and Manager Mike Matheny agree to 3-year contract extension through the 2017 season.
The St. Louis Cardinals revealed on Wednesday they have agreed to a three-year contract extension with Manager Mike Matheny. Hired in November of 2011 shortly after the Cards claimed their latest of 11 World Series titles and then-manager Tony La Russa announced his retirement, Matheny has guided St. Louis to a 185-139 record and last year's NL Central crown in two seasons at the helm. Also on Wednesday, the Cardinals announced the retirement of pitcher Chris Carpenter. Carpenter, a three-time All-Star, won the Cy Young in 2005 and was named the Comeback Player of the Year in 2009. He was also a major contributor in helping St. Louis to World Series titles in 2006 and 2011. Over his 15-year career, Carpenter has pitched more than 2200 innings in amassing a 144-94 overall record and a career 3.76 ERA with the Cardinals and Toronto Blue Jays.
Dear MLB...how can you even begin to explain your choices for Manager of the Year for BOTH AL and NL. Lets start with the AL...Terry Francona was definitely the saving grace for the Indians but how can you not give it to John Ferrell? After the season the Red Sox had last year finishing LAST in the AL east to finishing with the best record in baseball the next year and winning the World Series. Ridiculous Now on to the joke in the NL. How can you possibly give the award to a coach who finished in 2nd place in the division...and one game away from 3d place. Not saying Clint Hurdle is a bad coach by any means but not Coach of the Year. How about a coach in the toughest division in baseball who WON the division with 97 wins...who ended up winning the NLDS against Clint Hurdle's 2nd place Pirates. Mike Matheny wasn't even in the top 3 in the votes! Absolutely ridiculous. Hurdle, Mattingly, and Gonzalez (Braves coach) all with worse records than the cardinals, none of them made it to the World Serie ...
Mike Matheny finished 4th in The Manager of the Year voting, Shelby Miller finished 3rd in Rookie of the Year.. Time for Yadi to win MVP.
So what do you say when your husband comes home from work and says he took a leak next to Mike Matheny today. Congrats? hehe
how in the world does Freddy Gonzales and Don Mattingly finish ahead of mike matheny for manager of the year. We know hurdle will win but what did Gonzales do? Mattingly had a billion dollars to play with. BBWAA are a joke
Sports digest: St. Louis Cardinals' Carlos Beltran might be on the way out The St. Louis Cardinals have made a one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer to free agent Carlos Beltran. They just don't expect him to return next season. General manager John Mozeliak and Manager Mike Matheny met with reporters Monday for the first time since losing a six-game World Series to the Boston Red Sox last week. Mozeliak says he expects the 36-year-old Beltran to seek a multiyear contract elsewhere. "We never want to close doors," Mozeliak said. "Reality is when you look at the depth, trying to find ample playing time, I'm not sure how happy he will be."
"We squared up. They beat us. Instead of running into the clubhouse, acknowledge." St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny on why he stayed in the dugout to watch the Boston Red Sox celebrate on the field after they won Game 6 and the World Series. Mike Matheny is a class act.
Earlier today, Mike Matheny and John Mozeliak spoke with the media and announced that the Cardinals have offered Carlos Beltran a one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer. If Beltran declines, the Cardinals will pick up a compensation draft pick for the 2014 First-Year Player draft. Also, Matheny announced that Trevor Rosenthal is set to start the 2014 season as their closer.

Hey Tigers "fans": I've read on some pages and posts that the Tigers are making a huge mistake in hiring (supposedly) Ausmus as their new manager. They are all quick to jump ship. "No playoffs ever again" and "I'm no longer a fan" and blah blah blah. Let me explain something to you: Mike Matheny, Robin Ventura, Don Mattingly, Kirk Gibson, Walt Weiss, Mike Redmond, Joe Girardi, John Farrell, and Matt Williams have all received Major League managerial jobs without any prior managerial experience at any level. Of this group, only Farrell and Gibson have previous coaching experience. Of this group, 5 (Gibson, Farrell, Girardi, Mattingly, Matheny) have made the playoffs within the first three years of their being hired, and 2 (Girardi and Matheny) have appeared in the World Series. Girardi won one by his third year, and Farrell won a World Series in his FIRST year as manager with a worse roster than what Bobby Valentine had to work with. Mattingly, Matheny and Gibson have made the playoffs in their second year ...
The Tigers are hiring Brad Ausmus as their new manager. This means Mike Matheny has competition for the hottest manager in baseball.

