Jaime Garcia is in the best shape of his life

The Cardinals’ version of the offseason festival/fan interest thing is called the Winter Warm-up.  It went down over the weekend and Christine Coleman of the Aaron Miles‘ Fastball blog was there. She overheard Jaime Garcia dropping BSOML bombs:

“There’s always room to get better. But I am excited to get two full years under my belt. Physically this is the best I’ve ever felt.”

Spring is coming kids. Every BSOML we hear gets us that much closer.

    I believe he means, he’s entering his third season post-TJ surgery, which should be something to look forward to. Not the ordinary garden-variety palaver from a Cody Ross or Ty Wigg about some temporary loss of squishy girth.

    If you have a knife-sharpener in your woodshed, Craig, time to go get it.

    I feel like I am coming in the middle of a conversation, what is the obsession with BSOML stories?

      They are good fodder for commentary and basically the blog exposes/showcases what is part tired cliche’ by reporters working to dredge up stories during the slow part of the baseball calendar year, and part ridiculous and sometimes tongue-in-cheek on the part of ball players, perhaps exaggerating their off-season accomplishments, perhaps not.

      In any case, it’s all in good fun the general clowning these articles help cause, whether the entire article is focused on a player in the best shape of his life, or if it comes about organically through some reporting on a team or player.

      Just sort of the running joke around here, simply put. If anyone else can better explain it or expound on my attempt, feel free.

    I hope Spring is coming. It was 11 degrees when I got to work this morning at 10 am. Some of my co-workers who come in an hour before me said it was 4 degrees when they got here.
