Ortiz: Cards aren't in 'statement series,' but are back on track

CHICAGO • Adam Wainwright wasn’t exactly trying to deliver a message Tuesday night at Wrigley Field. As far as the Cardinals’ ace is concerned, there’s no need to make a statement. Not now at least.

Cardinals beat the Cubs because they are a better team in 4-3 win

Record doesn't matter. It's all about grit. Well that was awesome.  Also stressful.  And a few other adjectives to denote early death.  This isn't even the playoffs!  BUT WHO CARES THE CARDINALS BEAT THE CUBS!  To sum up the game in simple terms, Adam Wainwright pitched better than Jason Hammel and since both bullpens were perfect, that meant the Cardinals won the game.  It wasn't a pretty win, but who cares?  A win is a win is a win. The Cubs struck first in the 1st after the Cardinals went down real easy with a strikeout and two groundouts to the pitcher on eight total pitches by...

Adam Wainwright is all of our dads (and we love him for it) - A Hunt and Peck

He is the daddiest dad that ever dadded. This past Sunday was Father's Day, so I visited with my father and his father. In the morning we went out to breakfast to celebrate. While at the restaurant we saw several other dads and their families. One father in particular stands out in my mind because he was wearing a shirt with the hand prints of his three children on it and their names. It brought back memories of a t-shirt my father used to wear on Father's Day. Then I realized, maybe hideous shirts are what Father's Day is all about. Father's Day is a day to celebrate our dads, dads who...

Changes in fastball location accompany Adam Wainwright's recent success

For Adam Wainwright, success hinges on his ability to control the corners with his fastball. He appears to have been able to do just that over his last three starts. St. Louis Cardinals Opening Day starter Adam Wainwright has performed more like Vance Worley (If you do not understand this reference, click here. Yes, Worley was an Opening Day starter once.) than a three-time All-Star for the majority of the 2016 season. However, after a scoreless seven-inning outing last night against the Houston Astros, Wainwright has now strung together three straight quality starts and during that span,...

Adam Wainwright makes his case for the Home Run Derby - A Hunt and Peck

Waino adds his name to the growing list of pitchers interested in the contest this year. Pitchers are rarely known for their hitting prowess. While some pitchers are better hitters than most, more often than not the last position player on the bench will be a superior hitter than a pitcher. That does not mean pitchers do not take a great deal of pride in their hitting ability. In fact, a small wave of pitchers have come forward requesting admission (somewhat jokingly, of course) into the Home Run Derby. Adam Wainwright is the most recent pitcher to make his case: Well, if Madbum and...

The Cardinals, After All That, Destroyed The Pirates

Clutch Wainwright double and typical Carpenter things propel Cardinals to four games over .500 for the first time in 2016 The surging (sort of? they came in three games over .500 for the first time in a while) Cardinals played the skidding (definitely) Pirates in the first game of a three-game series at PNC Park tonight. They played at length: 12 innings! And yet the game ended in a Cardinals blowout. Your hero was Adam Wainwright, who was not the starting pitcher, and also did not pitch at all. Intrigue! Read on. The Lineup A bit of a getaway-day feel for game one of...

6/9/2016 Recap: Cardinals Win Squeaker, Take Series from Reds

Wherein Waino finds his lost mojo. Quick one tonight, guys. Tonight the Cardinals battled the Cincinnati Reds to close out the series at the modestly named Great American Ballpark. Adam Wainwright took the mound against one of those young guys from last year's Cueto deal, Brandon Finnegan. The Cards were looking to secure the series win, while the Reds sought to not suck. Wainwright struggled a bit in the first, giving up two runs on a walk and two hits. The Birds answered with a single run in the top of the second. The stage was set. Wainwright found his groove in a major sort of way,...
