Fired St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny holds no ill will

Acknowledging that his job had been on the line since last season, fired St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny still expressed thanks to his now-former team.

“I’ve got nothing but gratitude,” Matheny told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Sunday, “and this goes way back. I got two new lives with this organization, first when [manager] Tony La Russa and [pitching coach] Dave Duncan and [general manager] Walt Jocketty gave me a chance to have a second life as a player to play in a place I already called home.”

Matheny, who was dismissed Saturday in his seventh season with the club, told the newspaper that discussions about his future began in 2017, as the Cardinals missed the playoffs for the second straight season after reaching the postseason in each of Matheny’s first four years as manager.
