Live by LaRussa and die by LaRussa, but hope is not lost.
The emergence of Jaime Garcia was one of the biggest Cardinals stories in 2010. Thirty-five years ago, the Cardinals farm system produced another pair of remarkable lefties. Everybody knows about Steve Carlton, but one year before “Lefty”, another youngster had a historic rookie season. That pitcher was Larry Jaster and this is his story.
Don’t fret, Cardinals fans – the team has plenty of great October memories to re-live.
