The Adam Wainwright Appreciation Thread

SDS

The man is killing it this season, especially for someone who turns 40 on Monday.

2nd most innings pitched this season. 169.2
2.97 ERA
1.03 Whip
1.70 ERA in Aug
2nd highest WAR among starting pitchers in Aug
Only one of three pitchers to throw a Maddux this season (9 innings pitched < 100 pitches)

Still a silver pitcher. Gotta go Gold next update right? I know he does not have the sexy strikeout numbers but the other ratings should be good right?

or

He needs to at least be in the running for a POTM card or they need to release his Signature Series card soon right?

SDS

We need a waino monthly awards card. Has 3 starts with less than 10 hits allowed and very low walk numbers. Would be a good contrary to 100 mph sinkers

I am up to parallel 4 with him in offline play. I honestly would hate to take him out for a starter version but I probably would. I still have Lee Smith for relief on my Cardinals team.

I know the cardinals get a lot of legend cards for positions but I would still like to see a few more starters. We have Gibson and Cy Young, but honestly Young only pitched 2 years with the Cardinals. How about a Chris Carpenter Cy Young Award card. Or a John Tudor 1985 card.

I actually hate the live card series for this reason. Waino is dominating and his attributes aren’t following his season progress. There are way to many guys who are gold and diamond who are playing so poorly and putting up way less stats. A lot of good players having great seasons still stuck in silver and bronze tiers. Very disappointed.

We need an Edmundo Soda appreciation. DeJong is so terrible.

SDS

Yep, Waino deserves so much better. He's been steady as a rock this year.

Possibly a Topps Now card for last nights game? 4 for 6 with two triples, 5 RBIs and 3 runs scored.

SDS

Yes, and a Lars Nootbaar monthly awards for what he has been doing. Did you guys see the 450 ft homer at Kauffman?!?!

SDS

He’s been great, but I believe 2018 hurts him in his ratings and his K/9, although not great, are not bad at all. He has 4 straight years of FIP at 4+ before 2021. If he continues to be that good, maybe he’ll it 80 by season’s end.

SDS

Check out wainos stat line from 2011 to 2015.

Yeah if they do a prime or something else, sure. I’m talking LS though.

Arenado is the only good player in St. Louis. Imagine that trash team without him.

SDS

one of the best curveballs of all time.

You mean the guy hitting .250 ? They are not great this year, that's for sure but Nolan isn't exactly reeling off an MVP season. He's been good at best.

Ok that doesn’t make sense. Goldschimdt has been better than arenado. Arenado, Tyler o Neil, jack flaherty, etc. we are over 500. Give me a break

Nah, that ain't happening.

He's better than anyone else they could have put at third base. He's on pace for 30 plus home runs and 100 RBIs. I'll take that.

Other than the HR's and RBIs though, he has had a rough August.

SDS

Wainwright is going to be the 99 POTM Lightning

SDS

I like to use Waino after deGrom. Two different styles and it's hard for most hitters to adjust.
