Yeah, I'd definitely want a doctor's opinion but I also remember what the docs told the Reds about Paul Wilson before they gave him millions after last season.Originally Posted by M2
Right now I absolutely believe that St. Louis would like to pass of Wainwright as a healthy arm, but I view him as an extreme risk at this point. He was easily the #1 guy the Cards received for J.D. Drew but at this point I'd actually be more comfortable if he'd had surgery to repair the damage. That being said, I think we were somewhat fooled by the idea that everyone comes back successfully from TJ surgery when the Reds dealt for Claussen.
If the Cards don't want to give up Reyes and another high-level guy for either Pena or Kearns, I just move on to a team that has talent to burn with fewer warts.
