I hate when athletes pull this crap. You create an environment that penalizes guys for not playing through pain and then you rip a guy when he does it and it turns out he's more injured than he thought. You can't have it both ways.
If you want to rip somebody, rip Matheny and the Cards medical staff.
The funny part of it is that it sounds like Garcia was surprised as well, the reaction is as if he knew and tried anyhow. I agree with you completely. It is probably showing some internal personal issue with Garcia since they obviously don't have his back.
