Padres reliever gets revenge on Cards' Wainwright for trashing locker
Tuesday was a big day for Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright. Why? He finally joined Twitter! He also had to deal with holes in all his compression shorts thanks to a good buddy on the Padres. Don't feel sorry for Waino, though. He had it coming.

Adam Wainwright had quite the Tuesday in San Diego.
A few weeks after expressing his distaste for social media at the All-Star Game, the Cardinals' ace officially joined the 140-character-or-less world of Twitter. His new handle, @UncleCharlie50, is a nod to his trademark curveball, which he calls Uncle Charlie.
The tall righty gathered more than 27,000 followers in his first day on the social media site, with his first official Tweet getting 1,000 retweets and more than 2,300 favorites.
