The Cardinals are set to square off once again with the Milwaukee Brewers today, after a thrilling 5-4 comeback win last night. Nick Stavinoha? Really? Anyways, we’ve got Jaime Garcia making his first start today, which all of us at PitchersHitEighth have been anxiously awaiting (Honkin’ for Jaime). Milwaukee is sending ace Yovani Gallardo to the bump, who is fresh off signing a five-year, $30 million-dollar contract extension (can you say steal?).
