Wainwright named NL starter
Hernandez named AL starter
lol Wainwright over Kershaw...
Mike Matheny's new nickname is "Hawk Harrelson".
Oh lord. PLEASE. Tell me why this was the wrong choice Mr. Sabermetrics.
Other than wins what has Wainwright done better than Kershaw in?
Im not seeing anything
It isnt always about the best stats. Wainwright has carried a team that has several players underperforming big time. Plus, his numbers are outstanding. Finally, a manager is always going to want to keep hiis own player happy. I have no issue with this at all and would have done the same exact thing. And.. everyone knows how much I love Kershaw.
Kershaw is a better pitcher obviously, but Wainwright is still great. I have no problem with wainwright over Kershaw for the start as Kershaw was hurt and has 5 less starts.
