Injury notes: Luke Gregerson strains oblique; Jacob deGrom set for first spring start

Presumptive Cardinals closer Luke Gregerson is dealing with a strained oblique, writes Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. While such injuries can often take upward of a month to heal, it seems that Gregerson’s could be more minor, with manager Mike Matheny referring to it only as a “little setback” that “doesn’t seem very bad.” That said, doctors haven’t placed a time...

The MLB managerial hot seat index: Who's next to go?

In the high-demand, ever-changing world of coaching in professional sports, it's a fair assessment that every head coaching job is a temporary one. The window to show and prove is quick and short, and in the wide-open terrain of Major League Baseball, that is especially true.

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.
