Wainwright continues to be a perplexing figure. His sky-high home run rate made for a frustrating april. Whether that was primarily bad performance or bad luck is a matter of controversy. If you believe his home run rate was mostly luck, he looks like a potential cy young winner. If you focus on his performance to date and ignore the luck factor, he's been one of the worst starters around.

I have faith in Adam, but I admit to a little anxiety about his starts.
