Well looky here, it is the Fourth of July edition of the Getting Blanked show! You don’t have to remove a rib to absorb our discussion on Chris Carpenter and the Cardinals (and Oscar, not Wily, Taveras), the trade market as a whole, and last night’s prospect implosion.

We are joined by Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors, which was great and pleasurable indeed. Follow him on Twitter and read MLBTR (as if you already don’t.)
