Matheny's ability to habla en espanol has helped in a troubled Cardinals offseason

SAN DIEGO -- Mike Matheny appeared to be finished with his half-hour media session at the Winter Meetings in San Diego when one final microphone was placed on the table and someone asked two more questions. In Spanish. The Cardinals' manager looked a little uncertain about the prospect of being interviewed in Spanish by ESPN Deportes, which can be seen throughout the baseball-playing...

St. Louis Cardinals: Matheny to give up #22 to Heyward

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny has worn #22 on his jersey for much of his career. Matheny even started a charity organization with that number, the Catch Twenty-Two Foundation. His twitter name is even MikeMatheny22. So you can imagine how hard it is to give up this icon that has meant so much to him. Matheny has offered to give up his number and give it to new right fielder...

Mike Matheny to release book on managing in February

It has only been a few short days since the St. Louis Cardinals were eliminated from the post-season by the San Francisco Giants.  Many in St. Louis still are fuming about the way it all went down. For most, it felt like a missed opportunity, with the main culprit of blame of course being the manager, Mike Matheny. Now, according to Amazon, the St. Louis manager that so many in...

St Louis Cardinals: how much is Matheny to blame?

The St. Louis Cardinals were knocked out of the postseason in game 5 of the NLCS following a bullpen implosion leading to a walkoff home run despite the team firing on all cylinders most of the night. Highly criticized is manager Mike Matheny’s decision to bring in starter Michael Wacha in the 9th inning despite Wacha having not pitched in a month. How much of this game was decided...

Idea: Why Not Send Mike Matheny To The Minors?

It’s over. The 2014 Cardinals season ended last night with a Travis Ishikawa home run deep to right field off Mike Wacha (!), sending the Giants to the World Series. Sigh. ON TO THE NEXT ONE! IT’S TIME TO FINISH OFF THE REST OF MISSOURI! #SFGiants #Royals #STLCards — San Francisco Giants (@SFGiantsFans) October 17, 2014 I suppose it’d be one...

Mike Matheny’s logic behind not using his closer in a tie game will infuriate you

The St. Louis Cardinals saw their season end Thursday night with their top two relievers still in the bullpen while a guy who hadn’t pitched in a month gave up a walk, single and walk-off 3-run home run. It wasn’t exactly Mike Matheny’s finest hour as a manager. But what will infuriate most enlightened baseball...Read More

Seth Maness’ girlfriend criticized Mike Matheny on his Twitter account

St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny came under a firestorm of criticism for his managing during the Cardinals’ 5-4, ten inning loss in Game 3 of the NLCS to the Giants. One of the critics appeared to be Cardinals reliever Seth Maness, who was retweeting negative thoughts of Matheny after the game. Huh, well that’s something. Maness only threw six pitches in the ninth and...

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...
