HBT Daily: Why is Freddy Garcia pitching in an elimination game?

Kay and I try to figure it out. But really, I’m just resigned at this point.

    its a ballsy move by the Braves…why not Medlen on short rest (he didnt last long in game 1 anyway) and Minor for game 5?

      Medlen didn’t last long because he got rocked, so that’s not exactly a great reason to bring him back on short rest. Really, we’re out of options as Craig says in the video. Losing Beachy and Hudson really hurts here.

      The one thing Garcia has going for him is he’s not going to give under pressure because he’s been there before. And by before, I mean “before the rest of our rotation was old enough to pitch in the majors”. You know, I’m kinda starting to feel Craig right now…

    Craig, do you remember the Giants just did this last season vs the Reds? Oh and they were on the road? going in to game 3, and won the series and the World Series?

    I’m sure Freddi Gonzalez is going to start his Hall of Fame induction speech with that question.

      Putting Heyward in the leadoff spot?

    Flip a coin to decide if you get good sweaty Freddy or bad one. It was painful to watch some games he pitched but by the second you should know which one your getting.