Hopefully, he'll bring an experienced coaching staff with him. Just off the top of my head other recent managerial hires with absolutely no previous managerial experience enjoying success very early in their careers, i.e. all less than 4 years in: Kirk Gibson (playoffs 1st full season), Mike Matheny (playoffs first 2 seasons), Don Mattingly (playoffs 2013), Mike Scoscia (World Series year 4), John Farrell (World Series year 3), Ozzie Guillen (World Series year 2), Joe Giarardi (World Series year 3).

John Farrell: "I'd like to congratulate Mike Matheny and the Saint Louis Cardinals on a great season and series."
Watching the Red Sox win a championship in a blowout game at Fenway is about as excruciating as baseball gets. But what a postseason performance from David Ortiz! A remarkable, unforgettable figure in the game. He led Boston to victory not only when he got into the batters box, but maybe more importantly when he got into Mike Matheny's head. He turned a good manager into a bumbler. For all the talk of hedge fund management style and the genius of Bill James, the fact is that the single most important part of Boston's world-on-its-head reality flip of the past decade is the gift they received when the Twins left them Big Papi, in a bundle, on their doorstep. With a note pinned to him--Use to break curse.
Midway through the World Series, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox would win the MVP. Even if St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny wasn't going to endorse it with the Series going … Continue reading →

Redbird Nation Raise the Cardinals won Game 2 of the World Series 4-2 to tie the series ending Boston's 9 game World Series win streak so no sweep sorry Micheal Wacha got the win but got nailed for a two run home run in the 6th which ultimatly ended his night while trialing 2-1 but boston allowed two errors by there defense on one play on a sac fly by Matt Carpenter with boston's ctcher dropping the ball at home plate for one error then Criag Breslow had a throwing error on the same play to allow the go ahead run then the returning Carlos Beltran hit an RBI single to add an insernse run and Carlos Martinez pitched two innings of great baseball with Mike Matheny sticking with him in the 8th shut down Boston hitters the rest of the way allowing Trevor Rosenthal to get the save throwing heat striking out all three batters he faced vary proud and excited looking forward to Game 3 tomarrow night in St Louis GO CARDS
2013 Season Highlights The Cardinals led the National League with 97 wins, the first time since 2005 when they led the Majors with 100 wins. Their 97-65 record also tied the American League Boston Red Sox for the winningest in MLB. The Cardinals set franchise records with 75 errors, the fewest in team history and a .988 fielding percentage. The Cardinals had a Major League‐leading 36 combined wins from rookie pitchers this season, their most since 1941 when they received the franchise record of 42 led by Ernie White (17‐7) and Howie Krist (10‐0). The team has used 20 rookies this season ‐ the most since employing 21 in 1970. Matt Carpenter set the Cardinals single‐season doubles record for a left‐handed batter with his 54th at Milwaukee (9/21), breaking Stan Musial's mark of 53 in 1953. Carpenter also finished the season one hit shy of 200. The last Cardinal to collect 200 or more hits in a season was Albert Pujols in 2003 when he had an NL‐best 212 hits. Mike Matheny became the first in St. ...
BIRDS VS. BEARDS, PART 5 -- -- BERNIE MIKLASZ: This is a different cat. Mike Matheny thrives as a manager because he sees his players as human beings instead of numbers on a spreadsheet. And he's willing to take chances with them, even if it means coming under a storm of criticism. Matheny doesn't care about that. He cares about his players. He puts them first. -- JOHN AXFORD, who throws in the mid-90s, was talking to local St. Louis television after being traded to the team in August, and he was asked what he thought of his new bullpen. He laughed. "It's crazy," he said. "Everywhere I look, there's some kid who throws 95. It's a little disorienting. I thought I was special." -- RAFAEL FURCAL IS ALIVE: After Trevor Rosenthal finished the game with a 99-mph fastball, shortstop Furcal greeted his team with a familiar refrain. He coined the term “Happy flight” late in 2011 as the Cardinals began a World Series run. He would chant during and after wins that came the day of a trip somewhere -- ev ...

