A great catch • Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt and general manager John Mozeliak described new Cardials manager Mike Matheny as the “perfect” fit for the team to replace Tony La Russa. Mozeliak said the Cardinals began putting together a list of 35 candidates in mid-August when La Russa first privately signaled he would step down. From that list, the Cardinals interviewed six candidates. On Monday, they formally introduced Matheny as the team’s new skipper.
