Bernie Miklasz kicked off the show talking about Flashback Week and the 1970s, he then discussed the Cardinals success heading into the break from the Memphis call ups to the bullpen, and briefly previewed the HR Derby.
Bernie detailed the Memphis Redbirds call-ups in Luke Voit, Tommy Pham, and Paul DeJong leading the way for this team and how their impact can't be understated. Bernie points out that since being recalled Pham has rivaled Bryce Harper and other elite hitters.
