Garcia’s extension and other notes

The big rumor out of St. Louis right now has nothing to do with potential trades, but rather retaining one of our own. No, not Albert Pujols. It seems that reports are circulating that the Cardinals and 25 year old left handed starter Jaime Garcia are closing on an four year extension. Garcia was drafted in 2005 by the Cardinals and won the fifth starter’s role in spring training in … Continue reading

Roster talk: Boggs up, Lynn down

The word today is that Mitchell Boggs is on his way back to St. Louis while Lance Lynn is headed back to Memphis. Lynn, 24, had moments of brilliance and moments of disappointment in his two major league starts. At times he would cruise through the other team, and then he would struggle. In the end, he was 1-1 with a 5.23 ERA as he threw 10 1/3 innings in … Continue reading
