Garcia will try to cool off red-hot Pirates

ST. LOUIS -- The fact that former Cardinals backup catcher Eric Fryer delivered a two-run double to help hand St. Louis another home loss Tuesday night was irrelevant to manager Mike Matheny."Every loss stings," Matheny said. "It doesn't matter who does it to us. They all hurt."The Pittsburgh Pirates' 5-2 win dropped the Cardinals to 18-25 in Busch Stadium and was St. Louis' ninth...

Jaime Garcia Just Pitched the Game of His Life

Jaime Garcia has had Tommy John surgery, rotator-cuff surgery, and thoracic-outlet surgery. Despite those setbacks — or perhaps to spite them — yesterday Garcia pitched the game of his life, throwing harder than he ever has during his career. Garcia’s afternoon was nearly perfect: a wild pitch on a strikeout, a walk that was erased by a double play, and one hard-hit single...

TCN Blog 2015 Top Story #15: Jaime Garcia’s Comeback

If I was Jaime Garcia, I would request a recount. The St. Louis Chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced that the 29-year-old left-hander is sharing the team’s 2015 Bauman Physical Comeback Award with fellow starting pitcher Adam Wainwright*. While Wainwright is indisputably the team’s ace and mounted an inspirational early in-season return from an...

Cardinals: Bring back Jaime Garcia or cut him loose?

Jeff Curry / USA Today Sports One of the juiciest questions heading into the offseason for the St. Louis Cardinals is deciding what to do with embattled, tricky and all together maddening lefthanded starter Jaime Garcia. He’s brilliant when healthy, but that last part is becoming a relative idea that isn’t easy to hold in one spot. Does Jaime’s effectiveness on the mound make...

Jaime Garcia Pitching to Contact with Ace Stuff

Pitching to contact is a much-maligned, sometimes misunderstood philosophy.

The strikeout is a considerably better outcome, but attacking hitters and getting strike one, the philosophy espoused by Dave Duncan, can combine strikeouts, weak contact...

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...

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...
