Adam Wainwright

*Sigh*  Another rain delay.  Bad for baseball, good for writing. As I reflected further last night and today on the big trades that took place in the NL Central earlier in the week – for those not paying attention, the Brewers got CC Sabathia and the Cubs got Rich Harden – the more I’m convinced [...]

Back from an extended holiday weekend (and having to watch/listen to that Cubs series with a group of friends who are all Cubs fans), I thought it best to leave the weekend be what it was and look ahead to the “second half” of the season with only two series remaining before the All-Star break. [...]

I don’t have a ton of time to write this afternoon, as concert tickets tonight have me on the go (and watching the Cards-Mets score on my phone tonight).  But an interesting piece caught my eye today, and I wanted to share it with you all. Derrick Goold writes over at his Bird Land blog: [...]

If you read this site with any regularity, you know that I’ve fairly staunchly defended Mike Parisi and his performance up until yesterday. He performed well enough as a reliever prior to yesterday’s loss that he had really, in my opinion, earned the right to be with the big-league club in the long relief role. [...]

Wainwright to the DL

by on June 9, 2008 · 0 comments

Adam Wainwright is headed to the 15-day disabled list. The Cards are classifying it currently as a sprained finger, despite this description: Wainwright experienced pop in the middle finger of his right hand during the sixth inning of his start Saturday at Houston. Hopefully a “sprain” in Waino’s finger is not similar to the “discomfort” [...]

Parisi scapegoated?

by on June 9, 2008 · 1 comment

I have to admit, I wasn’t surprised when the Cardinals optioned Mike Parisi to Memphis in favor of Mitchell Boggs on Friday. In hindsight, it’s actually looking like the right move, with Todd Wellemeyer still nursing his elbow, and Boggs scheduled to take his turn in the rotation on Tuesday in Cincinnati. But I also [...]

Play a hard … six??

by on June 2, 2008 · 2 comments

Tonight’s game was hard to stomach.  The Cards produced some early runs with more clutch hitting, a nice 2-out stroke in the first inning by Ryan Ludwick hopefully to get him back on track (he finished two for three, with two RBI).  Luddy again struck with a sac fly in the 3rd. Adam Wainwright was [...]

Adam Wainwright got back on track with a start we all knew he could make.  Kyle Lohse made a start that was very capable and within himself.  Todd Wellemeyer didn’t do too badly himself. Take away a bloop single that Chris Duncan Soriano-ed (ok, and the wild pitch too), and this was a very successful [...]

The Cards enjoyed a day in the sun yesterday in Los Angeles before starting up their weekend series with the Dodgers tonight at Dodger Stadium. The off-day should be very beneficial to the Redbirds, allowing Rick Ankiel one more day to rest that bum shoulder (although the bomb he hit out of Petco the other [...]

Jason Isringhausen was able to get some work in last night after the Cards got some insurance runs, making the game a non-save situation. Izzy threw 15 pitches, 10 for strikes for a line of: J Isringhausen 1.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 15-10 While he still left a couple of balls up that [...]
