The Opening Drive

Cardinals broadcaster Mike Claiborne

Claibs joins Carey, Brooke & Randy to talk about his expectations for the Cardinals pitchers to show consistency in the second half, the importance of the pitchers having a game plan for the rest of the season, how long “stretching out” a pitcher usually takes, if Luken Baker could be part of the September call ups, dealing with a Cardinals season to this level for the first time, why a package trade during the offseason is something to watch for, why the Baltimore situation shocked Claibs despite everything he’s seen and why criticism from broadcaster is so important in Cardinals history & for baseball going further.
