1.) What does the loss of Cards’ Wainwright mean for the Cubs?
2.) Cubs vs. Cards ranks where in sports Top 100 rivalries?

1.) The early indications of Wainwright’s injury is ligament damage which could result in season-ending surgery.
If, in fact, this is the case, the Cardinals’ rotation would presumably be Chris Carpenter, Kyle Loshe, Jamie Garcia, Jake Westbrook and Wainwright’s replacement. But there’s no filling the void of a 29-year old stud this late in the offseason. Terrible news for St. Louis, great news for Cubs fans.
