St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright (knee) insists that he'll be good to go for his next start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, April 27, after hyperextending his knee Tuesday, April 22. "My ACL, MCL, UCL, all those LCLs, QCLs, all the CLs are good," Wainwright said, listing actual and fictional ligaments that could have been damaged in the twist.
