Cards shuf­fle man­age­ment

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

The St. Louis Car­di­nals pro­moted Gen­eral Man­ager John Mozeliak to pres­i­dent of base­ball op­er­a­tions and Michael Girsch to GM on Fri­day. Both re­ceived con­tracts through 2020. Mozeliak has served as the team’s gen­eral man­ager since Oc­to­ber 2007. “Over the past 10 years, base­ball op­er­a­tions have be­come more com­plex and

de­mand­ing,” Car­di­nals CEO Bill DeWitt Jr. said. “Giv­ing Girsch more day-to-day re­spon­si­bil­ity will en­able Mo (Mozeliak) to fo­cus on strate­gic ini­tia­tives and long-range plan­ning.” The Car­di­nals en­tered their three-game home se­ries Fri­day against the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als four games un­der .500, yet just 3½ games be­hind the Mil­wau­kee Brew­ers in the NL Cen­tral.
