Love this deal as a Cards fan...And it was one that had to get done...He will be around just long enough to mentor the Cards huge stockpile of high end arms (Miller, Martinez, Lynne, Rosenthal, Kelly etc...)...Cardinals are just absolutly loaded with arms for the bullpen this coming year and for the rotation for years to come.

Core is signed for years to come now with Waino, Holliday, Molina, Craig and all the cost controlled arms plus the best hitting prospect in Taveres and Wong to sure up 2nd base no later then 2014 and Adams to take over 1st this year or next.

Uh, just to let everyone know:

Look, there's no questioning that Wainwright is one of the best pitchers in the NL. He started last year slowly (as expected after TJ surgery), but by July/August, he was rounding into an ace again. Still, I can't believe that this deal is an add-on to his existing deal. He will be 38 at the end of this deal. If he makes it there.
