MIKE MATHENY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Top 10 MLB first basemen for 2017

Pardon Me; Here’s Another Bout of Optimism

As much grief as I tend to give Mike Matheny during the course of the year during the middle of games when tensions are high…I would like to take a moment to praise this man.

That daily activity around 3pm where the Cards release the starting 9 and people use a ton of brain cells about who is there or who doesn’t belong there? It gets tiring after a while. For a while, I engaged in the activity. I complained about Randal Grichuk hitting 8th(in retrospect,...
