Adam Wainwright – Fine, upstanding, honest, plays his heart out, gives 110% in every game AND in the dugout, clubhouse leader of veterans and young players, charitable work in the community and in baseball year-round, generous to a fault. Injuries due to playing harder than he even has to.
PEDalta – Cheater, liar, amoral, felon, self-centered, plays for self rather than team, never tries to hit with RISP,  just swings away for HGHHR’s or walks, lazy, casual play, hardly breaks a sweat if at all, when not batting or in field he’s out of the dugout in clubhouse or wherever he goes, doesn’t watch anyone else play.
PEDalta has never been injured or on DL in 13-14 years of MLB.  Body is full of HGH which has anti-aging benefits of denser bones, increased muscle cells, and strengthened ligaments and tendons throughout his body for up to 10 years.
