Mike Maddux has total control of the Cards pitching staff including , moves to the Pen. I love it never been a fan of Matheny when it came to that . His philosophy is different all together . I love what I'm reading . Plus having Hosea Okindo back on third as well as infield coach and a great positioning coach . Mathenys control has diminished does that mean anything who knows time will tell.
I took great encouragement from what Andrew has said.
He is known for being fairly vague with answers and deliberately not trying to commit to anything so for him to say the "ship has sailed" on surgery makes me feel pretty confident and is a strong statement from the man himself.
Also, did anyone else notice how much more upbeat he was than previous media appearances? From the get-go he was so much more positive in his tone and overall. Seems to be a happy young man, really looking forward to getting back on the field.
