I'm going to tell it like it is and bash me if you want, but deep down this is how people feel I think:
While on a personal level I don't wish anyone any harm, on a team level, am I glad Wainwright is out for the year? Hell yes.
And honestly, I don't feel that bad for St. Louis OR Wainwright. Why? Because even with the injury, he's been blessed with the talent and life that 99.999999% of do not have.
Summing up what he went through, he had a stiff arm, had surgery, and now can't pitch. That's it. He's making $6.688 million this year according to his contract. Not a bad workers comp sum is it? And $15 million over the 4 year contract he's on, with option years in the future I'm sure will be picked up.
The guy is set for life. Lets not make it more than it is. Yeah it sucks for him that he can't do what he loves to do, but I'm not shedding a tear for St. Louis and I'm not going to send him a Get Well card when he's a very rich man and set for life over needing a little surgery.
