August 19: Pirates (66-54) @ Cardinals (65-55)

Jaime Garcia makes his return today, and that return certainly tops the storylines in this rubber game against the Pirates. Because Garcia was able to throw 93 pitches in his last Minor Leaue rehab start, he shouldn’t be all that limited in pitch count today.

This looks like the starting line-up we should have been having for months.

good to see garcia return. Though I like garcia, I firmly see him as never being able to pitch more than six innings as a starter. My earlier suggestion that Kelly remain a starter and Garcia go to the bullpen still remains.
