We start with a week of actual baseball to talk about with Ben Frederickson of stltoday.com. He opinion of the players returning from so much time off- Wainwright, Yadi and the younger guys trying to make a name for themselves. Adam Wainwright is a proven workhorse even just 10 days before his 39th birthday. Ben describes the team and the win last night as scrappy- a term that’s been used for them for years. What is it about them that keeps fighting regardless of the circumstances? Ben’s thoughts on Dylan Carlson’s start too.

Does Binnington get the start in goal tonight for the Blues? Ben says yes. He’s got a fresh chip on his shoulder and might be able to steal a few do-or-die games for the team. We get into the actual entertainment value of the games broadcast. Ben’s less than impressed.

We talk Trevor Bauer’s “Free Joe Kelly” spikes and a realistic opinion on college football’s plans. Listen here:
