Viva El Birdos editor talks Cardinals topics as pitchers, catchers report to Spring Training

Joe Schwarz, editor of the popular SB Nation Cardinals blog, Viva El Birdos, joined The Ryan Kelley Morning After on Tuesday to discuss myriad of topics surrounding the Redbirds as pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.

Read some excerpts and listen to the full interview below (starts at 24:20):

What do you think of Las Vegas putting the Cardinals win total at 87.5?

“I would put my cash on the over. I’ve liked what the Cardinals have done this off-season. I think a lot of people are due to step up. I’ve been on record for projecting them to get 90 wins this year.”

What offseason moves did you like:

“I think a big part is (Dexter Fowler) being at leadoff and being able to move Carpenter down a bit in the line-up. I think there are a lot of players that are going to bounce back. And the pitching staff wasn’t where we wanted it to be last year…and I think they’re going to bounce back, especially with Lance Lynn coming back and a full season from Alex Reyes.”
