Luis Garcia is your AL Rookie of the Year. LOOK AT HIS DAMN NUMBERS. Zero doubt in my mind.

The dude is an absolute tank on the mound with an arsenal of pitches that are downright illegal in 100 countries. The unknown name kid out of A ball throwing an elimination game in the ALCS to a staple in this rotation for the next half-decade. Yes, FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS, the Astros have team control on Luis Garcia. Last night against Cleveland, we again saw Luis do Luis things, 8 punchies over 6 innings, and I don’t think he broke a sweat. It is the shimmy and long Fabio flow that Luis rocks and the wipeout cutter that does it for me. BRICKED UP.

With all the rumors that pop in late July, it is hard for me to imagine Luis Garcia being the odd guy out of the rotation if the Astros go get a front-end arm before the deadline, but it almost seems like that will happen? Luis Garcia deserves to be in the rotation, do not get me wrong, but with him reaching uncharted waters with how many innings he’s thrown, I can see the front office deciding to step in and protect the young arm. You need Luis sharp in October, not July. I wouldn’t like the move, but I wouldn’t hate it either. Becoming the bridge guy and the piggyback guy out of the pen games get very, very fuckin short, and that’s the game plan when the playoffs roll into town. Until Jimmy Click decides on any trades, a game-changing arm will stay in the rotation and continue to show why he is the AL Rookie of the Year.

My Rookie of The Year.
