MATT CARPENTER RUMORS

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 pitchers have a rough night at the All-Star Game

Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter didn't even make it into the All-Star Game Tuesday night. And still, he had the most productive night of the three St. Louis Cardinals at Target Field in Minneapolis. That's how rough the game went for Adam Wainwright and Pat Neshek. Wainwright, the NL starter, and Neshek, returning to his hometown for his first All-Star appearance,...

The St. Louis Cardinals getting closer to the NL Central lead

Matt Carpenter – Photo Credit – Alex Lewis   I have been spending so much time lately worrying about that heavyweight battle going on in the AL West that I have been kind of neglecting the great race going on in the NL Central. The Milwaukee Brewers seemed to be running away with the division earlier in the season, but they have struggled lately and have let teams like the Pittsburgh...

WATCH: Cardinals record bizarre 5-8 putout at 2nd base

I can’t recall ever seeing something like this happen before. In the sixth inning of Thursday’s Cardinals-Pirates game, Edinson Volquez popped up a bunt. Matt Carpenter let the bunt drop in, attempting to turn one out into two. He threw to second in an attempt to get the force on Jordy Mercer, but no one was there. However, center fielder Jon Jay was playing shallow and backing...

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...

St. Louis Cardinals: Why Matt Carpenter has been the biggest surprise

MLB Series of the Weekend: Cardinals Host Nationals, Two Hot Pitching Staffs to Square Off

After getting hot in mid-May, the Cards have been inconsistent in June—as their poor run production has led to a lack of support for strong starting pitching. Offense: St. Louis’ lack of offensive steadiness has been exemplified many times in recent weeks. The Cards’ bats were held silent on June 1 and 2—shut out in back-to-back contests against San Francisco and Kansas City...

What Is The Matt-er with St. Louis Cardinals Offense?

Losses in the first two games of their three-game set with the National League Central division leading Milwaukee Brewers has many St. Louis Cardinals fans wondering if the 2014 Cardinals are ever going to snap out of the collective offensive funk they have been in for the entire month of April. With these two losses to the Brewers the Redbirds now trail the Brew Crew by 6.5 games...

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 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...
