Ouch....not a good way to start off the year if you are a Cardinals fan.


And it's ok to admit it Cubs' fan...a little part of you inside is celebrating this....

Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright could be out for the season.

A 20-game winner and Cy Young award runner-up for St. Louis last season, Wainwright is being sent from spring training in Jupiter, Fla., back to St. Louis for tests on his right elbow, which he injured during Monday's bullpen session.

Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak said “things do not look encouraging” for the right-handed pitcher but stopped short of saying Wainwright would need Tommy John surgery.

“I don't want to speculate, but obviously ligament damage, that's usually what it results in,” he said.

Yes! I'm a Reds fan and this is great news. I feel bad for Wainright though. I don't wish injury on anyone, but that makes the Cards that much easier to beat this year.

No long term deal for Albert, that Tommy Jone getting Wainwright - I'm wondering how the chicken littles around here are going to take this.

Sadly they'll still likely finish ahead of my Cubs.

As will the Reds.

At least there will always be the Pirates. Even tho they friggin' owned the Cubs last year...whatevs. Tis a long strange season. Never know what might happen, and no, I'm never happy for any injury. Even to a cardinal.

I play fantasy baseball.
