Waino even takes the stage himself. Per MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosh, Adam Wainwright raised an estimated $40,000 dollars for his charity, Big League Impact. After saying he was willing to do almost anything for donations, the veteran righty took the stage himself.

Wainwright to the rescue after Warm-Up is shortened

With the exception of the end of last season, Cardinals righthander Adam Wainwright hasn’t been a reliever since he closed out the 2006 World Series final-game win over Detroit. But he has earned something of a save this weekend.

Weighing Mike Leake’s results vs. peripherals

Weighing Mike Leake’s results vs. peripherals

In 2016, Mike Leake was let down by his defense. Should we blame Leake or the defense? Quick, think to yourself: Who do you predict will be the most effective St. Louis Cardinals starter in 2017? Carlos Martinez seems like a safe pick: he was almost unanimously considered the Cardinals' ace in 2016 and arguably was the team's most effective pitcher in 2015, his first full season as an MLB starter, as well. Adam Wainwright had, by any measure, a down season in 2016, but he did somewhat dramatically under-perform his peripheral statistics while coming back from a de facto full season missed...

Adam Wainwright needs to simplify approach in 2017

Consistency with his fastballs should be Adam Wainwright’s primary focus entering 2017. There is no denying that 2016 was a down year for Adam Wainwright. While he finished the season with an above-average fWAR of 2.9 (2nd on the Cardinals, 17th in the NL), his 4.62 ERA was more than a half run higher than his previous career high (3.94 in 2012 — in which he was only one year removed from Tommy John surgery). Wainwright recorded 18 quality starts out of 33 total, or 54.54% — a career low percentage. To put this into context, here are Waino’s quality start percentages over his last...
