Cardinals fire Mike Shildt over ‘philosophical differences’

The Cardinals fired former National League manager of the year Mike Shildt over organizational differences Thursday, just one week after St. Louis lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers on a walk-off homer in the wild-card game. Cardinals president John Mozeliak said the firing was “something that popped up recently,” but he refused to expand on what he called “philosophical differences” between Shildt, the coaching staff and the front office. “All I can say is where we felt the team was going, we were struggling to get on the same page,” Mozeliak said.
