His new handle, @UncleCharlie50, is a nod to his trademark curveball, which he calls Uncle Charlie. The tall righty gathered over 27,000 followers in his first day...

DraftKings: Wainwright On Time

Adam Wainwright ($10,500) pitches in Chicago today against a Cubs offense that has the third-worst strikeout percentage in baseball. The Cubs also own a wRC+ of 86, which is good for 28th in MLB. For a price under $11K, Wainwright makes the best play given how few legit aces will be taking the mound. Weather could be an issue for a lot of games today, including this one. While a...

Streaking Rays able to capitalize on Adam Wainwright’s rough fifth inning

Adam Wainwright took the hill Tuesday night against the Rays coming off nine days of rest, not counting pitching in the All-Star Game. Evidently, the extra days of rest didn’t plan out too well.