Well Just learned that Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny is a UofM alum.
A clear bottle of brown liquid, labeled "Pain Relieving Liniment," sat in the center of the shelf of Carlos Beltran's locker in the visitors' clubhouse at Fenway Park. That was not the only elixir Beltran tried in an attempt to play in Game 2 of the World Series, after leaving Game 1 early due to the contused ribs he suffered when he crashed into the wall while robbing David Ortiz of a second inning grand slam. He also received a shot of Toradol, a pain-killer, and three hours before the first pitch neither he nor Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny knew if either the tonic or the injection would work. "We're going to find out when he gets in the cage and gets some swings," Matheny said. Read More:
Cardinals - Mike Matheny, Carlos Beltran, Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright , Matt Holiday , And many more. Red Sox - Jake Peavey, Saltamacchio, and others, all giving glory to God. Not for the World Series, But for who He is. How beautiful, how true. Let us praise The Lord with them.
Michael Wacha wins again in October as Cards even World Series October 24, 2013 BOSTON -- Michael Wacha and his Cardinals bullpen provided the power pitching. Carlos Beltran, injected with a painkiller, came through with a huge hit. And this time, it was the Red Sox who were tripped up by fielding failures. Wacha bested John Lackey in a matchup of present and past rookie sensations, and St. Louis beat Boston 4-2 on Thursday night to even the World Series at a game apiece. "Somebody would have to kill me in order for me to get out of the lineup," said Beltran, undeterred by bruised ribs that landed him at the hospital a night earlier. Matt Holliday tripled and scored on Yadier Molina's fourth-inning grounder, but David Ortiz put Boston ahead 2-1 in the sixth when he pounced on an 85 mph changeup for a two-run homer just over the Green Monster in left field. That ended Wacha's scoreless streak at 18 2/3 innings -- a rookie record for a single postseason -- but it was all he gave up. Selected by St. Louis la ...

Round about the end of the 2nd inning of tonight's game, I found my mind wondering back, back, back in time to when my two boys were in T-Ball and Little League. (My husband had just left the room in a huff, the dogs were asleep, oblivious to my desolation, and apparently the Cardinals were too.) Of course, in T-Ball, everything those little guys did was just cute, cute, cute, but tonight at Fenway, it wasn't cute at all. Then my mind meandered to Little League memories. Ahh, when ball got so much better and it didn't take a boy thirty swings to hit the ball off of that little T. That was better: yet, I recall boys standing in the outfield picking their noses, staring at the sky, kicking the dirt up, cleaning their belly-buttons, looking for mom or dad occasionally. I recall games that took hours. I recall shouting 'Shake it off,' until I think I yelled it in my sleep. I recall boys running to the wrong bases, boys walking to the wrong bases, boys missing balls that were rolling on the ground straight fo ...
X-Rays on Carlos Beltran's right rib come back negative, according to Manager Mike Matheny. He's listed as day-to-day.
Cards ace Wainwright struggles in Series opener October 23, 2013 BOSTON -- Adam Wainwright had one of his toughest games of a stellar season, and his St. Louis teammates gave him little help. Two errors by shortstop Pete Kozma helped Boston score five runs in the first two innings and the Red Sox beat the Cardinals 8-1 in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night. Wainwright, a 19-game winner this season, also hurt his own cause in the second when he raised his hands as if signaling that he would catch a popup in front of the mound. But he let it drop between him and catcher Yadier Molina for a single that started a two-run inning. He threw 60 pitches through two innings then settled down and left trailing 5-0 and having thrown 95 pitches through five. Wainwright allowed just one hit in his last three innings but, by then, it was too late. "He did get better as he went," Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny said. He allowed three earned runs in his shortest stint in his last 10 games. He was 6-1 in his prev ...

