On Friday, I joined Rob Rains (without son and co-host) B.J. Rains on The Sports Zone Show on Sports Radio 1380 AM in St. Louis. Even if you are outside the St. Louis area, you can always catch the show’s live internet stream for free.
Our focus was on the decision that was facing the Cardinals as to the identity of their Sunday starter. As you’ll hear, I spent most of the time talking about Joe Kelly, who has since been selected by the club to make his MLB debut. We also covered Johan Santana’s no-hitter, which I attended one week ago today in New York, and briefly touched on the Cardinals’ draft before we ran out of time.
In addition to their weekday show from 1:00 to 3:00 P.M CDT, catch Rob’s writings at RobRains.com and B.J.’s daily beat coverage of the St. Louis Cardinals at FOXSportsMidwest.com.
