MIKE MATHENY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Matheny: Wacha to make start Sunday after impressing in recent bullpen sessions

ST. LOUIS -- As Mike Matheny sat down for his daily media scrum Wednesday afternoon, Michael Wacha had just finished a throwing session in the Cardinals' bullpen. When Matheny said he would be laying out the rotation's plans for the weekend after he checked "to see how things went out there," the inference was obvious to anyone who had watched Wacha's bullpen...

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny can relate to Stanton incident

  It should come as no surprise that Mike Matheny is a leading proponent of player safety, from the big leagues all the way down to tee ball. Just like Giancarlo Stanton, the St. Louis Cardinals manager was struck in the face by a pitch and felt lucky to walk away minus only teeth and blood. Concussions ultimately ended his playing career. The permanent indentation in his left shin...

Matheny caught off guard after Lackey gets tossed in the third inning

The Cardinals played like they're ready for this trip to be over Tuesday night in a 4-2 loss at Cincinnati. Starter John Lackey had a bad night, the defense failed to make a couple of makeable plays that resulted in runs and their bats didn't show a whole lot of life. The Cardinals were held to six hits and put only two runners in scoring position after they had taken a 2...

The bases were loaded with one out for Yadier Molina, who hit a fly ball to medium depth right field. Brewers right fielder Gerardo Parra picked up some momentum and fired a one-hop strike to catcher Martin Maldonado, who tagged out Jon...

10 hottest MLB storylines to follow in September

3. Three-way fight for the NL CentralThe St. Louis Cardinals haven’t given up. They could have easily conceded a second place finish and settled for a battle in the Wild Card chase. Instead, Mike Matheny’s club showed the same resolve that got them to the World Series in 2006, 2011 and 2013. Having won each of its last six contests, St. Louis has taken command of the Central...

Criticism of coaches annoys Matheny

The Cardinals’ season-long search for a more productive offense — one like they had when leading the league in runs last season — has prompted a trade, pressed a rookie into the lineup, and, manager Mike Matheny described Wednesday, drawn some “cheap” criticism for the team’s coaches, such as hitting coach John Mabry. “You have two factors,” Matheny said before the...

Trying To Be Rational About Mike Matheny

Deep breaths. Deep breaths. The 2014 Cardinals were supposed to be a powerhouse. Coming off a World Series run in 2013 on the backs of a bunch of 21-23 year olds is pretty much a dream scenario for any franchise. Weaknesses at CF and SS were appeased by acquiring Peter Bourjos and Jhonny Peralta respectively. This team was locked and loaded for another deep playoff run. Then 2014...

In a series of truly unfortunate and hilarious events, the St. Louis Cardinals were obligated to address how one of the team’s players Twitter accounts was populated with porn.
