Cardinals Expect To Retain Mike Matheny For 2017

Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. says that skipper Mike Matheny will remain at the club’s helm next year, as Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Matheny’s contract runs expires after 2017. There had been at least some outside questions of Matheny’s status, given the Cards’ somewhat disappointing 82-75 mark with five games left to play. St. Louis is...

Mozeliak: Cardinals Intend To Improve Fielding This Winter

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak called his team’s defense “porous” and suggested that the club would look to improve in that area this winter, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Bombing Away Instead of Just Bombing

One thing that we’ve said over and over about this year’s version of the Cardinals (and, indeed, many other years as well) is that they seem to be allergic to momentum.  Big wins never spark long winning streaks.  Thankfully, it goes both ways. A day after completely not showing up, the Cardinals gave an early [...]

Column: Don’t overreact to Monday’s depressed Cardinals attendance

While tens of millions of Americans watched Monday night’s Presidential debate, a much smaller number watched the Cardinals flounder against the last-place Cincinnati Reds. Only around 35,000 fans watched an absolutely brutal game. The Reds don’t have Billy Hamilton, the base-stealing threat that absolutely torments Yadier Molina. Yet that didn’t stop them from running roughshod...

Both St. Louis & Los Angeles audiences tuned out the Rams’ return

St. Louis is understandably bitter about the way the Rams franchise left for Los Angeles. Los Angeles, meanwhile, is full of Los Angeles sports fans. When the Rams played their first game since returning to the once-again home of L.A., both fanbases did what you’d expect them to do. Not care.

Matt Holliday’s Absence Not Inconsequential for St. Louis

We don’t talk much about Matt Holliday these days. It’s been awhile since he was one of the best players in baseball. Probably the last time you could have honestly made that claim was in 2014, when his 132 wRC+ was 28th-best in the game.
