The morning after a historically ugly loss in Pittsburgh for the Cardinals of 2021, Drew Silva, senior Major League Baseball writer at NBC Sports Edge and self-described "pessimistic" Cardinals fan, grabs a cold coffee and joins Best Podcast in Baseball host and baseball writer Derrick Goold to talk about the moves the club could make to reignite excitement by the start of the 2022 season. Silva, who last joined the podcast at Urban Chestnut in St. Louis, home of the Fantasyland IPA, writes about fantasy baseball and has a biting presence on Twitter when it comes the Cardinals. He explains how he became a fan of the team, how their notable successes came notable times in his life, and how this year's team got to where it is -- drifting from the playoff race, if only the other teams would let them. In addition to writing for NBC Sports Edge, Silva also hosts the podcast Circling the Bases. The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored weekly by Closets by Design of St. Louis, is a production of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,, and Derrick Goold.  See for privacy information.
