After a brief hiatus (thank you for your patience), the Best Podcast in Baseball, fresh off the plane from baseball's Winter Meetings, is back with a brand new episode. The Cardinals have adopted a wait-and-watch approach this offseason, favoring math over mash, data over drama. St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold, host of the BPIB, and sports columnist Ben Frederickson discuss the Cardinals' stance and what it has already cost them -- and why their return to October may have more to do with it than they are letting on. The Cardinals insist they're betting on the roster they already have. Maybe that's a hedge. The Best Podcast in Baseball is a production of Derrick Goold, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and StlToday.com.
