    Jaime Garcia

    I know he's a Cardinal, but his start was pretty interesting today. He almost faced the minimum batters(27), but he gave up a hit in the 9th with two outs. No, he didn't have a perfect game going, but it would still be pretty cool if he had faced the minimum amount of batters faced. Instead, he faced 28.

    Re: Jaime Garcia

    It was probably the best pitched game of the year by a Cardinal. Only 89 pitches too

    Amazing. I have Cardinals season tickets so I was at the game (hey, had to get my Chris Carpenter bobblehead too!) and I knew Garcia was pitching a great game, but with 2 outs in the 7th, I looked up to see his pitch total and did a double take when I saw 64 pitches. He finished the 7th with 67 pitches and, as was posted, finished the game in 89 pitches.

    Impressive no matter who is on the mound, but by a rookie is even more special.

    He's pretty damn good, but his arm may fall off in September since they don't really have any off days.

    I think Garcia will win ROY. Everyone is lucky that Latos pitched .6 innings too many last year or he would be a lock.

    Latos would still have to finish strong, Garcia isn't that far off from him stat wise

    Re: Jaime Garcia

    Personally, I wouldn't care if all the following things occur.

    1. Jaime Garica is NL Rookie of the Year

    2. Adam Wainwright in the NL Cy Young award winner

    3. Albert Pujols is the NL MVP

    I kind of hate to say number 3, since Votto certainly deserves it, but the big one is coming up.....

    4. The Cardinals finish in second place in the NL Central.:

    Re: Jaime Garcia

    If the reds win the division, Votto is pretty much a lock for MVP

    Yeah. I agree that he's legit.

    If Pujols gets the triple crown he wouldn't. Pujols currently leads in HR and RBI and is only .008 behind Votto, the leader, in average. I agree that whoever wins the division will have an advantage but I think Pujols' name is an advantage in itself as well.

    And I would trade the first three for a playoff spot. Individual awards are great but they're just fluff.

    I actually think his name could be a disadvantage. I remember last football season people were talking about how they were tired of voting Peyton Manning MVP. The same might be true for baseball.

    I hope Pujols wins the triple crown and the Cards miss the playoffs. That would be hilarious.

    I'd be crying and saying this is all someone elses fault. Then, LaRussa would be gone and Albert would leave after '11. If that scenario happened......eek:

    It didn't hurt Bonds when he was getting votes year after year after year.
