Redbird Randoms ... Wainwright OK on breaking pitches

Adam Wainwright threw 55 pitches in a bullpen session at Shea Stadium in New York today.

He said he threw breaking pitches, feeling tentative at first, but then admitting that everything was okay.

The next bullpen session is planned for Tuesday. The Cards will be in Atlanta at that time.

Wainwright seemed more upbeat in an FSN Midwest interview regarding today's workout.
Finding out whether he would be able to throw a breaking ball had to have been weighing heavily on his mind.

We now speculate that Wainwright will be overly anxious to get back into the rotation, knowing what kind of competitor he is.
