Shelby Miller

So, there was a blockbuster trade, where the Braves and Cardinals swapped one year of a talented but fragile left-handed right-fielder for a young Southern fireballing right-handed pitching prospect. If you started thinking that the Jason Heyward-Shelby Miller trade is slightly reminscent of the J.D. Drew/Adam Wainwright trade, you’re not wrong. One main difference is […]

How did Adam Wainwright's 2014 performance compare to preseason projections?

A look at how VEB and some projection systems fared in forecasting Adam Wainwright's 2014. We continue our preseason projections reviews today with a look at Adam Wainwright. It was a strange year for the Cardinals' ace. Up until a missed start and treatment for elbow tendinitis in early June, Waino looked ever so much like a Cy Young candidate. From that point on, he managed to pitch effectively, but had to fight through many starts without his best stuff, and it certainly showed up in his peripherals if not his ERA.

The Cardinals and Lynn could come to terms on a contract extension, but both parties...
