Meet Me At Musial: A St. Louis Cardinals Podcast

"Meet me at Musial" is a trademark of St. Louis, where the Musial statue is a rallying point. Every week, two far-flung fans virtually "meet at Musial" to go over the latest in Cardinal news and discussion. Daniel Shoptaw (@C70, from Arkansas) and Allen Medlock (@amedlock1, Oklahoma) prove that great Cardinal talk can come anywhere in Cardinal Nation when you meet up to discuss your favorite team.

There wasn't much Cardinal baseball to talk about over the last week but Daniel (@C70) and Allen (@amedlock1) are here anyway. The guys discuss the All-Star Game, more in theory than the actual game that happened. Should things be rearranged for more optimal exposure? What makes connections to fans more, the game or the derby? After all that, the guys dive into what's going on with the Cardinals, starting with the 2024 draft. How q...

You know it's a weird week when the team goes from four games out to 5.5 within the span of ten hours. Daniel (@C70) and Allen (@amedlock1) talk about the brief Royals series and how that shook out. After that, they get into the trade deadline talk, discussing what the Cardinals might need and what they might give up. There's a discussion of the All-Star Game and Allen's contention Ryan Helsley should have had company in Texas. The...

Only doing one show a week means that Daniel (@C70) and Allen (@amedlock1) don't have to worry about load management, though apparently their technology isn't at the same level. Even with some technical difficulties, the guys get into how so many times we are hearing about unavailable relievers. Does that plus the strong run of Andre Pallante shift the trade deadline discussion? There are bats returning soon and no obvious place to...

As of this recording, the Cardinals are 41-39, meaning the halfway point of the season is upon us. Daniel (@C70) and Allen (@amedlock1) talk about how things are looking for a club that's playing well enough to be a playoff team. How concerning is last night's blowout loss to the Reds? What are the Cardinals thinking with the promotion of Gordon Graceffo? What will the Cardinals be looking for at the trade deadline and how will the...

Thursday night's game at Rickwood Field was a moving and special experience and nothing that Daniel (@C70) and Allen (@amedlock1) are qualified to do full justice to. They talk about it anyway, though, as well as the other ceremonial games that MLB has been having as well. After that, they shift to the Cardinals with the debut of Adam Kloffenstein leading the way. How is the club going to use him? Should we be concerned about Lance...

As is their tradition, the Cardinals invited bloggers and podcasters up for a game last weekend and both Daniel (@C70) and Allen (@amedlock1) were in attendance. Now back in their homes in Arkansas and Oklahoma, they break down what John Mozeliak had to say in the Q&A. When will Jordan Walker return? Is it surprising that the club isn't fond of the outside labs and when will they get their own? What's Mo thinking as the trade deadl...

After an off day, the Cardinals went to Philadelphia Friday night and dropped a close one to the Phillies. Unlike some other losses this year, it didn't fill Daniel (@C70) and Allen (@amedlock1) with as much fear and trembling as some others. The current good run of Cardinal baseball has eased some tensions, but for how long? The guys talk about load management, Oli Marmol's cooling seat, and what has to happen before 2023 stops li...

High school baseball season is over which means the band is back together. Daniel (@C70) welcomes in Allen (@amedlock1) after 20 weeks of great guests to see where things stand both with him and the Cardinals. After an update about Tulsa Hale, the guys get into a resurgent Cardinals team that still has its flaws. Is this a repeat of 2023 when they surged and then stumbled? How great is Masyn Winn and, conversely, how much do we wor...

It's always a blast when Alex Crisafulli (@alexcards79) joins the show and this time is no exception. Daniel (@C70) and Alex talk about the current team while they bludgeon their way to a win against the Red Sox. Have they missed their window of being able to support good pitching? Will this team be good, interestingly bad, or just bad? The guys also dip into their well of Cardinal memories, talking about Vince Coleman, Matt Morris...

