Per Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals are doubtful that Jaime Garcia will make his next scheduled start after he returned to St. Louis on Wednesday morning to have his left shoulder examined (again) for a possible injury.  This comes after Garcia had one MRI scan on May 30th and missed a previous start despite all results coming back “clean”.

Garcia isn’t the first subject of a dodgy Cardinals injury evaluation.  There’s Mark Mulder, Chris Carpenter, Brad Penny and oh, Chris Carpenter.  And that’s just naming a few.  Maybe the Cardinals brass and team doctors know the grim nature of these injuries from their onset but are afraid to accurate characterize their magnitude to a passionate fan base.  Who the hell knows, really.

One thing is for certain: the information that they share with the public is about as reliable as Scott Spiezio as a designated driver.  As such, we’ve decided to have a little fun with St. Louis press conference where injuries are discussed.

We call it “Pitcher Injury BINGO”.

    You forgot “tipping his pitches…” and “dead arm,” both of which typically result in Tommy John.

  • Devon says:

    “Problem with his mechanics” “Rehab stint” “Season ending” “Career threatening” “Bullpen Session”

  • Andy says:

    Should have made it a “Jump to Conclusions” mat, starting with “visit the team doctor”.

  • Matt Sebek says:

    Good stuff James/Devon. Sounds like we need to create another card, eh?

  • Devon says:
