Puts on a show in front of a sea of red T-shirts (24,000 paying fans) on a perfect day in St. Louis. A hit, a walk, seven strikeouts, no walks, no runs in eight innings. 

But the perfect day is marred by the fact that the Birds haven't scored either and the Cubs win in ten.

He has been excellent other than his first start and pitched well last season. Taking a flier on him, but only in one league.

The last part of Peter's entry for the Rotoman special has to be quoted in full for the benefit of our members who don't subscribe (some of whom pay with great comments).

... The fact of the matter is that Wainwright's run of decent but not great FIPs is clearly a reflection of his effective major league pitching. Since 2016 150 pitchers have thrown more than 350 innings and Wainwright ranks 65th among them in FIPS and 95th among them in ERA. That's a major league pitcher, a borderline fantasy starter in deep leagues, but not the great one Wainwright was in his younger days. And 2020 was not a return to form.

Good player to have in the back end of the rotation. I'm sure he's being well compensated and I'm sure the Cardinals got a discount.

Wainwright agreed to a contract with the Cardinals on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Wainwright has spent his entire 15-year career in St. Louis and will return on what is believed to be a one-year deal. He is coming off of a strong 2020 campaign, when he maintained a 3.15 ERA across 65.2 frames. Wainwright should be penciled into the back end of the Cardinals' rotation heading into his age-39 season.
