced their presence at spring training with strong performances in the early Grapefruit League games: scrappy Harrison Bader, speedy Magneuris Sierra, resurgent Patrick Wisdom, and Paul DeJong. He's a bit of everything. And that's the point. A third baseman when draft, DeJong has come to his first major-league spring training as a shortstop, and that's where the Cardinals intend to start him at Class AAA. They want to find as many places as possible for his glove so that when his bat is ready they have the spot that matters most -- in the lineup. DeJong, a graduate of Illinois State, was on a pre-med track when he realized baseball was a possible profession. In this BPIB short, St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold talks positioning, Ozzie Smith, exit velocity, and chemistry with one of the Cardinals' most-intriguing prospects.

Best Podcast in Baseball 4.29: License to Thrive

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Tue, Mar 07, 2017


What can we make of the Cardinals strong showing so far in exhibition games? Come along for the ride though Muck City and other locales along State Highway 80 in Florida as St. Louis Post-Dispatch writers Derrick Goold and Benjamin Hochman sift through the past two weeks of Cardinals spring training, from the injuries that have emerged, to wins that have stacked up, and to the prospects who have shined. While their rental car zips through a hotbed of Florida football, the co-hosts predict the ERAs of the Cardinals' five starters, touch again on clubhouse culture (is the vibe that good? why?), and offer a warning of some pothole ahead for the Cardinals. Hint: They usually need it at the end of any journey. Enjoy the Year 4 finale of the BPIB because season five is just around the corner.

The Rick Ankiel Interview: A special Best Podcast in Baseball

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Wed, Feb 22, 2017


On March 9, 2005, on the same day he was supposed to start a B-game in Jupiter, Fla., Rick Ankiel instead walked into manager Tony La Russa's office and abruptly retired. What happened next became baseball lore. In this special BPIB -- a companion piece to an article that appears in The St. Louis Post-Dispatch -- baseball writer Derrick Goold talks with Ankiel and Yahoo! Sports baseball writer Tim Brown about their forthcoming book, "The Phenomenon: Pressure, the Yips, and the Pitch that Changed My Life." In it, Ankiel recounts his story, how he reached the majors as a comet, burning bright as a teen and then coming undone during a playoff appearance in 2000. Sitting outside the Cardinals clubhouse Ankiel once called home, he and Brown talk about the process of writing the book, why it feels like two separate lives that Ankiel lived, and of course that period of time, back in 2005, when Ankiel retired his "snapdragon" curve ... and picked up a bat.

Best Podcast in Baseball 4.28: The Reyes Repercussions

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Thu, Feb 16, 2017


Recorded in Jupiter, Fla., before a live studio audience of birds, ballplayers, mowers, and other spring training noises, Post-Dispatch baseball writers Rick Hummel and Derrick Goold map where the Cardinals go after losing their top prospect before he throws a pitch. Alex Reyes' Tommy John surgery and absence from the 2017 season sets the stage for a series of questions that the Cardinals must answer here in Jupiter. Pinch-hitting as co-host Hummel offers a surprise pick for a sleeper impact player, and BPIB regular Goold quizzes him on this, his 40th spring training covering the Cardinals for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Forts and Ports are discussed. Well, negotiated.

Best Podcast in Baseball 4.27: 'Reconcile by Winning'

Author: Derrick Goold Author: &Author: Benjamin Hochman of the Post-Dispatch
Mon, Feb 06, 2017


In the span of four days, two major news events greeted the Cardinals and will shape them for years to come. One by addition, the other by subtraction. St. Louis Post-Dispatch writers Derrick Goold and Ben Frederickson, a clutch BPIB pinch hitter, detail the week that was, from Major League Baseball's commissioner imposing unprecedented fines on the Cardinals for a former executive's illegal hacking of Houston internal database to the team signing Carlos Martinez to record $51-million extension. The penalty will sap the Cardinals of two picks in the upcoming draft and limit their access to amateur talent for a year. The promise to Martinez could keep him with the team for seven years, counting on him to blossom in the ace. The true impact of both events won't be clear for several years, but one thing is: For the Cardinals to overcome the bruise of the hacking scandal they must, as Mizzou basketball player Kim English once said, 'reconcile by winning.' That starts now. Spring training is nigh.
