Cardinals shock St. Louis with firing of Mike Shildt

October 19, 2021

This week on the Sports Plus Podcast, Frank Cusumano and Andy Mohler join Corey Miller to talk about the biggest story in St. Louis sports: The firing of Cardinals manager Mike Shildt.

It was an abrupt and somewhat confusing divorce that was only characterized as "philosophical differences" by John Mozeliak, and Shildt himself declined to elaborate much more.

We break down the shock of the firing, the things we didn't like about it, who could be next at the helm for the Cardinals and hear Mike Shildt's entire statement on this episode of the Sports Plus Podcast.
