Podcast: Yu, Pujols and memories of 2011

The gang got back together one last time in 2011 -- well, most of the gang -- for a Tuesday Baseball Today podcast, with Mark Simon and myself welcoming a pair of baseball-savvy guests!

1. Derrick Goold, baseball writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, joined us to talk about the world champs sans a certain first baseman, what lies ahead for this team and of course, which non-Cardinal deserves a World Series share!

2. Are you ready for Yu? The Texas Rangers are taking their shot at Japanese import Yu Darvish, and me, Mark and SweetSpot writer David Schoenfield discuss his potential impact.

3. We get into some of our favorite memories from the 2011 season, from best game and surprises to some of the goofier things. What, it’s Baseball Today, you’ve gotta have goofy!

4. Regular listeners know why Esteban Yan is special to our show … so who wins the Esteban Yan award for this past season?

5. A very special emailer goes around the diamond for the All-Christmas team!

So download and listen to Tuesday’s Baseball Today podcast, enjoy the holiday season, have a Happy New Year and we’ll return early in 2012!
