Cardinals manager Mike Matheny can relate to Stanton incident

  It should come as no surprise that Mike Matheny is a leading proponent of player safety, from the big leagues all the way down to tee ball. Just like Giancarlo Stanton, the St. Louis Cardinals manager was struck in the face by a pitch and felt lucky to walk away minus only teeth and blood. Concussions ultimately ended his playing career.

ST. LOUIS -- By beating the Rockies Sunday afternoon, rookie left-hander Marco Gonzales did more than push the Cardinals a game closer to the NL Central title.  He also gave the Cardinals considerably more to think about moving forward, as in this week, next month and the 2015 season. First of all, Gonzales' strong outing probably earned him at least one more start in the regular...
