St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was ejected for the first time in his managerial career after arguing a call at second base in the tenth of the Cardinals 3-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs. - Photo courtesy of Getty Images St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is experiencing many new things in his first season as a manager in Major League Baseball. Matheny has quickly had to learn how to handle a bullpen, juggle a lineup filled with injuries, and manage a team that has been assigned a tough travel schedule to begin the season. In Tuesday night's 3-2 extra innings loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, Matheny experienced something else for the first time as manager of the Cardinals. He was ejected from a Major League Baseball game for the first time as manager. Matheny was ejected in the tenth inning after a questionable call took place on a stolen base attempt by Cubs outfielder Tony Campana.  It looked as though Campana may have beaten Gold Glove catcher Ya...

  • Matheny just proved ~ he's a stand-up, take charge, support his player type of guy! Kudo's to him. Okay, he got ejected for arguing a call ~ was his first, but certainly won't be his last in his career! Not afraid to be an active manager. Goes with the territory.

Shelby Miller righting the ship

St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller has bounced back from two sub par outings and has now fanned 15 batters in his last 10 innings after tossing five shutout frames Tuesday.   Miller did not appear to be a strong consideration to make the Cards’ rotation out of spring training but it wasn’t completely ruled out until he was shipped to minor league camp in March....

It's Time To Move On From Tyler Greene

I'm not a major league baseball player. You're not a major league baseball player. We're not in the minority; we're the vast majority. There is no shame in not having success in the highest level of a professional sport. Quite the opposite, it's an honor to be considered worthy of a chance to play in the Majors.Tyler Greene was drafted with the last pick in the...

Cardinals put injured Jay on 15-day DL

Center fielder Jon Jay was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday by the St. Louis Cardinals because of shoulder soreness. St. Louis played the finale of a five-game homestand with only one regular outfielder, left fielder Matt Holliday. Right fielder Carlos Beltran missed his second straight start due to a minor knee injury but was available to pinch hit. ''We decided...

Quick reaction saves World Series trophy

When the St. Louis Cardinals loaned their 2011 World Series trophy to their Double-A affiliate in Springfield, Mo., for the weekend, they had no idea they were putting it in harms way. But for a brief second Saturday afternoon, flashbacks of Alabama's BCS Championship crystal shattering on the floor and a series of other famous trophy mishaps couldn't help but creep into...

LaHair Wins Motte’s 12-Pitch Battle

With a two-out, two-run walk-off single off St. Louis closer Jason Motte, the Cubs’ Joe Mather became Monday night’s unlikeliest hero. But all you had to do was ask him — before the traditional shaving cream pie to the face, of course — and he’d tell you (as he told WGN after the game) the man truly responsible for the Cubs’ ninth-inning rally was Bryan LaHair. The 29...

Cardinals to appear on MLB Network five times in May

With the recent closure of the dispute between AT&T u-verse and FOX Sports Midwest, television viewing problems for St. Louis-area fans of the St. Louis Cardinals have pretty much been cleared up. Those outside of the Cardinals-designated markets, however, must continue to rely on pay packages such as MLB Extra Innings or MLB.TV to catch their club on live video. Another vehicle...

Should MLB players and social media mix?

By definition, commenting on blogs and message boards means a comfortable anonymity for the poster. Some take the freedom too far, overreacting and ridiculing, perhaps in part to boost their own low esteem. With popular interactive social media such as Facebook and Twitter, the player and fan can interact directly. The outcomes aren’t always pretty. During the off-season, when...


There is no time for pleasantries, my long lost friends.  I was at that game tonight and have to do some venting before my eyeballs fall out of my head and my brain eats itself and destroys major organs that I might need later. WHAT WAS THAT???? It is never a fun thing to watch the Cardinals lose to the Cubs and this game was no different.  When it went into extra innings, I...
