Mike Matheny to be named Cardinals manager tomorrow

I just wrote two days ago that I was hoping Mike Matheny was on top of the managerial candidates list, and it turns out he was.  No time is set for the announcement of Mathney taking over at this time, but KSDK and Frank Cusumano is reporting that it will indeed take place on Monday.  I have to say I’m pleased with this decision, as I believe Terry Francona was overrated and had too much baggage.  I believed Jose Oquendo wouldn’t do well with the media on a daily basis.  I think Matheny is a great choice, and the future of the Cardinals continues to look bright.  I will have more thoughts on the situation tomorrow after the news conference and the introduction of your new St. Louis Cardinals manager, Mike Matheny.

Update–The news conference for Mike Matheny will take place tomorrow at 11:00 AM CST.

    Do you have an inside source or something? How in the hell did you ever think Matheny was going to get the job over Francona and Sandberg? Anyway, good call.

    NEWS FLASH: The blogger didn’t call Matheny being hired. He said he hoped he would be the one, was at the top of his list, and thought he might be at the top of the Cards list. What will you all do now that you don’t have TLR to kick around?

    NEWS FLASH 2: Matheny will fail as manager, and the Cards will be lucky to win 70 games without TLR. TLR was worth 20 wins a year, at least. You people never cease to amaze me.

      You have some serious issues, don’t you. This was the first place I heard that Matheny was hired as the Cards manager. It appears JD is on top of the inner workings of the Cards. In a way he did get it right with calling for Matheny. It also seems everyone is grateful that they received their discounts for sports memorabilia but you.

    Matheny seems like a born leader like MO said in the press conference today. I hope it translates to on the field success. And like others said besides for the clown in the room (TLRHOF), thanks for the discounts.
