Cardinal Talk: KXnO FOX Sports Radio: Homestand is here

Weekly St. Louis Cardinals-focused chat on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines.

Late Friday afternoon, I joined Ken Miller and Jim Brinson on KXnO FOX Sports Radio 1460 in Des Moines in our regular series to discuss the St. Louis Cardinals, “Cardinal Talk.” This time, we discussed the recently-concluded 5-1 road trip and the upcoming 10-game homestand.

Cardinals followers in central Iowa can again catch St. Louis Cardinals radio broadcasts on KXnO as well as my regular segment each week throughout the season, either over the air or via streaming. Or, if you miss it live, you can always catch the replay right here at The Cardinal Nation blog.

    Shelby Miller is en route to stardom and a pile of publicity.

    The Cards have the best record in the majors right now, and its built on the road record. If they can collect some home wins too, they can streak out to a hot opening to the season.

      The Cards also have given up the fewest runs in baseball, which is a departure from previous years in which their overwhelming offense was carrying them.

      I’m reasonably excited about their chances here this year and for the next few years, at least. It’s great to see the young guys stepping up.

        The Cards seem in a strong position for 2013. They have a lot of depth, too.

        If Boggs or Rzepcyzski get their acts together at AAA, one could return and Kelly could go down, to work as a starter. Then we would have Kelly, Wacha, and Gast as starting pitcher depth.
        Freese will probably work out his problems and start to contribute.
        If Beltran were to get hurt, Craig could move to right and Adams play each day.

        Right now, the Cards are like a kickoff returner who broken through and its not clear the Reds can catch up.
