    Is Mike Matheny the next Pete Rose?

    Matheny lost his home in legal fight with bank over business debt

    As a Cards fan, hiring a new manager with a $4 million debt scares me. STL is a classy organization and this reflects poorly on them. Hopefully he doesn't do anything stupid because of his horrendous debt.

    I wouldn't hire any manage that carries a balance on his credit card, it just reflects poorly.

    I think the idea is that he obviously will take to gambling to pay off his debts, because it's the only recourse any debtor ever sees. After taking to gambling, he will feel compelled to bet on Cardinals baseball, or even forced to do so by the gamblers who truly control him.

    Will this end in a prostitution sting? I'm trying to make other unconnected conclusions.

    If he's lucky. It will probably be much, much worse. I'm assuming an international slavery ring.

    He just needs to plant steroids in Pujlos's locker, and blackmail him. Problem solved.

    Wasn't he the guy who got banned from MLB for life, for his gambling problem and betting on his own team? I don't remember it being for a foreclosure on his house, but I didn't read the article either.

    I'm an idiot?!?!?!?! I don't have my head in the sand, denying there's a problem. I'm just facing the possibilities for you Cardinal fans who don't have the guts to look them in the eye.

    Everyone says it's not a big deal until this stuff completely blows up. When Matheny trends worldwide for all the wrong reasons, you heard it here first. We didn't back down from the truth. Neither should you.

    Slavery, dog fighting rings and prostitution in the near future. I can see it now. Where do I get in on that action?
