It’s always nice to see an ex-Giants player making headlines. The Cardinals have announced that ex-Giants catcher Mike Matheny will replace Tony La Russa as the Cardinals manger. It’s a two-year deal, and a nice starting gig for a first time coach. The Cardinals are the 2011 World Series Champions, but I’m sure you already knew that! Matheny’s career was cut short after a series of foul balls off of his mask gave him a serious concussion. He officially announced his retirement (Press Release) from baseball on February 1, 2007. Matheny wasn’t known for his bat. However, he was known for what he can do behind the plate. He is a 4 times Gold Glove Award winner. Congrats Coach Matheny! ~King of Cali (Steven) ———-——–—-——-——––———————-—————————————————-You can follow SF Giants Rumors Facebook page for more Giants updates!
