Carpenter's 20th homer nets him a purple golf cart

Matt Carpenter hit his 20th home run of the season on Sunday and the lead-off blast brought back some conversations during spring training when the third baseman openly talked about how he thought he could reach the big 2-0. Some St. Louis Cardinals teammates didn't believe him, in particular, pitcher Adam Wainwright. Wainwright told Carpenter, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch...

Cardinals' red-hot Carpenter is crushing his way to homer history

The home run Matt Carpenter blasted out of Milwaukee's Miller Park was his 17th of the season, but that's not what made it special. It was his seventh homer in 10 days since returning to the lead-off spot on July 30, meaning the Cardinals' third-baseman is raking home runs at a record rate. According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, it's a rate baseball hasn't seen...

State of the Union, Cardinals Edition. 

 Today is Monday, August tenth, whether you choose to believe it or not. The Cardinals are coming off a weekend series win at Miller Park against the Brewers. St. Louis is sitting pretty atop of the National League Central Division, a stupefying 71-40 record and a 5.0 game leg-up over second place Pittsburgh. Quite frankly, all is well when it comes to the Birds On the Bat. Matt...

WATCH: Cardinals' Carpenter is so hot teammates douse him after HR

Matt Carpenter is definitely back. It wasn't long ago that St. Louis Cardinals fans were lamenting the batting slump of their All-Star third baseman. But like all slumps, this one was made to be broken. Carpenter continued his onslaught Sunday at Milwaukee with a seventh-inning, three-run homer that temporarily lifted St. Louis to a 4-3 lead. It was his seventh home run in the last...

Carpenter’s Hot Streak Silences Craig Comparisons

Because #stlcards is the standard Twitter hashtag for news about the St. Louis Cardinals, I follow it. However, I have a love-hate relationship with it, as any nuggets of wisdom seem to be fewer and farther between. Anyone and everyone who has something to say seems to use the hashtag with a lot of it reactionary to say the least. Most of them don’t seem to bother to read the others...

Cardinals: Matt Carpenter belongs in the leadoff spot

The Cardinals won a wild one Thursday night against the Colorado Rockies, and boy did they need it. The walk-off 9-8 win ended the Cardinals two-game skid and (hopefully) jump started a St. Louis offense that has been in a terrible funk this week. Most importantly, the man right in the thick of the offensive outburst was third baseman Matt Carpenter. Carpenter had arguably his best...

Curtis: How to look at the downswing of Matt Carpenter

Over the opening month of the 2015 season, the St. Louis Cardinals’ third baseman was making an early case for the National League Most Valuable Player Award. Matt Carpenter hit thirteen “two-baggers” in the month of April out of his familiar leadoff spot. An exceptional start to the season led us to believing that this season would slap his very good 2013 in the face. Well...

Matt Carpenter on his July Youth Camp, His Dad and His Future

Perhaps more so than any other St. Louis Cardinals player, Matt Carpenter personifies the self-made, tough, never-give-up image of one of baseball’s most successful franchises.

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

As 2013 began, Matt Carpenter was still known by many St. Louis Cardinals observers as the “other” Carpenter. 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...
