Adam Wainwright apologizes to fantasy baseball players for missing final start

At this point, it's pretty clear that humans were put on this Earth for the sole purpose of playing fantasy sports. After all, didn't Albert Camus write, "Basically, at the very bottom of life, which seduces us all, there is only absurdity, and more absurdity. Except for fantasy sports. Those are very important." 

On Monday, Adam Wainwright apologized to fantasy owners everywhere for any problems he may have caused. After starting Broncos' tight end Julius Thomas during his fantasy football playoffs only for Thomas to sit out, Wainwright was shocked.

The hurler asked "who in the world would say they're going to play and not, and it's fantasy football playoff time and effect thousands of people?" 

That's when it hit him -- it's exactly what he did when the Cardinals rested Wainwright on the final day of the year after they had clinched the division.  

So take heart, fantasy owners. At least Wainwright knows your pain.
