Swope’s Picks: Episode 3 – The 2011 Cardinals season

2011 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals

We flash back to 2011 the relive the chaos of the Cardinals season that preceded Game 6 and the World Series championship. We flash back to the first week of the season in 2011, the morning after the Rasmus trade. More likely the team just falls apart completely than to make up the deficit in the standings. Another kick in the balls loss. TLR with questionable late inning management. Doug is a fan of David Freese. Cal May asks TLR about a fire in the dugout following the worst loss of the regular season, TLR leaves Garcia in too long (again), national media narrative of TLR misses the mark, what in the hell happened in the bottom of the 8th inning of Game 5 of the 2011 World Series? TLR’s explanation for Phonegate has to be heard to be believed. Tim McKernan joins to give his perspective. Mash-up features┬áJohn Mozeliak and Vin Skully.
