Waino flying back to St. Louis...

Postby free » Wed Feb 23, 2011 10:31 am

according to @joestrauss (cards beat writer) waino returns to STL to have right elbow examined. GM Mo describes prognosis as "not encouraging" and club anticipates an extended absence. :~(

According to rotoworld, Wainwright may need Tommy John surgery... :~( :~( :~(

So, to keep in contention all the Cards will have to do is find another pitcher who throws 230 innings with FIP around 3... No problem.

That's a real shame.

This is a really good example of why any fantasy league that holds its draft this early is nuts.

Potentially huge, and methinks for the Cards, fatal news.

Might this possibly expedite a mid-season Pujols trade? You'd have to think with Waino possibly out for the season any chance they might have had at making a run is now very unlikely.

From a fantasy perspective I was hoping to nab Lester in the fourth but now he and the cluster of pitchers right after Waino get a nice boost up the rankings.

Why do people keep bringing up a Pujols trade when he has explicitly stated that he will not let himself be traded??? :-S :-S :-S

Anywho, this is the gods punishing the team for not figuring out how to make something work with Albert. I'm sure of it. ;-7

This, unfortunately, is probably correct. Carpenter can still serve as an ace as long as he remains healthy. The rest of the staff though, is not enough to remain competitive unless Lohse rebounds, Garcia continues to dominate, and someone steps up as the #5 starter. If Berkman is able to play outfield for 500+ ABs (Huuuuge if) then the Cards may have enough hitting with a Pujols/Holliday/Berkman/Rasmus line-up.

Certainly this makes it tougher and now its the Reds/Brewers division to lose.

Oh, and it looks like Punto's out a couple months.

But Lohse says he's healthy! :~( :~( :~(
