Here is a list of the Cardinals Opening Day starting pitchers since 2012:

  1. Adam Wainwright

That is it. That is the list.

But now, as the metaphorical torch passes on, there may be a new name to add to this list. Per Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, when asked about starting Opening Day Carlos Martínez had this to say:

I respect (Wainwright). But I want (to start the first game).

El Gallo is talented and driven, and he represents the newest wave of Cardinals. With his new contract, he is tied with Dexter Fowler for the team’s longest commitment. Soon, he could very well be the face of the Cardinals.

But Waino is still Waino.

So who starts?
