St.  Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright wants Major League Baseball and Fox to retire the erectile dysfunction ads popping up with embarrassing regularity during televised games while "millions of kids are watching."

Yahoo Sports reports the St. Louis star pitcher tweeted near the end of the American League Division Series Game One between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers on Thursday afternoon:


Blogger Mike Oz, however, points out: "One of the reasons professional baseball players can make as many money as they do is because of their club’s massive TV deals and those deals don’t happen without ads like these targeted at men who watch sports." 

Oz writes the hurler has hauled in more than $75 million in his big league career "thanks to the target audiences for those ads," adding, "but all that said, dude has a point."
