What if he goes to Memphis and throws 91-92 with excellent curve ball command? At the very least that's a helluva bullpen weapon

Then I would seriously consider the opportunity to allow his career to go full-circle.

He has earned the pt if he is right , he does know how to pitch and get batters out , low risk high reward , I wish him the best but he has earned the shot with loyalty at worse .. if I am wrong then I am wrong , I would think majority would agree ...

Are we running a charity or a business here? The idea of Wainwright making another start while the Cards are mathematically in the hunt of a wild card spot absolutely blows my mind.

The scoreboard does not care about your feelings or your sentimentality. If we see him in mop up duty, fine. But he hasn't earned a start. He has been paid handsomely well over the past few years. That he has earned. Another start? Get real.

All the more reason to see how his stuff is on a rehab assignment?

I believe those on the interwebs refer to that as getting pwned.

Wainwright's good people...that's why it is tough to see him not being able to perform like he has in the past. Maybe he's got some magic left in the old elbow.
