I was hoping one of them was going to talk about Wong, and to my surprise, they did. I was surprised because there was so much focus on future star...

Cardinals Get Big Return From Jaime Garcia

It’s not the most comforting way to look at a loss, but besides the bat silencing from Mets starter Jacob deGrom or the latest bullpen collapse, the return of Jaime Garcia was a huge positive takeaway from today’s game.
