MATT CARPENTER RUMORS

Finding a spot for Matt Carpenter in the St. Louis Cardinals lineup

During the 2014 season, it became apparent that the favorite activity of Cardinals fans was to scrutinize the lineups that manager Mike Matheny would put out on a daily basis. It seemed like every gameday there would be tons of people taking to twitter to offer criticism of the manager’s choice for that day, while some would offer their ideal lineup. For the most part, I decided...

St Louis Cardinals: trip to LA a success

Despite being shut down by Zack Greinke and losing Saturday night to a late Matt Kemp home run, the Cardinals left Los Angeles with the NLDS tied, having beat the best pitcher on the planet. There are plenty of positives and negatives to be taken from the first 2 games of the NLDS, but with the series the only one to tie at 1-1, the 2 most evenly matched teams of the postseason may...

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 pitch would be right...

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 player...

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.... #twins #mylook...

Should St. Louis Cardinals move Matt Carpenter out of leadoff spot?

St. Louis Cardinals infielder Matt Carpenter became another unexpected St. Louis baseball sensation in 2013 when he took to a new position in the field and the lineup and finished fourth in the National League Most Valuable Player voting, but he might have to go through just as many changes in 2014. Carpenter became the starting second baseman for the Cardinals after Skip Schumaker...

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...
