Question on Adam Wainwright

Postby derekbaldwin » Fri Apr 06, 2007 10:34 pm

I didn't realize he would be starting for the Cards this year but I'm just wondering what you guys think of him.

I've asked a bunch of Card fans on their forums and they love him. I just added him, can you guys give me any objective info on this guy?

He pitched great for me tonight, for sure.

Check out his ST stats. Best pitcher of the spring.

Love him. Kept him in my 18 team league where we only get 5 keepers. Was highly thought of while a member of the Braves system.

Not as talented as Reyes, but still a very good player. His prospect status was derailed by injury, but it seems as though he is now back on track. If he can stay healthy he should be a good starter.

He looked great. I was very impressed. I would've been interested to see who faired better if Papelbon had been starting.

Anyway yeah great late round pickup for anyone who got Wainwright. ;-D
