Is Michael Wacha the new ace of the St. Louis Cardinals?

When it comes to being an ace, stats are only half the battle. So when I ask the question of Michael Wacha being the new ace of the St. Louis Cardinals, one can’t just open another window, go to Baseball Reference and become a member of the Baseball Card Mafia.

(Insert joke about having more free time since he’s on DL, etc., etc., etc.) In this Month’s issue of GQ Magazine (the one with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover – yes, the same girl that was in Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines Video’), we find a special advertising section (that’s labeled as such) meant to look like content (hence...
