MIKE MATHENY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Probably Time For Matheny To Own Mistakes, Not Make Excuses

This is St. Louis. We take a bunch of crap for calling ourselves the best fans in baseball but it’s all in good fun. Through all the ribbing from places like Deadspin for #BFIBing, one thing doesn’t ever come up – the question of do Cardinals fans actually KNOW baseball. We do. It’s not fair to say that Mike Matheny cost the Cardinals a win last night in Pittsburgh. Even...

Clutch hitting: Matheny believes there's more where that came from

ST. LOUIS -- Mike Matheny refuses to give in. Nearly 80 percent through the season and the Cardinals' manager still doesn't admit that the historic success the Cardinals enjoyed last year in the timely hitting department was little more than a historical outlier. You can be sure he's familiar with the numbers, too. He knows that this year's .246 average with runners...

Mike Matheny rips critics of Cardinals coaching staff

The defending National League champions rank 29th in baseball in runs scored this season and have scored three or fewer runs in nine of their last 16 games.

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...

Matheny: Cardinals suffer 'ugliest loss' of year

SAN DIEGO -- At least the St. Louis Cardinals didn't get shut out. Little else went right for the Cardinals on Wednesday night. Rookie Jesse Hahn held St. Louis to one run and four hits in seven innings and Jedd Gyorko and Will Venable each homered and drove in four runs to lead the San Diego Padres to a 12-1 victory Wednesday night. "It was probably our ugliest loss of...

Everything Mike Matheny did wrong in Friday’s loss to the Cubs

I’ll likely end up forgetting something, so if I do, by all means leave it in the comment section. This is sort of a cathartic exercise for me, as I’ll attempt to spell out all of the managerial mistakes that I noticed by Mike Matheny in Friday’s 7-6 loss to the Chicago Cubs. 1.Starting Allen [...]

Mike Matheny Currently Ranks Last In MLB For Replay Challenges

There are a whole generation of baseball fans being born now that are never going to experience these: The replay system in baseball is here to stay. And if we’re being really honest, it’s for the best. Not only for the teams and fans, but for those poor managers blood pressure. So much stack to blow! Through the All-Star break, managers had challenged 606 calls and had 318...

Cards manager addresses Carlos Martinez's Twitter porn favorites

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. On Tuesday, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny awkwardly discussed how the favorties page on pitcher Carlos Martinez’s Twitter account was chock-full of pornographic images.
