Garcia pitched so well that his own teammates were stunned into utter silence at the plate. [...]

This is the tale of two players, one in the AL and one in the NL. One is a star, one looks he is on his way to becoming one. Other than playing the same position, they don't have much in common, as their styles, for the most part, are very different. Player A plays [...]

Given that currently the Detroit Tigers are one of the best teams in the American League, at least via record, probably losing two of three to them, including one in extra innings, isn't so bad.  The Cardinals are finding stronger measuring sticks than the Reds and Brewers and they aren't being found completely wanting, which would [...]

For the longest time on Thursday afternoon, it looked like the Cards were stuck in a slightly tilted version of Wednesday night's game.  Trevor Bauer wasn't carrying a no-hitter or gunning for a strikeout record, but when the top of the eighth rolled around, he was carrying a 1-0 lead with double-digit strikeouts.  It was [...]
