Cardinals Have To Get Better At Replay Challenges

Friends, I know it doesn’t feel significant, but it is. Mike Matheny and the Cardinals have to get better at replay challenges. Sunday’s 1-0 win was a brisk, tense game. With no margin for error, Wainwright pitched a gem and the game winning RBI came off Matt Holliday’s home run in the top of the 1st. Should it have been so close? Before Holliday’s at bat, Kolten Wong hit...

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 [...]

Cardinals have needs but no clear targets as trade deadline nears

ST. LOUIS -- Following a disappointing three-game finish to their latest homestand, the Cardinals are off Thursday and will have another off day Monday. That will make three off days in an eight-day stretch following the four-day All-Star break. All that down time will allow Mike Matheny to continue with a four-man rotation until next weekend. Who takes that fifth spot then seems...

A tale of two slumps: Craig and Taveras aren't making Matheny's job any easier

ST. LOUIS -- If ever there has been more fuss made over a guy hitting .200, it must have been before my time. And I'm quite old. First, the pleas came to get Oscar Taveras to the majors. Now that he's arrived, apparently for the long haul, the cries come daily to put him in the lineup. On one hand, I get it. The 22-year right fielder is considered by the Cardinals -- and...

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...

Is Oscar Getting Enough Playing Time?

Every day when the Cardinals lineup comes out, twitter stirs. I am sure Mike Matheny pounds out that lineup and has a soft little chuckle as he hits print, send and exits his office. When you have a team like the St. Louis Cardinals streaking towards another playoff appearance and riding the roller coaster of [...]

Clayton Kershaw Isn’t Starting The All-Star Game Because Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny Picked Cardinals Pitcher Adam Wainwright

Clayton Kershaw, who is in the middle of a ridiculous season, isn’t starting the All-Star Game for the National League. Instead, the manager of the NL team — Mike Matheny — picked Adam Wainwright over Kershaw.   It won’t be Clayton Kershaw starting the ASG. Adam Wainwright just walked to the podium. — Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) July 14, 2014 When he’s not choosing the...

Get up, baby! Cards crush four homers in come-from-behind victory in Milwaukee

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny preaches that every game is as important as every other game, no matter the time, place or opponent. But he was singing a little different tune after his team pulled out a stirring, 7-6 come-from-behind victory at Milwaukee on Friday night. "Someone asked me if I had a favorite win this year. Nothing even close to this," Matheny said. "...
