Best Podcast in Baseball 7.22: Tangle in the Ivy

With 10 games remaining in the regular season, the Cardinals hold a slim lead in the National League Central and have what essentially is a best-of-seven series against the rival Cubs to determine the division champ. On the eve of a four-game series at Wrigley Field, St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold and sports columnist Benjamin Hochman preview the series and discuss what is at stake for the Cardinals (four years out of the playoffs?!) and for the Cubs (whatever happened to that dynasty?!). Along the way, Hochman offers his take on a star-studded pitching matchup and whether the Cubs, Brewers, and Cardinals all underachieved, overachieved, or played this season as expected. The Best Podcast in Baseball, brought to you by Closets by Design! of St. Louis, is a production of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch,, and Derrick Goold.
