Game 109 Recap: Cubs 7, Nationals 4

Going into today’s game, there were an awful lot of “NLDS Preview” takes for a team that had lost three in a row, was sitting at six over .500, and was all of half a game ahead of the team that somehow still employs Matt Garza. So naturally, the Cubs and Nationals played a remarkable […]

The Calendar Versus The Rotation

Two weeks ago, I investigated the state of the Brewers rotation in order to price out the benefits of acquiring an ace such as Sonny Gray. With rumors saying Milwaukee is finished with the Gray talks on account of Oakland’s high asking price, Brewers fans and analysts may expect a true regression from the rotation. However, it appears that there is another weapon in the Brewers’...

Garza using spring training to work on off-speed pitches

PHOENIX -- Matt Garza stuck with the game plan Thursday, which meant the Brewers right-hander fed the Arizona Diamondbacks a steady diet of offspeed pitches. It was a practice in patience for the fiery starter. Garza allowed four runs on five hits, including a homer, over 3 1/3 innings in Milwaukee's 8-5 win. Not his most flattering line. "It's frustrating because I want the results...

Matt Garza rips Jessica Chastain over birth control tweet

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Matt Garza decided to share some of his thoughts about birth control on social media, and he did it by unloading on an actress who had just done the same. Jessica Chastain, who is known for her roles in popular films like “The Martian” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” tweeted on Thursday about birth control no longer needing to be covered by health insurance...

Matt Garza Has Started Getting Grounders

The continued presence of Matt Garza in the Brewers rotation seems to defy explanation. The club needs to pay him this year and next, but they have no playing-time obligation. He clearly has no trade value at this point — his ERA and DRA sit at 5.03 and 5.36, respectively — so why continue to start him when Josh Hader, Brent Suter, and a host of others sit in the minors? Shouldn’t...

Analyzing Garza’s Future with the Brewers

When Matt Garza signed with the Brewers before the 2014 season, the Brewers had to have been hoping that he would be a veteran anchor for a young and developing group of starting pitchers. Both Wily Peralta and Jimmy Nelson were already in the rotation, and Taylor Jungmann would join them the next year. In an ideal world, Garza would be providing solid, approximately league-average...

Will Matt Garza Pitch His Way Out?

Matt Garza pitched like a man on a mission Sunday against the Dodgers, his second time out since returning from the disabled list from the lat strain that sidelined him to open the season. Garza pounded the strike zone, induced eight ground ball outs and needed just 70 pitches to get through six shutout innings. Garza was electric and efficient — basically the opposite of the Garza...

Matt Garza Poised For Bounce-Back Year

The Milwaukee Brewers are amidst a rebuild, and muddled in for the long haul are a cast of a few veterans including 32-year-old starter Matt Garza. Garza has two guaranteed years left on his four-year, $50 million deal that includes a vesting option for the 2018 season. Garza is coming off what is no doubt the worst season of his career, so brutal that he was forced to take the...

Matt Garza blasts Brewers, refuses to move to bullpen

The Milwaukee Brewers recently decided to remove Matt Garza from their starting rotation for the remainder of the season, and the veteran right-hander is furious about it. After Garza allowed four earned runs and seven hits in just 4 2/3 innings of work on Saturday (a no-decision that the Brewers won 8-6), manager Craig Counsell revealed that the start would be the 31-year-old...
