MLB Cardinals Extend Mozeliak's Contract Through '18 Season
The MLB Cardinals yesterday announced a two-year extension with GM John Mozeliak. The contract "is intended to keep Mozeliak in place" through the '18 season, one year beyond manager Mike Matheny’s current deal. Mozeliak’s second extension in as many years "gives the Cardinals one of the most secure" manager-GM duos in the majors. The contract, financial terms of which were not disclosed, gives Chair Bill DeWitt Jr. the "continuity and credibility he craves" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 4/13).
Meanwhile, the BOSTON GLOBE's Nick Cafardo ranks the best MLB organizations, with the Cardinals at the top of the list (BOSTON GLOBE, 4/13).
