Adam Wainwright's dominant performance in the St. Louis Cardinals' last game against the San Diego Padres earned him his second consecutive 19-win season. 19-win seasons—the measure of any starting pitcher, right?â†µ
Wainwright famously lost his 20th win in 2009 when Kyle McClellan imploded in the seventh inning of his final start of the 2009 regular season. Even after his late-season struggles, Wainwright has two chances to hit 20 this season. If he doesn't do it this year, I'd imagine McClellan will have some early-October flashbacks.
