The Cardinals have decided to replace LHP Jaime García, who threw two innings but had the no-decision in yesterday’s 12-4 win, is being replaced on the roster by RHP Shelby Miller.
MLB.com on postseason roster rules allowing Miller to play:
MLB Postseason rules provide that a Club may request permission from the Commissioner’s Office to replace a player who is unable to play because of an injury. The Commissioner’s Office may approve or disapprove the request based on the specific facts and circumstances. In accordance with the rules, García will be ineligible to return in the National League Championship Series, but would be eligible to return for the World Series if the Cardinals advance.

I am really happy to see my beloved Redbirds win the 2nd NL Wild Card spot this year. Though the Cardinals lost 3-1 to the Redlegs last night, they got in via a 4-3 Dodgers loss to the Giants. Fear the Rally Squirrel!!!!

I sure hope to see a #12in12 season. Let’s get that Rally Squirrel out there!
10 years ago today, famous St. Louis Cardinals announcer for KMOX Jack Buck died due to a combination of illnesses.
We will remember JFB for his highlights, including the call of Kirk Gibson’s game-winning pinch hit home run in Game 1 of 1988 World Series.
This highlight features both Jack and his son Joe Buck with two different calls.
Jack Buck’s post-9/11 speech:
RIP Jack Buck 10 years later.
Coming up later this week: Remembering Darryl Kile 10 Years Later.
Welcome to Justin’s MLB Blog. This is where I’ll be discussing baseball, mostly about the St. Louis Cardinals.