BIRDS VS. BEARDS, PART 2 -- 1. try to explain wacha. he just keeps getting better. 2.65 era for memphis, with 73 strikeouts in 85 innings. 2.78 for cards during the regular season, with 65 strikeouts in 6 innings. 0.43 era in the playoffs. 2. los angeles catcher a. j. ellis said of the cardinals: “If you watch them, they get a whole bunch of the same type of guy. They get a great group of college position players who know how to play the game coming right out of the draft. They sprinkle in a few top prospects — guys like Kozma, some guys they have coming up — and they draft power arms and develop these guys.” 3. befitting a team with the no. 4 payroll ($152 million), most of the Red Sox came from other organizations. only 4 of the 11 key players -- nava, pedroia, middlebrooks and bogaersts -- came from the farm system. they have developed 3 key pitchers -- lester, buchholz and doubront. 4. . despite winning 97 games, boston had 2 starters with losing records -- lackey at 10-13 ...
Michael Wacha will pitch Game 2 for St. Louis, Mike Matheny says.
Hurdle received five votes. Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez received three votes and St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny got one.
I understand his frustration, but, why go public and put the Dodgers in the position they are now in? They really have no choice but to let Mattingly go. I am sure everyone will want Leyland, no chance, or Dusty Baker, who would be a good choice. However, I will stand by my previous statement and say that Orel Hershiser is the man for the job. I know he has no experience, but neither did Mike Matheny, and look what he has done with the Cardinals in his first two years. Tim Wallach did a great managerial job at Triple A for the Dodgers before becoming their third base coach. No matter what, Mattingly must go, and I think he will be let go before the day is done.
Like the Cardinals in game 1 with Wainwright despite being on the road. Like them in the series too although I have no idea why Mike Matheny is starting Lance Lynn over Shelby Miller when Miller had a much better season
An awesome poem from an awesome person. Cardinal Studs by Marvin Lane Wacha, Kelly, Miller, Jay Wainwright, Beltran, Holliday Adams, Lynn, Molina too Cardinal studs to name a few Carpenter yes he's the man Craig he does what no one can Roenthal what can one say Go to him to save the day Then there is this guy named Freese Makes third base seem like a breeze These are who the Cardinals are We don't need no superstar Mike Matheny leads them all Met the challenge to the call Come on team we need that ring Show them what teamwork can bring
The more I think about it, I would really like to see Brad Ausmus as the next Tigers manager. He would be our Mike Matheny.
I lov that Mike Matheny, the manager for St.Louis Cardinals, graduated Reynoldsburg High. Around 8 miles from Pataskala, where I grew up!! Go St.Louis!!! By the way the State Bird for Ohio since 1933 The Cardinal... How interesting.
Cardinals fan, we have the best record in baseball this year and are set to play in the World Series once again, despite losing both former rookie of the year and 3-time All-star ss Raffy Furcal, last years NL best 42-save closer Jason Motte, and Cy Young winner & ace Chris Carpenter for the year to injury before the season even started.we lost the NL's best winning % pitcher from last year Kyle Lohse (16-3 in '12) to free agency.did without our most reliable rbi man Allen Craig down the stretch and through the first 2 rounds of playoffs, our starter Jamie Garcia was only able to make 9 starts all year, our closer flamed out, Freese, Kozma, and Jay had terrible years with the bat.I think there may be something to Mike Matheny and the magic of Cardinal Nation!
Pulling for Cards for a lot of reasons besides being a fan. My son Johnny Frohlichstein reminds me we would be the first team this century with three World Series Titles (if Boston wins, they get that recognition). He also reminded me this would be a great tribute to Stan the Man. And I want this because current Manager Mike Matheny was the catcher for the losing 2004 Cards vs. Boston. Just like we wanted to get to the Series for Carlos Beltran, we need to win one for Matheny.
Don't think for a second that mgr. Mike Matheny doesn't remember 2004.

