Adam Wainwright is no Cliff Lee

The Cardinals are having just a real swell Game One of the World Series in Boston tonight. The Red Sox are already up 3-0, despite the Cardinals' best efforts to play the rightest way possible.

The Cardinals are having just a real swell Game One of the World Series in Boston tonight. The Red Sox are already up 3-0, despite the Cardinals' best efforts to play the rightest way possible.

The second inning started with a pop-up to which St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright reacted quite cooly, much like another pitcher in the World Series four years ago with ice water in his veins.

Only Wainwright's catch was far less cool. Because he did not catch it.
