Yeah, I know we just previewed the Cardinals with Bellyscratcher, but if you have the opportunity to have a celebrity blogger like Will Leitch from the Deadspin.com on the show, you take it. I mean, we’re talking about the guy who glogged the Super Bowl!On tonight’s show we talk about how Deadspin began, how it grew to what it is today, and how they get the community to provide most of the content–and that’s just the stuff before we start talking about baseball.

Tonight on the Red Hot Broadcast we’re pleased to welcome our favorite smack-talker, Bellyscratcher, to give us a preview of the Cardinals 2007 season.Ms. Scratcher talks about the big, throbbing question mark that is the St. Louis starting rotation (can you believe Ryan Franklin is in the mix??), the future of Colby Rasmus, and how any team with Albert Pujols doesn’t have to worry about offense. Also hear first-hand how the home of Busch ran out of beer one fabled night.
Check out Ms. Scratcher’s site, bellyitcher, on a regular basis. Many thanks, Belly, for being on the show. I can hardly wait for the smack to begin!

Are we doomed to another year of Encarnación being blocked because of an older player who knew how to play the game right?