Chris Carpenter, Mike Matheny, John Mabry, Yadier Molina, and Jose Oquendo...all part of the 2004 Cardinals
Mike Matheny was the starting C on the 2004 team that was swept by Boston. All the more reason a victory would be sweet.
Mike Matheny (manager) and John Mabry (hitting coach). No players from 04 is on the 2013 team now.
People involved in the that will be involved in this one: David Ortiz, Yadier Molina, Jose Oquendo & Mike Matheny. Missing anyone?
Meanwhile the Cardinals captured their 4th pennant in 10 years. Accomplished AND classy. Best of luck to Mike Matheny in the …
St Louis replaced legend Tony La Russa with Mike Matheny & Cards are going to World Series. Leyland has to go, he's replaceable
Mike Matheny probably thinks Red Sox play in World Series every year. All other supposed AL teams just TV magic...like that "moon landing."
The tigers lost this series SOLELY because of Jim Leyland. Maybe he should take notes from John Farrell and Mike Matheny
in 5. The are OLD and unlike Leyland Mike Matheny CAN manage his way out of a wet paper bag.
Mike Matheny to his team: "That's not how the Cardinals do it."
So what are you going to say when you have to speak with your Stratomatic nemesis Mike Matheny?
I despise the Cardinals but I do recognize that they are the best organization in baseball. Love Mike Matheny.
Column filed to P-D, re: Mike Matheny's most excellent October adventure.
Lost in all of this is the job Mike Matheny is doing. Wacha over Shelby in Pittsburgh, Robinson over Jay tonight. All the …

Like a new father, skipper Mike Matheny has one word to describe his feelings- proud:
When the champagne dried,Michael Wacha was the difference,the driving force to the National League pennant:Guts,humility,poise,raw greatness. The size of the stage did not matter. What an amazing pitching staff. Seth Maness throwing that sinker,inducing 17 double plays,complimenting the gas of two kids who did everything asked of them,Trevor Rosenthal and Carlos Martinez. Being in the bullpen,Martinez learned how to pitch.I marvel that Tyler Lyons and Shelby Miller weren't used in the two series. Kudos to Mike Matheny and Derek Lilliquist,starting the season without Jason Motte and Chris Carpenter.National League Champions!
Michael Wacha's spot is secure now. He continued his storybook season Friday night by working seven innings of a 9-0 win over the Dodgers that punched the Cards' World Series ticket. Wacha became the youngest NLCS MVP Award winner since 21-year-old Steve Avery of the Braves in 1991, the first rookie to win a postseason series MVP Award since then-Marlins sensation Livan Hernandez in the 1997 World Series, and the first rookie to start and win an NLCS clinching game since the Dodgers' Fernando Valenzuela in 1981. "We just want him to think that this is normal and this is expected," St. Louis Manager Mike Matheny said.

