Fantasy Roundup: Wainwright Stuggles Again

Photo: Wikipedia Adam Wainwright’s fantasy owners must be shaking their heads as he had yet another disappointing start. Since the beginning of August he’s posted a 5.20 ERA and 1.44 WHIP (six starts and 38.1 innings). When an elite pitcher struggles the first thing I look at is the velocity on the fastball; is it relatively the same velocity this year as last year? In Waignwright’s...

Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright dealing with a 'dead arm'

The Pirates beat the Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon (PIT 3, STL 1), and in doing so they touched up St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright for three runs on eight hits and walk in six innings. They didn't knock him around but it wasn't the tall right-hander's best game either. Wainwright now has a 4.68 ERA in his last eight starts after pitching to a 1.83 ERA in his first 19...

‘Dead Arm’ Is Why Adam Waned, Right?

Adam Wainwright went 6 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks as he was out-dueled by Jeff Locke (7 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks). Wainwright being out-dueled seems to be the norm lately. In August, his ERA is 5.17 and he says he's going through a 'dead arm' phase. Ways that a dead arm could help (in no particular order): tricking a zombie while playing dead, making your...

Will Adam Wainwright’s ‘dead arm’ drag the Cardinals out of contention?

If the Cardinals intended to put some space between themselves and the Pirates, they failed to do so by losing two out of three to Pittsburgh, capped off by a 3-1 loss at PNC Park on Wednesday. More troubling for St. Louis, however, could be the status of No. 1 starter Adam Wainwright. The Cards’ ace told Though the Cardinals could get a respite by playing the Cubs in their next...

Adam Wainwright Looking Quite Human Lately

After the 3-1 loss today, in which Adam Wainwright took the loss and saw his record drop to 15-9 and his ERA rise to…holy smokes..2.59, the ace of the St. Louis Cardinals rotation admitted he is reeling from “a dead arm”. This strikes many starting pitchers in August. They reach 160-180 inning and all those [...]

What if Adam Wainwright Just Misses his Catcher?

Adam Wainwright would tell you himself: he’s currently in a funk, and he’s been in a funk for about a month and a half. It’s not like you have to dig very deep to find out why he feels that way. After blanking the Pirates on July 7, Wainwright’s ERA stood at 1.79. Since then, […]

Is Adam Wainwright Okay, or Isn’t He?

Solving Adam Wainwright is tough to do. Ask any batter, they will tell you. First playing for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2006 as a reliever from the bullpen, then moving to a closing spot, and finally starting pitcher, Waino has come into his own. After winning the votes for the Cy Young award, only […] The post Is Adam Wainwright Okay, or Isn’t He? appeared first on The Outside Analysis.

Cardinals get much needed win in 12-inning marathon, move to a half game back in NL Central

After losing a 4-1 lead Friday night against the NL East cellar Phillies with their ace Adam Wainwright on the hill, the Cardinals would turn the page and look to avoid a series loss Saturday night in Philadelphia. They would do that. It took them 12 innings and five hours to get their 70th win of the season. The Cardinals led 1-0 through the first three innings on a solo shot by...

Pipeshots & Problems: Wainwright’s Second Half So Far

Adam Wainwright has started 5 games since ‘pipeshot-gate‘. When he was tabbed the NL starting pitcher in the ’14 All-Star Game, Cardinals fans and some media were staunch in their belief that Wainwright was deserving the nod over LA Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw. They weren’t wrong. It was a close call, but the right one. Further, many expected the 2nd half of the season...

Padres reliever gets revenge on Cards' Wainwright for trashing locker

Adam Wainwright had quite the Tuesday in San Diego. A few weeks after expressing his distaste for social media at the All-Star Game, the Cardinals' ace officially joined the 140-character-or-less world of Twitter. His new handle, @UncleCharlie50, is a nod to his trademark curveball, which he calls Uncle Charlie. The tall righty gathered over 27,000 followers in his first day...
