A season that contained such wonder (Albert Pujols' 700th home run) and such unexpected storylines (Albert Pujols' 700th home run) finished where so many seasons have recently for the Cardinals -- flat. Swept out of the postseason by the lower-seeded Philadelphia Phillies, at home, the Cardinals have an early start on the postseason. But will it be any different? Must it be? The retirement of Yadier Molina and Albert Pujols leave the Cardinals with significant holes to fill -- on the field, in the clubhouse, and as part of the offense. St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports columnist Ben Frederickson joins a brand new Best Podcast in Baseball to discuss with baseball writer and host Derrick Goold what went awry in the National League Wild Card series, what separates the 100-win behemoths in the National League from the Cardinals, and what to do next, other than just wait and "hope-cast." The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored by Closets by Design of St. Louis, is a production of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, StlToday.com, and Derrick Goold.