Shane Robinson is trending. Mike Matheny was a genius all series.
I love how Mike Matheny is getting praised for putting Shane Robinson in over Jon Jay. He finally did what everybody has been yelling at the TV for the past two weeks.
What a Great Team wonderful feelings for Carlos, Molina,Sachs and how neat for Mike Matheny:-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
Shane Robinson was the best choice Mike Matheny made in the besides deciding to start Michael Wacha.
is glad to see charmed Mike Matheny back. Shane Robinson goes 2 for 2 with a pair o' RBI.
Mike Matheny a genius once again. Starting Shane Robinson tonight, he should have pinch hit over Adron Chambers at the end of game 5
How about Mike Matheny deciding to play Shane Robinson in Center Field?
How smart does Mike Matheny look for swapping John Jay for Shane Robinson?!
In his two seasons as manager, Mike Matheny has led his team as far as the National League Championship Series. But does the skipper get the chance to actually enjoy what he and his team have accomplished?
Who is better looking Mike Modano or Mike Matheny?
NEW YORK TIMES : Manager Mike Matheny ordered Wacha to intentionally walk Adrian Gonzalez to load the bases with one out, a move that usually precedes a reliever coming in. But Wacha has been so poised, so effective, so ace-like, that Matheny trusted Wacha to pitch out of the jam.
Cardinals win game two. Kudos to the hometown boy, Mike Matheny, from Reynoldsburg and is a nice guy. But now they go to lions den. It's going to tough.
Fire Mattingly "Any postseason loss is crushing, really, but Friday night's felt even more so thanks to a series of questionable decisions by Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. Adrian Gonzalez was removed for pinch runner Dee Gordon in the eighth inning, yet Gordon didn't run. The replacement at first base, Michael Young, had two plate appearances and hit into four outs, though one of those outs was a combination of Beltran's arm and third base coach Tim Wallach's decision in the 10th. But more on that in a bit. Mattingly also called for a bunt in the 12th inning from Mark Ellis, leaving first base open making it easier for Mike Matheny to order an intentional walk to Hanley Ramirez, taking the bat out of the hands of the Dodgers' best hitter with no Gonzalez there to follow. Young, who grounded into 21 double plays during the regular season, did so again to end the inning. Mattingly also waited to use his best reliever, Jansen, hoping for a save situation that never came. It took four other relievers, who ad ...
Mike Matheny "first and foremost I wanna thank Al Haymon"
Ex Giants Catcher Mike Matheny now Cardinals manger has to beat the Dodgers and Brian Wilson Beard in 2013 NLCS
Look out Mike Matheny..I just got my first call up and am running today's Baseball Practice.
The most important piece of the Cardinals that no one talks about is how phenomenal Mike Matheny has been as a manager.
“You try to draw up what an ace should look like on a staff, and Adam Wainwright embodies that ... He's a pro.”- Mike Matheny.
Busch in 08. 50 ppl lined up to thank a stranger for "all that you've done for us". Police? Army? Nope, pre-mgr Mike Matheny.
Mike Matheny is a slap. Starting Kelly game 1

I'm proud that Mike Matheny is the manager of my favorite team!

