The Cardinals cut ties with Mike Leake and prepare for September on this episode of the 11th Inning Stretch!
On this episode of the 11th Inning Stretch, Paul and Alex reunite to discuss the Cardinals trading Mike Leake, September call-ups, and the American League’s Wild Card race.
We start off the show with a discussion about Mike Leake’s unceremonious exit from the St. Louis Cardinals via trade to the Seattle Mariners. Paul and Alex tell us how this will help payroll for the Cardinals and what it means for the Cardinals and Mariners moving forward. Plus, we learn who the guys would like to see called up for the Cardinals in September, how this year’s call-ups will affect the 2018 season, and a preview of the next two series on the west coast against the lowly San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres.
In other Major League Baseball news, the American League Wild Card race is heating up and the fellas tell us who we should plan to see in this year’s playoffs. It appears New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels seem to have a leg up on the competition come October.
