So on his off-day on Monday of this week, Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright took a detour on his way to New York and stopped off at the ESPN campus to get showered with love and plastered all over SportsCenter.

The Cardinals beat the Mets 2-1 Thursday afternoon at Citi Field in New York. Trevor Rosenthal came on in the eighth inning in relief of Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright who threw seven shutout innings.
The pressure of standing and watching a one-run ball game was apparently too much for this Mets fan in the background. For absolutely no reason at all, aside from TMB (too much...