Credit to the Cardinal owners. We are so lucky here to have ownership that does what it takes to field a winning team. I can't imagine a run like this if AB-Imbev owned this team. And further credit to Mike Matheny and the coaching staff. I don't believe for a minute that TLR could have done as good of a job this year. No way he would have used so many rookies, he would have Mo trading for veteran help. He just wasn't fond of young talent. Matheny should be manager of the year, but I am pretty sure it will go to Hurdle, so we'll just have to settle for winning the World Series! Go Cards!!!
Mike Matheny is definitely easy on the eyes! Who's with me? Go Cards!
So jealous of anyone who gets to hug Mike Matheny in celebration. Yay Redbirds!
Mike Matheny touched me one time in 2002. This is my sad attempt at a cardinal status
Person- "that guy looks like a baseball player!" Me- "Mike Matheny?!? He was a baseball player!" Seriously?! SMH
Wainwright is the starter for game 5? Apparently the Cardinals dont want to advance to the CS or they would be starting far superior Jake Westbrook. Enjoy the winter break Mike Matheny!
Miller, Lynn ready in Cards' bullpen for Game 5 October 8, 2013 Rookie right-hander Shelby Miller won't be the only Cardinals starter ready for bullpen duty in Game 5 of their NL division series against Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. St. Louis Manager Mike Matheny said Lance Lynn, chased in the fifth inning of Game 2, will be available as well. Lynn has failed to qualify for a victory in any of his three career postseason starts. Miller led major league rookies with 15 wins but is adjusting to being the odd man out in the playoff rotation so far. He's worked just one inning in the series, and noted "I have no idea when I'm going to pitch" and added it felt "like I haven't thrown forever." The Pirates are iffy about using starter A.J. Burnett in a relief role. Burnett has an unsightly 31.50 ERA in the series after eight straight Cardinals batters reached safely to start their seven-run third inning in Game 1, and he has very little experience out of the bullpen. Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle all but rule ...
3 Million St. Louis Cardinal fans will be cheering our team on to victory against Pittsburgh tomorrow evening. GO CARDINALS! GO WAINO, YADI, HOLIDAY, CARPENTER, FREEZE, BELTRAN, ADAMS, and all the Cardinals. What an awesome team and Manager Mike Matheny!
"I think you take high talent and high character people that are motivated and support each other, and they don't give up," Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny said. "That's a tough combination."
Mike Matheny to bat first next game. FYI
Mike matheny throws three rookies in Game 4.That's a winner!
Happy flight!! And yes i was wrong about wacha...sorry mike matheny.lol
If I were Mike Matheny Adam Wainwright would be on the mound today no use saving him for a game that isn't guaranteed to happen.
Attention Christ Church Men: December 13th is going to be a day you are going to want to circle on the calander, put a reminder in your iphone, and clear and plans you may have! St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny and Cardianls announcer Rick Horton will be here to talk to the men of the church and just spend some time and worship. The Jeff Allen band will be there providing the worship music. Tickets are $20 and are good for you and 1 friend who isnt in a small group or who does not attend christ chruch. You can get your tickets at mychristchurch.com or at the Christ Church bookstore.
I'm done for so I'm gonna be a weanie and go to sleep before Mike Matheny and Steven Barkhurst are done fixing my floor. I don't know what I would do without them. :-)
Well tomorrow is a big test for Mike Matheny (Cards Manager). Must win, on the Road and you decide to go with Wacha over Miller. There is a thin line between being a great manager in the regular season and being a truly great manager. When there is NO tomorrow you must manage like it.just ask ole Dusty Baker. Best of luck to the Cards, the Buckos look and feel like a team of destiny.
"Tomorrow the guys will be ready to go. And we'll put our best game out there." -Mike Matheny
Mike matheny is not tony larrussa my bardinals fina choke it away
It is a good thing for Mike Matheny that I dont own the Cardinals cause that *** would be looking for a new job tomorrow. Just dumb decisions with the pitching staff. Martinez in a tie game in 8th inning on the road are you kidding me. He stupid
Hard to second guess Mike Matheny but BELTRAN in the two hole seems a waste as unproductive as Matt Holiday has been in his Playoff career! ;+ (( F*&K!!!
You think mike matheny remembers he has randy choate in his bull pen? Might have been a better option then a rookie in that situation?
Sandy thinks that when mike matheny just gave his hand signals he was telling her that he loves her. This is what she just told me. I think it is time for her meds.
Something you'll never hear Mike Matheny say: "Let's walk the pitcher!"
Gonna be a long Cardinal day. They're probably up to it. Got to say I am impressed with Mike Matheny. Just goes to show "one monkey don't stop no show"

Yeah, Mike Matheny look like he will be just another one of those legendary Cardinals manager so far! This team won't lose.
Was Westbrook your second choice today Mike Matheny?
No excuse Mike Matheny. You killed the Cardinals chance to advance by starting Lance Lynn today. Why in the *** did you do this?
Mike Matheny starting Lance Lynn today over any of the following Wacha, Kelly or Miller was a HUGE mistake IMO!
Mike Matheny disagrees, burn everyone in blow outs.
Mike Matheny pitching Lance Lynn was the dumbest idea ever.
John Farrell,Mike Matheny,Fredi Gonzales,Mattingly, Francona,Maddon, they are all tough yet fair and grounded.
I've hated mike matheny since he cut his finger with a hunting knife in the '03 playoffs, worst manager in the league
Dear fans. Mike Matheny thinks the fans can't shake them because they have been there. LETS PROVE HIM WRONG!
Mike Matheny saying "the ball flew different today" as to why defense was so bad. Yep, he's DEFINITELY a Cardinal!
Mike Matheny is still nice to look at.
mike matheny. He use to be a cardinal catcher at the time before becoming the manager

I'm sure Mike Matheny is going to get some questions on why Lance Lynn got the start today.

NO disrespect to Mike Matheny who has done a marvelous job for the past two years, why Lynn over Miller and Kelly?
1) only 3 hits after 8: the Mr. Hyde has returned 2) now we have another confidence building project for Mike Matheny: Lynn
Why did Lance Lynn start this game? Did Mike Matheny watch him pitch this year?
Mike Matheny doesn't know anything about pitching. Why would you take Miller out of the rotation for Lynn.
