Matheny's goal for doubleheader: Keep everyone healthy

ATLANTA -- St. Louis manager Mike Matheny has a primary goal for the Cardinals' season-ending doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves: Keep everyone healthy for the postseason. "We can get some good out of it," Matheny said. "We'll get some guys some playing time. We'll take a run at winning two games." The Cardinals' game Saturday night was postponed by rain. They'll play the Braves...

Mike Matheny and Trevor Rosenthal fail to close in painful defeat 

First, Let me point out that Trevor Rosenthal blew his first save since July 12th on Sunday afternoon in the regular season finale at Busch Stadium. However, it was the second appearance in a row where he was “beaten”. In other words, not good enough. Not even close. Afterwards I was mad at Rosenthal for coming in and lighting a 3-1 lead on fire for the fans to watch burn. I...

'Visual learner' Matheny a fan of using iPads in dugout during games

The St. Louis Cardinals have begun using an iPad in the dugout, with Major League Baseball's permission, for purposes of scouting and viewing charts related to in-game strategy. It's something MLB has started implementing as means of helping the game advance into today's tech-savvy age, and manager Mike Matheny told Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he and his coaching...

Jon Jay & Mike Matheny Had A Rough Night On Twitter

The Cardinals look to have righted the ship (for the moment). They notched their 3rd win in succession last night. And with the Pirates loss, extended their NL Central lead to 4 games with 17 left to play. You might have noticed that Tommy Pham got a rare(ish) start. And that he did OK. Ever since the return of Jon Jay, Pham’s playing time has been kneecapped. Jay has ‘produced’...

Of All The Days For Mike Matheny To Make That Call

It’s almost like it HAD to happen. In Wednesday’s Post-Dispatch, Joe Strauss wrote a piece with the headline “Matheny Overdue For Some Credit” outlining several reasons why the Cardinals manager should not only be considered as a Manager of the Year candidate in 2015, but why he should be the front-runner. The case for managerial respect is impressive: Best record in MLB...

Cardinals: Stop complaining about Mike Matheny’s lineup

Folks, listen carefully. It’s time to stop complaining about the St. Louis Cardinals lineup. 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,...

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...
