Cardinals manager Mike Matheny isn't going anywhere anytime soon. St. Louis has inked the skipper to a three-year contract extension through the 2017 season. Since taking over for legendary manager Tony La Russa, Matheny has led the Cards to the playoffs in both of his seasons at the helm. The former catcher guided the club to the World Series this past season, losing to the Boston Red Sox in six games.
