Seven Consecutive Wins is Cardinals’ Best under Matheny

In my opinion, one of the strengths as well as weaknesses of Mike Matheny’s first three-plus clubs as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals is that the team never seemed to get too high or too low. We saw consistently successful rosters that rarely reeled off major winning streaks, but usually avoided long losing skids as well. Winning two games of a given series was a far more common...

The big surprise, even to me, in Tuesday’s rankings is Tyler Lyons checking in at third overall with a 113.1 rating.
