One day at a time, Cardinals adding to best record in majors

ST. LOUIS -- Mike Matheny has zero interest in scanning the daily statistics that show just how efficiently the St. Louis Cardinals are dealing with the opposition. Matheny prefers that his players ignore all that, too, just as they have the hacking investigation involving the Houston Astros that seems to have quieted down. The players can keep the franchise with the majors' best...

Matheny doesn't want Cardinals to ponder their fast start amid adversity

While being 20 games over .500 isn't out of the ordinary for the St. Louis Cardinals, getting there with 100 to play is rare even for the most successful club in NL history. The Cardinals, who haven't reached the mark this quickly since World War II, will try to keep rolling Monday when they open a two-game home series with the Minnesota Twins. St. Louis (41-21) went 20 over for...

2015 MLB Draft profile: Tate Matheny

Throughout his baseball career, Tate Matheny has been asked a lot of questions about his father, St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny. That’s starting to change, however. Lately, all the focus is on Tate’s own performances on the diamond.

Trying To Be Rational About Mike Matheny

Deep breaths. Deep breaths. The 2014 Cardinals were supposed to be a powerhouse. Coming off a World Series run in 2013 on the backs of a bunch of 21-23 year olds is pretty much a dream scenario for any franchise. Weaknesses at CF and SS were appeased by acquiring Peter Bourjos and Jhonny Peralta respectively. This team was locked and loaded for another deep playoff run. Then 2014...
