2015 VEB Community projections: Adam Wainwright

How does the VEB Community's collective forecast for Adam Wainwright compare to the ZiPS, PECOTA, Steamer, and Oliver projection systems? The results are in for the leadoff player in the 2015 VEB Community projections lineup. The VEB Community's forecasted projects for Adam Wainwright were interesting. Unlike last year, VEB is not the most optimistic in respect to Wainwright's forthcoming season. In fact, the VEB Community's projected stats were rather measured. The following graphic compares the VEB Community projections ("VEB," in red) to the following spreadsheet projection...

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Miami Marlins - Spring Training - Game Thread - March 13, 2015

Another battle in the War for Jupiter will be fought today. At Roger Dean Stadium, the St. Louis Cardinals face off against the Miami Marlins. The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Midwest and MLB Network (delayed). So you can watch it live and comment or follow on MLB.com Gameday and comment. Neither Lance Lynn (hip flexor strain) nor Adam Wainwright (abdominal muscle strain) has yet been cleared for game action. So prospect Zack Petrick (who Eric profiled as the No. 25 Future Redbirds prospect) will make the start today in Lynn's stead.

Waino Was Bueno

Adam Wainwright needed surgery but the Cardinals needed Adam Wainwright, so he threw a baseball about a hundred times as hard and as effectively as he could even though he couldn't open household condiment jars. The setting is October 2014. The Cardinals were down three games to two to the San Francisco Giants. Adam Wainwright was slated to pitch Game 5 but his status was in question due to health concerns. Madison Bumgarner was pitching for the Giants. Wainwright had just surrendered nine runs in nine innings in his previous two starts, so Cardinals fans were not exactly beaming with...

Call for 2015 VEB Community projection submissions: Lance Lynn

It's spring, which means it's VEB Community projection submissions. The home page for the 2015 VEB Community projections is here. Today's post will mark the fifth St. Louis Cardinals player we've requested submissions for so far this spring. The previous four are (1) Adam Wainwright, (2) Matt Adams, (3) Michael Wacha, and (4) Matt Holliday. If you haven't yet, please submit your 2015 statistical predictions for them. Today we move back to the pitching side of things. If Wacha is a wild card for the rotation, Lance Lynn probably represents the surest bet just due to his injury history;...

Call for 2015 St. Louis Cardinals VEB Community projection submissions: Matt Holliday

So far in the our call for 2015 VEB Community projections, we've requested them for the following St. Louis Cardinals: Adam Wainwright Matt Adams Michael Wacha If you haven't yet submitted your stat predictions for those three, you can do so here. The more, the merrier—so spread the word.

Adam Wainwright's workload a concern in 2015

The recent abdominal issue for Adam Wainwright has continued discussions about his workload and the likelihood he will be able to pitch up to his normal standards after offseason surgery. We started our community projections today. First up is Adam Wainwright. Go here to make a projection for the 2015 season. Concern for Adam Wainwright is not going away anytime soon. His strikeout rate decreased in 2014. He is 33 years old. He admitted he was not completely healthy during the season. He had surgery in the offseason that was characterized as minor, but was to the same part of the body he...
