Mike Matheny was a poor-hitting catcher who was outstanding defensively, however. He won four Gold Gloves during his career. he went a full season without committing an error in 2003. He retired when his doctor refused to give him medical clearance following a concussion that made him miss the last four months of 2006. He became a minor league instructor in the St. Louis Cardinals organization and on November 13, 2011, was named to replace Tony LaRussa as the club's manager in 2012. He defeated five other finalists for the job, but was given huge shoes to fill, given LaRussa's tremendous managerial record, capped by a World Series title two weeks earlier. In spite of his lack of managerial experience, Matheny had a very solid season in 2012, overcoming the loss of Albert Pujols through free agency, and P Adam Wainwright and 1B Lance Berkman to early-season injuries. The team started slowly but played better as the year advanced, finally making the postseason as the second wild card team in the National League. The Cards then defeated the Atlanta Braves in the first-ever National League Wild Card Game and upset the Washington Nationals in the NLDS, 3 games to 2, thanks to a late-inning comeback in Game 5. The Cardinals then took a three-game to one lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NLCS, but the Giants' pitching then took control of the series, and the Cardinals' second-consecutive Cinderella season came to an end, whith Matheny earning kudos all around for his leadership. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported shortly after Matheny's hiring that he was in serious financial straits, having lost nearly $4 million on a land development deal in the suburbs of St. Louis, MO whose value collapsed with the crash of the real estate market. He lost his lavish home after being unable to make interest payments on the loans he had taken out to finance the deal, and his case was heading to the Missouri Supreme Court to decide the matter of how much personal property banks can repossess when such a business loan falters. The bank sued to recover some of the $12 million it had advanced to Matheny and his business partner; a St. Louis County judge ruled against him in January of 2013, putting him on the spot for a large financial loss. Matheny explained however that he was not suffering "financial woes" because of the business loss, having relied on the support of family and friends to move on and that the issue had not affected his job performance in any way.
