Mike Shildt’s non-comment on the Cardinals’ exit speaks volumes

Former St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt has declined to comment on his departure but said he would love to be skippered at the MLB level again.

Schildt was fired due to “philosophical differences” with the organization…whatever that means.

The cards then decided to part ways rather than continue down the road. Oli Marmol has done well in his freshman year at St. Louis while Shildt is the bench coach with the Padres. However, he has urges to be a big league manager again.

“I’ve won my whole life,” said Schildt. “I’m more confident now that I’m ready to do it again. And win.”

Shieldt won in St. Louis. He can win again. But he doesn’t want to discuss his Cards exit and prefers not to break any bridges. It’s probably for the best.

“I don’t want to warm up a lot in public,” Shildt said, per the St. Louis mail delivery. “A combination of things happened. Another time. I don’t think it is.”

Cardinals: Where will Mike Schildt lead next?

As an available veteran manager, Shildt will surely get another opportunity. He became NL Manager of the Year in 2019 and reached the NL playoffs in 2020 and 2021. Unfortunately, the disconnect between him and the St. Louis front office proved too great to bridge.

Shildt was reportedly less open to analysis – a common issue these days between experienced skippers and the front office. Unless you’re Joe Maddon, a seasoned manager is more likely to rely on the eye test than what an analytical mind would tell them. Schildt is no exception to this rule.

In terms of his card exit, Shildt has evolved and then some.

“The past is the past,” said Schildt. “It’s time to move on.”

Yet even if you comment on things, you can say it still stings. Shildt didn’t expect to get fired and can you blame him? He led his team into the postseason three straight seasons.

A change of scenery did Schildt good. As for his next move, we’ll be keeping an eye out just like everyone else.
