Jaime Garcia took St. Louis by storm this summer, and it's easy to see why. Sure, the young southpaw has been the Cards' most impressive rookie pitcher since Rick Ankiel brought his own brand of lefty madness (unfortunate emphasis on "madness") to town, but that isn't the reason. It isn't the big loopy curve, either. No, what we all really love about Jaime is another curve entirely, one he makes sure you can't help but notice: his butt. Of course, one has to wonder if Jaime's heiney would look as good as it does if he weren't tossing shutouts. Does anyone remember Jason Marquis' butt? Nope, we don't either. Until Jaime struggles, though, the eternal question will remain unanswered: Is the butt better because the pitcher is so good, or is the pitcher better because the butt is so good?
