FanGraphs Audio: Ben Clemens and Jason Martinez on the Fresh-Faced Cardinals

Episode 976

This week on the show, Ben Clemens and Jason Martinez reconvene after having previously discussed the young baseball season last month.

Offense hasn’t been as quiet as it was in April, and bullpens have gotten a bit shaky — even before being forced to shrink (though it was announced after recording that the pitcher roster limit deadline will be pushed back a bit). Ben and Jason discuss these trends, as well as just how fun the sport has been, including Ben’s early pick for game of the year. The duo also talk about the St. Louis Cardinals, who are having fun and running wild on the basepaths while once again featuring a crop of promising rookie talent. We hear about players like Juan Yepez, Nolan Gorman, and Brendan Donovan, before yours truly asks Ben and Jason to make some fun predictions about rest of the team’s season.
