Phils exercise patience in beating Wainwright, Cards

It wasn’t the prettiest game for the Phillies, but in another sense it would be tough to draw up a winning game as textbook as Friday’s 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park. Facing Adam Wainwright, the winningest pitcher in the league for the past two seasons, the Phillies rallied from a three-run deficit with a gritty four-spot in the third inning...

Michael Wacha Faces Interesting End to 2014

The St. Louis Cardinals entered the 2014 season with Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha poised to lead the rotation forward.  Wainwright, the established veteran, was ready to resume the role of staff ace, a role he had been groomed for over his career.  Wacha looked to build on his success in the 2013 postseason and prove that he would be the future ace of the team. The...

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...

DraftKings – The Curious Case of Adam Wainwright

Sorry my Razzball peeps but everybody's favorite bearded genius J-FOH is hanging with Mickey Mouse today. So while J-FOH does his initiation with these guys, I'm stepping in to pinch hit. Think of me as a super sexy Matt Stairs, only instead of late innings hits I'm dropping Daily Baseball science on y'all! Speaking of daily fantasy science, check out Rudy's Franken...

Brewers rough up Wainwright, rival Cardinals

In five of Adam Wainwright's six seasons as a starting pitcher in the big leagues, the star right-hander has allowed five or fewer earned runs against the Milwaukee Brewers over the course of the entire year.

Wainwright gets roughed up as Cards fall to Brewers in series opener

ST. LOUIS -- If their under-performing offense hasn't given the Cardinals enough reason for concern, they just might have another one after Friday night. Their ace, Adam Wainwright, was roughed up for the second time in his past three starts. He gave up nine hits and seven earned runs and lasted only 5 1/3 innings in a 7-4 loss to the first-place Brewers at Busch Stadium. In...

Is Adam Wainwright a future Hall of Famer?

It seems to be common knowledge that some players across Major League Baseball are an easy choice as first ballot Hall of Famers, people like Derek Jeter, Ichiro, Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera. Then there are others who may have to wait but eventually get in, such as Adrian Beltre. Some of them are still young, like Mike Trout, Clayton Kershaw and Craig Kimbrel, but are all...

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...

Wainwright hopes to bounce back with better outing in Wrigley finale

If Adam Wainwright is to bounce back from one of his worst outings of the season, he must avoid having another one at Wrigley Field. Trying again to become the majors' first 13-game winner, the St. Louis Cardinals right-hander looks to avoid losing consecutive starts for the first time this season in Sunday's decisive series finale against the Chicago Cubs. Wainwright (12...

Cardinals can't fight past a rare off night from Wainwright

ST. LOUIS -- When Adam Wainwright faced the Tampa Bay Rays last month, he shut them out for seven innings with his right elbow hurting so badly he would miss his next start. On Tuesday night, rested and ready, Wainwright faced the Rays and gave up six runs and didn't last five innings. Go figure. "Yeah, last time I felt like the worst I ever felt and got seven shutout innings...
