Cardinals: Flying high without Adam Wainwright and Matt Holliday

Say you were to tell me at the beginning of Spring Training that by June the St. Louis Cardinals would have played without Matt Holliday, Adam Wainwright, Matt Adams, Lance Lynn, and Jordan Walden for at least two weeks each, yet they would have possession of the best win-loss record in the game. I would have looked at you as if you were one of the most disoriented people in existence...

Pitching staff carrying Cardinals

  Even without ace Adam Wainwright, the St. Louis Cardinals pitching staff has been one of the team's strengths. Entering play Monday, the Cardinals have a 2.71 team ERA. According to, "Last year's team ERA leaders, the Washington Nationals, actually finished with a 3.03 ERA [and] ... the last team to finish the season below 3.00 was the 1989 Dodgers."

So, Wait, Adam Wainwright Isn’t Done In 2015?

For reals? So says The Commish via STLToday: “It’s progressing nicely,” said Wainwright, who...

St. Louis Cardinals: Surviving Adam Wainwright’s injury

As learned earlier in the week, the St. Louis Cardinals lost ace Adam Wainwright to an Achilles injury for the season. The injury occurred as Wainwright was taking an at bat, and awkwardly pivoted on his left leg, rupturing the tendon and ending his season.

What losing Adam Wainwright means for the Cardinals

Earlier in the season I wrote about injury concerns I had for Adam Wainwright but no one could have seen this coming. He left his last start early after seemingly hurting his ankle busting out of the batters box on a bunt play.
