Well, I haven't seen anything about this on the site yet. Chris Carpenter may not pitch this year. What do you guys think? I know we have a ton of young arms to cover down, along with Waino and Jaime. Is this the end for our Ace? If so, where do you place him among all the great Cardinals pitchers?
I really hope this isn't the end, but it is getting a little ridiculous with all this complete or near complete seasons this guy has had to sit out due to injury. Personally, I am more upset about Carp going down than when Albert signed with the Angels. Carp is one of my absolute all time favorite players, period.
Interested in hearing what you all have to say about him, the other young guys, our season, etc. Another big loss before the year even kicks off! Go Redbirds in 2013!
"Roger told me that he wanted to prove to the Yankees that he could play on another winner. He had a great Series." -- Hal Woodeshick, Cardinals reliever on the 1967 World Series champion squad, talking about right fielder Roger Maris. Maris hit .385/.433/.583 (10 for 26, 1 double, 1 HR) in the '67 Series, and set a Cardinals franchise record for 7 RBI in a World Series.
