The Royals hired ex-Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and it brought KC and St. Louis fans together

It’s not often that Kansas City and St. Louis baseball fans agree on anything — let alone console each other — but news on Friday afternoon that ex-Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was joining the Royals as a special advisor almost seemed to bring the two sides together.

And not necessarily in a good way.

It appears neither fanbase particularly likes Matheny and they haven’t been too quiet about the matter on social media, either.

How quickly they turn….

Well, Joe Torre had a rough go in Stl and then went on to a hall of fame record in NY. Matheny could still turn out ok. I just think his inability to manage a bullpen, which should have been a strength, was his downfall. He seemed to struggle with how to bring along young players as well. I think early success went to his head and he wouldn’t change.

This will be he first job in baseball other than player or manager, correct?

No, he spent at least a year in the Cardinals front office before becoming manager.
