Adam Wainwright continued his “meh” streak today. Not awful, but not ace-like either. He allowed three runs over six innings and took the loss to the Pirates, 3-1. That gives him a 2-4 record and an ERA of 5.17 ERA in six outings for the month of August.

What’s the problem? Wainwright said after the game that he’s got “dead arm,” which can mean just about anything. But rarely does it amount to an actual injury. It’s just, like, something that happens.