It's the Best Dans in Baseball! Daniel (@C70) welcomes back his former podcast partner Dan Buffa (@buffa82) as the Cardinals take on Milwaukee on Saturday night. There's a whole lot of problems with this team but unfortunately not a lot of solutions. The guys talk about the miserable offense, when on the calendar you have to start looking to next year, and Willson Contreras's horrible injury. Stick around for Dan's recommendations ...

The major league product is getting a little bit better but the minor leagues are the focus of this show. Blake Newberry (Viva El Birdos, TheCardinalNation.com, @bt_newberry) drops by to chat with Daniel (@C70) about all sorts of different facets of the organization. What sort of changes have taken place with the minor league pitchers? Are there some signs that the major league offense might be able to rebound? Have the Cardinals h...

Some better play and some more wins have Daniel (@C70) and this week's guest Ben Godar of Cardinals Off Day (@bengodar) at least somewhat more optimistic about this team. How long can it last, though? Can the pitching keep this run going until the offense really clicks? Why is Jordan Walker in Memphis? Why is Ben scared of the high draft pick this summer? Can they make the team completely out of catchers? All this and much more in ...

As the Cardinals face off against the Brewers, Daniel (@C70) chats with Nate of Talking About Birds (TalkingAboutBirds DOT COM) about how things have gone so far this season for St. Louis. How concerning is the offensive downturn, especially out of Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado? Can Nolan Gorman turn it around? How is this team winning with pitching and how long can it continue to last? Plus some raves about Masyn Winn and a f...

Cardinals fans are blessed with incredible minor league coverage from many sources and at the top of that list is Brian Walton (@B_Walton) of The Cardinal Nation.com. Daniel (@C70) gets a chance to sit down with Brian and talk about a variety of different topics. Is it a good thing that Victor Scott II is still in St. Louis? What's the most interesting thing to keep an eye on in regards to Thomas Saggase? What's the verdict on Rand...

The Cardinals, as of this writing, are a team above .500. That's something we couldn't say at all in 2023! Daniel (@C70) gets a chance to talk it all over with Kelsey Burd (@kburdtweets) to find out just how the vibes are going around this team right now. How much better does this team feel than after the first two games? What happens when Lars Nootbaar--and then others--rejoin the team? Will Ivan Herrera ever give back the catchin...

There's only one game in the books (as the show is recorded) but that doesn't mean it doesn't feel familiar. Daniel (@C70) brings in Russ Robinson (@frrobinson1957) to talk about an Opening Day that fell flat. Was the loss itself frustrating or was it more because it was very much like 2023 in its character? Is it surprising that Victor Scott II made it to the majors after the injury to Dylan Carlson? There's been some updates ...

The great line of 2024 guests continues as Daniel (@C70) welcomes in Richard McGill (@RichardMcGill89), half of the father-son duo that makes up the Playing Catch podcast. With the regular season just a week away, the guys take stock of what the Cardinals are showing down in Florida. How concerning is the lack of power? Are the starting pitchers going to be this bad? Or is everything meaningless in such a small sample size? The guy...

The Pirates are usually last when you think about the NL Central. While that's not why we're just now getting around to talking about them, it is a bit of reasonable representation of how things go. However, things might be changing in the Steel City. Daniel (@C70) talks it over with Connor Williams (@Wins_Williams) who brings us insight on that squad. What was the offseason like for them (and how was it like the one in St. Louis)?...

Every year, Ben Cerutti (@stlfancb7) comes by the show to talk about his projection system and what it says about the year to come. However, the main topic for today was something nobody saw coming. Oli Marmol was the winner of the St. Louis Spring Extension contest, getting a two year deal. Daniel (@C70) talks it over with Ben, discussing the reasons the club did it now and whether it will keep them from making a needed move this ...

The Reds may be the most interesting team in the NL Central. The range of outcomes may be greater for them than any other team. Daniel (@C70) chats with Doug Gray (@dougdirt24) about that team from Cincinnati. Did they have a successful offseason? What's it like to not have Joey Votto around? What has to happen for the Reds to take the division with 90 wins? All that and much more on our third divisional showcase! Learn more about ...
