Oliver Marmol Is A Manager Made For These Times.

Bernie Miklasz with the inside story.

I can’t say that Oliver Marmol was born to manage the Cardinals. But this is true: he was raised to manage the Cardinals. The inevitable became official on Tuesday morning, when chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. and president of baseball operations John Mozeliak presided over a video news conference to introduce their choice as manager. As soon as the job became open I listed Marmol as the frontrunner, and this was his job all along. There was little if any suspense to the job search.

Marmol was raised as a Cardinal.

And now will lead the Cardinals.

Okay, young man. Let’s see what you got.
