Was the St. Louis Cardinals hiring of Mike Matheny last year the start of a new trend? Is he a trailblazing hire that other general managers in MLB will mimic?
With what is happening in the MLB and the recent hiring of Walt Weiss as the Colorado Rockies manager, the trend seems to be continuing.
Last year, there were two "true" rookie managers that were hired, Robin...
The St. Louis Cardinals come into the 2012 offseason having won a World Series in 2011 and falling one game short of returning to the Fall Classic in 2012.
