Cards Extend Contracts of Top ManagersJUPITER, Fla. (AP) - The St.
Louis Cardinals have agreed to a three-year contract extension with general
manager John Mozeliak and exercised the 2014 option for manager Mike Matheny.
The 44-year-old Mozeliak will now be with
the Cardinals through 2016. Matheny, in
the second year of a two-year contract, is now guaranteed through next year.
Terms were not announced.
Chairman William DeWitt says the
management team shares the same vision and he praised both managers, saying
Matheny did a "remarkable" job in his first season, coming within a
win of taking the team to a second straight World Series.
