Ron Cook: Tough loss followed by stellar win for Pirates

The day started with horrible news. Jameson Taillon, one of the two biggest pieces of the Pirates near future, will have Tommy John elbow surgery and miss this season and maybe next. It ended with the Pirates Edinson Volquez, a journeyman to be kind, holding his own, if not outpitching, the St. Louis Cardinals great Adam Wainwright, one of the best starters in baseball. There might not be a more impressive or unlikely Pirates win all season than their 2-1 victory Sunday at PNC Park.

*Cardinals have a rotation full of young starters and no contract extensions

Including Trevor Rosenthal and Carlos Martinez, the Cardinals have six good, young pitchers with under three years of major league service. While there has been a trend in the past few years to try and lock up pre-arbitration pitchers, the Cardinals have yet to sign any of their young pitchers to extensions. The depth the Cardinals have in the rotation is hardly a state secret. After veteran Adam Wainwright, the Cardinals have six young pitchers who have yet to reach arbitration. Currently in the rotation are Michael Wacha, Shelby Miller, Lance Lynn, and Joe Kelly. Carlos Martinez has shown...

Adam Wainwright's approach on Opening Day

7.0 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 4 BB, 9 K: Waino was bueno. Two weeks ago, I discussed Adam Wainwright's curveball usage after quotes surfaced that the ace right-hander felt he "got predictable last year." Though his curveball usage did trend upward in August through October, the majority of the Viva El Birdos community classified Wainwright's curveball usage as "just right." Well, if Monday's Opening Day start against the Reds is any indication of what to expect from Wainwright, his approach will be extremely balanced in 2014. I know I shouldn't place too much emphasis on just one seven-inning start,...

Adam Wainwright's curveball usage in 2013

How predictable was Waino with his curveball last season? Let's take a look at the data... Adam Wainwright is the ace of the Cardinals pitching staff and is widely considered one of the top starting pitchers in the MLB. He is capable of throwing five different pitches (fourseam, sinker, curveball, cutter, changeup) in virtually any count. However, despite having a plethora of pitches in his repertoire, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently wrote an article titled "Wainwright aims to be less predictable" and this is what Waino had to say: "I get predictable. I got...
