Life post-Wainwright is bleak. In the words of the brilliant Dan Moore:
17. Wainwright Mancrush or Lady-Mancrush Resignedness. "Adam Wainwright is an awesome pitcher, a surprisingly good hitter, and an excellent interview. Please come back soon; my shersey is too young to be a throwback."
Let Adam Wainwright be healed.— MLB Jesus (@MLBJesus) April 26, 2015
