So who will be the next manager?

In my opinion, it comes down to Oliver Marmol or Stubby Clapp. In fact, I believe they are the only two choices John Mozeliak and the Cardinals are seriously considering.

Between the two, I believe Oliver Marmol will be the next manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. To me, from what I’m reading from folks like Rick Hummel of the Post Dispatch, Katie Woo of The Athletic, and Dayn Perry of CBSsports.com, Marmol is the guy. He seems to make everyone’s list.

Let me say this, I have advocated on social media, that maybe some fresh blood in this organization is needed. Bringing in a manager from outside the current coaching staff could be a positive boost.

Next. 5 free agents the St. Louis Cardinals should keep in 2022. dark

But it’s not going happen. The next manager was in the dugout this year, and it’s likely to be Oliver Marmol.
