Cardinals' Garcia, a tough critic, not satisfied with latest outing

Jaime Garcia is tough to please. At least when it comes to evaluating his owner performances. The lefty returned to the rotation last week after missing a month with a groin injury, yet even after a two-hit outing over five-plus innings Sunday, he wasn't happy. "I've got to do a better job in five innings," Garcia told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as he described frustrating control...

No Way Cardinals Are Riding & Dying With This Current Offense

So you’re Jaime Garcia. You’re back after nursing a groin pull back to health for over a month. And while your teammates weren’t doing much offensively during your 7 previous starts in 2015 you figured that some time away would give the Cardinals management (and players) opportunity to sort things out. Nah, bruh. For the 4th (!) time in 8 starts this season, the Cardinals provided...

Cards rotation to get boost with Tuesday return of lefty Garcia

The St. Louis Cardinals rotation is about to get a boost when lefty Jaime Garcia is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. Out since late June with a groin strain, Garcia pitched the first five innings of a combined no-hitter for Low-A Peoria on Thursday night. It was cleared to return to the rotation after the one rehab start. Cardinals general manager John...

Jaime Garcia & The Summertime Sadness

On June 24th, it was called a slight groin tweak. But as it is with Jaime Garcia, nothing is every slight; tweaks are not a thing.  And so on July 5th, the Cardinals officially put the Cardinals starter on the 15-day disabled list. Take it away Lana! What more can really be said? Jaime Garica is our Summertime Sadness. +++++ Posting a 1.69 ERA and surrendering only 9 runs in 7...

When A Cramp Is More Than A Cramp

Jaime Garcia lowered his ERA to 1.69 and earned his 3rd win of 2015 Wednesday night in Miami. And on Thursday morning when I went to look at to see if I’d missed anything overnight, this was the top of the homepage: The WWL was sitting on that David Schoenfield piece and after another stellar outing, they ran with it. After all, it was very topical. The Cardinals batted...

Cardinals: Enjoy Jaime Garcia while you can

One of the most bittersweet feelings in Cardinal Nation is watching St. Louis Cardinals’ lefthander Jaime Garcia work. When healthy, the man is a top of the rotation starter. He gobbles innings up and makes hitters unintentionally reinvent their swing at home plate. It’s ugly for the opposition when Garcia is on his game and the Cards thrive on it. In the midst of a rotation...

Cardinals: Bats Waste Strong Effort From Jaime Garcia

The bittersweet haze of watching Jaime Garcia work has settled in again. As my STLSM colleague Corey Rudd pointed out tonight, Cards fans are falling into the Garcia trap feet first after the lefthander’s brilliant seven inning outing Monday night against the Milwaukee Brewers. In a losing effort, Garcia allowed only one run on three hits with four strikeouts and zero walks. The...

St. Louis Cardinals: Can Garcia stabilize the rotation?

The St. Louis Cardinals just wrapped up only their second losing series of the 2015 season, dropping two of three games to the Detroit Tigers. With a gassed bullpen and uninspiring performances from several important areas, the Cardinals appear to be much worse off than their 25-12 start would appear on paper: most notably, the lack of a permanent fifth starter in the wake of Adam...

St. Louis Cardinals have pitching depth, but Jaime Garcia still vital to starting rotation

The St. Louis Cardinals have as much, and in many cases more, talent on their pitching staff than any team in Major League Baseball, but a pitcher who missed the final four months of the 2013 season could still be a key factor in how the staff looks in 2014. Lefthanded starting pitcher Jaime Garcia was 5-2 with a 3.58 earned-run average through nine starts into mid-May when he finally...
