Notes From The Pine: Home Cooking with Adam Wainwright

Adam Wainwright has been having an up and down season. At times he has been great. Other times he has been awful.

Adam is still getting wins. He’s 11-5 to Carlos Martinez’s 6-8. Despite an ERA 2 runs higher (5.08 to 3.36). Thanks in part to leading all pitchers (min, 20 PA) in slugging (.444) and RBIs (10).

Notes From The Pine: Cecil Turns It Around

After an awful start to the season that had many St. Louis Cardinals fans questioning his signing, Brett Cecil seems to be bouncing back.

Cecil hasn’t given up an earned run since June 7th. Allowing him to drop his ERA from 5.66 to 3.58.

Since June 14th, Cecil had held hitters to a .065 batting average and a .094 OBP.

Dare I say Matheny may have actually figured out how to use Cecil? Or is Cecil turning things around on his own? Continue reading “Notes From The Pine: Cecil Turns It Around”
