Although he was out most of last season with an injured Achilles, Adam Wainwright has been an exceptional pitcher during his 10-year career. He's won 121 games, tallied a 2.98 ERA, led the league in innings pitched twice and finished in the top 3 of the Cy Young vote four times. He takes baseball seriously, and as we've learned before, he also takes Fantasy Baseball very seriously -- apologizing to his owners for not making his final start back in 2014.
So, when he heard his stock dropped to the seventh round in a Sirius XM expert Fantasy Draft earlier this week, he decided to call in and plead his case:

You heard it here first: DO NOT let 20 pitchers slip by before taking Adam Wainwright in your fantasy draft (or just do it and don't announce it on a radio show because Waino will come after you).
