ST. LOUIS Ron Roenicke knows what awaits Mike Matheny in the former catcher's rookie year as St. Louis Cardinals manager, and a learning curve will last well beyond the first season..
Roenicke felt prepared for his first stint as a major-league skipper because of a background coaching in the minor leagues. By the time the Milwaukee Brewers hired him last November, Roenicke...
Mike Matheny's experience as a former major league catcher doesn't guarantee he can manage the St. Louis Cardinals to a repeat as World Series Champions.
Mike Matheny took over the reigns of the St. Louis Cardinals from Hall of Fame to be manager Tony LaRussa. This is the first time since the 1995 season that the Cardinals will have a new manager. LaRussa took over from Mike Jorgensen who took over the Cardinals in 1995 after future Hall of Fame manager Joe Torre was let go.

The St. Louis Cardinals have hired Mike Matheny to a two-year contract as their new manager, with a club option for a third season. The World Series champs say they are not worried that Matheny has never filled out a lineup card for a major league game.
Mayhaps this is the season of hiring the un-experienced?
Last October, the White Sox announced a surprise decision to hire Robin Ventura — a once-great third baseman who had been hired four months prior as a special assistant. Ventura, who played some high quality baseball in some three decades, has managed nary a single MLB or MiLB game in his life.
Then, weeks later and a few...
New St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will keep two of the key pieces on his pitching staff intact, retaining pitching coach Dave Duncan and hitting coach Mark McGwire.
Duncan is the longest-tenured pitching coach in the major leagues, having served in that capacity under recently retired Cardinals manager Tony La Russa for seasons.
McGwire, who clubbed 583 home runs during...
Mark McGwire and Dave Duncan are staying on with the St. Louis Cardinals under new manager Mike Matheny.
McGwire joined the Cardinals as hitting under Tony La Russa for the 2010 season and Duncan was La Russa's pitching coach with the Chicago White Sox, Oakland Athletics and the Cardinals. They were announced Wednesday as coaches for 2012 under Mike Matheny, who succeeded La...
Mike Matheny with the St. Louis Cardinals, like Robin Ventura last month with the Chicago White Sox, takes over without having been a manager at any level.
Several Cardinals have endorsed the move to hire Mike Matheny despite his lack of managing or coaching experience, citing his leadership skills and dedication, and a situation they feel is tailor-made for a rookie manager.
Stay-at-home dad and author of one alright book Dayn Perry discusses NL Central prospects, new Cardinal manager Mike Matheny, and his own personal workout regimen. “Riveting” is not the right word to describe it.

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak's leap of faith in hiring Mike Matheny as the club's skipper is a natural consequence of the game's sudden shift toward novice managers.
Some of the Cardinals' coaching staff is expected to return, but not all of it, under new manager Mike Matheny. The club expects to announce its full roster of coaches by the end of the week, general manager John Mozeliak said Monday.
