CHRIS CARPENTER RUMORS

Lance Lynn as the Next Max Scherzer

Lynn inherited the rotation spot vacated by Carpenter, but did not inherit his role as staff ace, into which Adam Wainwright stepped after missing 2011 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The Cardinals have once […]

Why Chris Carpenter fans should pull for Josh Beckett

Sure, Josh Beckett plays for the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, the new Yankees in terms of player payroll escalation and the St. Louis Cardinals’ bitter opponent in the 2013 National League Championship Series.
