Cardinals value Carpenter's plate discipline more than his TCU coach did

ST. LOUIS -- When Matt Carpenter played at TCU, he showed the same dogged discipline at the plate that he does for the Cardinals. But in college, his excellent eye wasn't always so appreciated. "I didn't need him to lead off. I needed him to hit," TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle said Wednesday. "He would get in 3-1 counts with a runner on first and second and that...

St. Louis Cardinals: Predicting the second half

The first half of Major League Baseball has come and gone and the St. Louis Cardinals are where I believed them to be.  Finishing second, one game back from the Milwaukee Brewers with a 52-44 record. As I predicted, the Cards finished the first half slightly above .500 while still in the hunt for a weakened National League Central Division. By far the Cardinals’ best player from...

Cardinals' Carpenter, a two-time All-Star, has become even better leadoff man

ST. LOUIS -- Ask Matt Carpenter to learn second base and, practically overnight, he becomes an All-Star second baseman. Put him at the top of the batting order and, by the end of the season, he's become as productive as any leadoff hitter in the game. Move him back to third base and, like he never left, he makes another All-Star team. "I like being known as just a baseball...

WATCH: Matt Carpenter makes funny face

We’ve gotten some pretty great baseball GIFs so far in this young season, but this one – featuring Matt Carpenter’s derp face – is definitely the greatest, and it may never be topped for the rest of the year. If that derp face is juicin’ (and it very well may be) it’s still getting into the Hall of Fame on the first ticket. That’s about as good as it gets, ladies and...

Matt Carpenter finds his doppelganger in Sochi

  ST. LOUIS -- If Charles Hamelin ever needs a body double, Matt Carpenter could be his guy. At least Matt Carpenter seems to think so. The St. Louis Cardinals' third baseman posted a photo on Instagram on Tuesday morning of his "twin" -- Hamelin, the Canadian short-track speedskater. The photo was accompanied by the words: "Not sure when I became an Olympic skater...

TCN blog 2013 top story #4: Matt Carpenter’s rise

By the end of the season, he cemented his place in the Cardinals lineup and in fans’ hearts. With the retirement of veteran Chris Carpenter this fall, he can now be “Carp” for years to come. What the now-28-year-old accomplished this past year was nothing short...

Matt Carpenter for MVP: Now it’s Getting Serious

Several months I wrote this article arguing that Matt Carpenter could win the MVP. In the article I pointed out how it wasn’t such a wild idea; how he had the numbers for the sabermetrics community along with being a professional workhorse who switched positions for the betterment of the team, which pleases the more traditionalist crowd. I finished the article with: So all of this...
