Stan Musial, Bob Gibson, Ozzie Smith, Jack Buck, and a few others have statues in front of Busch Stadium. I believe the St. Louis Cardinals organization does a fine job, in not just building anyone a statue.
We all believe that the next statue erected would have been Albert Pujols, if he wouldn’t have left for the money in Los Angeles. I am here to tell you who will be the next to be casted in iron and be in front of Busch Stadium.
A few things may still have to happen, but if they do, that next person will be Chris Carpenter.
Everyone in the St. Louis area thought that Chris Carpenter was done for the year, including myself. But can any of us say that it is a surprise that he battled his way back?
No. We have seen it with our own eyes. This guy has battled in the most pressured situations. Just notch this up for another victory for Chris Carpenter, in the face of adversity.
Nobody thought he would be able to come back when the Cardinals first signed him in 20...
