10.06.2019 - By Best Podcast in Baseball
As the National League Division Series between the Cardinals and Atlanta Braves shifts back to Busch Stadium for the marble game -- Game 3 -- the Best Podcast in Baseball pulls The Athletic's Braves beat writer David O'Brien into the conversation and explores the many similarities in this October series. BPIB host Derrick Goold and the longtime baseball writer O'Brien, who was once with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, talk pitching plans for Game 4 and a potential Game 5 and check out the mirror image the Braves cast of the Cardinals, from manager and leaders top young pitchers on down. After Cardinals rookie reliever Ryan Helsley's comments that the Braves' longtime cheer is 'disrespectful' to his Cherokee heritage, O'Brien also offers some insight into the 'Tomahawk Chop.' How badly KU men's basketball needs its rivalry with Mizzou is also discussed.
