SEGMENT 1 – Show Open: The Cardinals win Game 4 of the NLCS to take a 3-1 series, Tim and the guys reflect on the series that the Redbirds were not able to clinch after having a 3-1 lead and looking at the convenient trouble with the Dodgers’ lineup.
SEGMENT 2 – Brian Kenny: Looking at both League Championship Series, more possible pitching matchups for the NLCS if necessary, batting averages in a short series. Wondering what the crowd will be at Dodgers Stadium for a 1pm (PT) first pitch start, Mary Hart of Entertainment Tonight moving from seat to seat at NLCS games, Matt Holliday’s giant Game 4 home run and an update on Mike Lee’s birthday party and the odds for the rest of the NLCS with the Dodgers probably being the favorite over the next couple of games due to the pitching matchups.
SEGMENT 3 – Joe Strauss: A bueno morning in Los Angeles, the decisions of Mike Matheny paying off in Game 4, the surprise of Shane Robinson going deep off the bench, Hanley Ramirez batting third in the Dodgers’ lineup with the rib injury and Joe thinks the Cardinals Game 4 victory essentially puts them in the World Series, the preference of the Cardinals facing the Boston Red Sox or Detroit Tigers should they finish off the Dodgers, the new national perspective/sense of the Cardinals along with their ‘Best Fans in Baseball’, getting back to the Beltran/Puig misunderstanding and more Tinder talk.
SEGMENT 4 – Jeff Passan: An explanation why folks outside ‘Cardinal Nation’ hate us, Matt Holliday being the key for the Cardinals’ success, comparing the injury-riddled Dodgers to the 2012 San Francisco Giants, pitching in the ALCS, the thought that the AL side looks more evenly matched and nit-wittery.
SEGMENT 5 – An article from Los Angeles about how the best team does not always win, how close winning and losing has been throughout the postseason, who the favorite is in the MLB Playoffs, back to nit-wittery and Joe still going through puuberty at 34.
