MIKE MATHENY RUMORS & GOSSIP

John Lackey, Mike Matheny clear the air

  John Lackey wasn't exactly thrilled when he was removed from Tuesday's game, but the pitcher and the manager have since had a talk and resolved the difference of opinion, according to Cardinals.com. “He gets where I am coming from,” Lackey told Cardinals.com. “I get where he's coming from.” Matheny called on Peter Bourjos to pinch-hit for Lackey and both parties said that...

St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny Does Something Cool.

As detailed here in an article by Derrick Goold, Mike Matheny did something cool. I admit, I’m not Matheny’s biggest fan, and have been very critical in the past, especially the preference he seems to have of playing veterans or “his guys” over rookies or trade acquisitions. I’ll probably be critical of him in the upcoming season [...]

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...
