The Opening Drive

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright

Adam Wainwright joins Carey & Randy to talk about the show and STL being “stuck with him” for another year, a big part of being an MLB player is learning how to fool people, coming back–mainly–to win a World Series, Waino working on his “honey-do” list since the offseason started, how getting on a new healthy diet actually led to him eating more chicken wings (oven-baked of course!), not wanting to make excuses for his poor play and mistakenly ignoring the problem with his knee, taking 1000 reps to get him locked back in after he figured out the problem, it bothering him even more that he was the reason he couldn’t compete, his excitement for Skip to turn the Marlins around, his conversation with Nolan and why he thinks we’ll see him back, Kyle Gibson having to push back his Big League Blast event for the best reason ever–playing in the World Series, his thoughts on the Phillies chance to finish off this playoff run, his prediction for Schwarber to be the WS MVP and a little chirping has been earned by Randy Karraker’s poor fantasy football season in Adam’s BLI league.
