2013-10-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mike. Why hasn't Shelby Miller pitched this off-season? Obviously Mike Matheny has lots of options at his disposal but is there something specific going on with Miller such as a hidden injury or an attitude problem?
(mmcduffe from Ottawa)
I don't have the answer, but I've heard a few theories. One theory is that Miller is gassed, and his 12% strikeout rate in September is a sign of this. Miller has become the in-case-of-emergency-break glass guy. Matheny's use of his pen has been a bit of a mystery to me. I get that he has Carlos Martinez and Trevor Rosenthal as a very strong 1-2 punch, but there have been games where he seems to be going to the well with lesser relievers. Miller and Edward Mujica don't seem to belong on the roster, and Matheny's non-usage of them is a little odd. (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any idea what Ryan Jackson did to get himself so deeply planted in Mike Matheny's doghouse? I mean, he's not going to be a star, but at this point, he'd be an upgrade on Pete Kozma, wouldn't he? Not that that's a very high bar...
(Bill from New Mexico)
I agree and I've wondered the same! Jackson was stuck out in LF when I saw Memphis back in June, and that confused me as well. (Jason Cole)
2012-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who should I send to the bullpen once Chris Carpenter is healthy (if ever?) Not who "will" I, but who "should" I?
(M. Matheny from under the Arch)
Doubling up on Cardinals questions. This is a tough one. Lynn has pitched too well to demote him back to the bullpen. Maybe Lohse? It's such a tiny sample (and mostly from several years ago) that I'm embarrassed to cite it, but his career K/BB in the bullpen is 3.00, compared to 2.07 as a starter. If you subscribe to the idea that the least talented/successful starter, and/or the one with no future development at stake, should be the one to go, then Lohse seems like the guy. Good problem to have, though, as they say.

By the way, I like to think that Mike Matheny actually hangs out under the Arch while he's pondering roster moves like this one. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Easy, obvious one to get you started. What's your opinion on Mike Matheny as TLR replacement in St. Louis?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Well, I’m not sure if any managerial choice evaluation is easy or obvious, especially for a guy who has zero prior managing experience, but I don’t think Matheny is necessarily a bad choice. Yes, there’s the experience thing, but he is well-liked within the organization, by fans, and by the players, which is important. He’s also a former catcher with a high baseball IQ. Whether or not he’ll make the kinds of moves we sabermetric types like to see from a manager is yet to be seen. Former player types generally don’t tend to, but it’s not as if the MLB managerial bar is set super high in this regard. Mozeliak said he’ll talk with him and provide him with important data to help him make decisions, so I think Matheny will be a good enough choice. The one drawback you could maybe point to is that Albert Pujols reportedly would have preferred Oquendo, though making a managerial decision based on one player—especially one you could lose anyway—probably isn’t good policy.
