Hasn't the poor man suffered enough already?
There was a time when baseball came very easily to the handsome shortstop with five vowels in his name and two batting titles before his 28th birthday. But for anyone who has been paying attention over the last three seasons, that crumpled mass lying 10 feet up the first-base line at Busch Stadium had a familiar look to it.
When something can go wrong for Garciaparra these days, it somehow manages to go even worse. He has the sadiM touch - that's Midas in reverse.
