ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has joined twitter!

It's a surprise move because just a few weeks ago Twitter exploded with criticism after he commented about giving Derek Jeter pitches to hit during the All-Star game. He clarified his comments during an interview with Fox's Erin Andrews, and when she said, "Don't you love social media?" he responded, "No. I don't love social media."

Waino's handle is @UncleCharlie50. Just a few hours after setting up his account he already has several thousand followers.

So far, he hasn't sent a single tweet.
