The two faces of Matt Garza.

Matt Garza is a Jekyll and Hyde act; one start he’s dominant, the next he’s miserable.

Last night, Garza showed what he’s capable of, no-hitting the Red Sox through 7.1 innings. The lone hit against the righty came on a weak dribbler by Jacoby Ellsbury. Garza usually pitches well against the Sox, posting a 5-1 career record with a 2.85 ERA against the team.

It's just a matter of time before Matt Garza breaks out...

Garza needs to become more consistent. He usually pitches well against rival East teams: 2.80 against BAL, 2.85 against BOS, 4.11 against NYY, and 1.99 against TOR. However, he holds a 6.87 ERA versus the White Sox, a 6.12 ERA versus Cleveland, a 9.17 ERA versus Seattle, and so on…

I don’t know if I’ve seen a better period of time that showcases Garza’s utter dominance followed by an “alright” start than this graph from 2008. Courtesy of Yahoo!

Garza is Jekyll and Hyde.

His next start will come Tuesday against Baltimore so I think we’ll be looking at another dominant start.
