Yeah, I'm not a big fan of some of the stupid stuff he says and does (and it seems like it's been muchso more this year than in the past), but in the end he's successful and as a Cards fan I'm willing to look past it moreso than I would if he was just an average player. I'd definitely he rather just shut up and pitch, though. I'm sure most teams have a guy like that. I'm sure just as many Cards fans dislike Phillips as Reds fans dislike Carp.

Chris is a competitor and is very intense when he's pitching. He wants to win, plain and simple.

I love his attitude as a Cardinals' fan but I would probably hate it if I were a fan of another team. Chris has more passion then probably 95% of the players in the MLB. Every game is game 7 of the world series to him

Well, I really don't blame him for being angry. I love Ryan and what he brings to the field but he is the kind of guy who, how can I say this, is immature for his age. His antics can get annoying, though they can make they clubhouse lively. From what I understand, Brendan Ryan was taking BP within the clubhouse while some of the guys were on the field getting ready to start play. The whole glove thing just added to what was going on. I really think it was an instance where the Cards were getting ready to play an important series against the Reds and a players head wasn't in the game. Since Carpenter is a leader in the club house, I see no problem with him getting angry at the guy. After the game, Carpenter said everything was forgiven. I remind you that Carpenter is the one who basically went to LaRussa last year asking Ryan to be the SS every time he pitches. He likes the guy.

By no means am I comparing Carpenter to Bob Gibson but Gibson was the same kind of player. Heck, he told his catcher once to get back behind the plate when the said catcher started to walk to the mound. Gibson gets labeled as a fierce competitor but people take umbridge with this incident.

Also, as a Cards fan, I appreciate Carp being angry a guy for not doing his job correctly when the game is essentially a blowout. Most guys would let it be but he is a perfectionist.

When did 4 run wins become blowouts?

MikeThierry
08-10-2010, 02:45 AM
At the time he allowed the second run, which he got mad at Ryan for, it was a blowout. At least the way Carp was pitching it felt like the Reds were lifeless at the plate. The final score still left little to be desired in the "close game" category however.

Wow...pretty embarrassing. Couldn't he have waited until the game was over and talked to him alone? Stepping a foot out of the dugout isn't private. I don't care if the guy is a "competitor". He's not Ryan's supervisor.

Actually, on the field, Carpenter is Ryan's supervisor. Carpenter is the #1 leader on the field outside of Pujols and what ever he says goes. Reading the story more, I back Carpenter on this one. Ryan was late getting on the field and picked out the wrong glove. He can't be doing that in a playoff type game. It would be one thing if it was game 10 in the season but this was an important game. The focus needs to be there.

couch_manager
08-10-2010, 04:37 AM
No, Carpenter is a pitcher and a teammate. If this or something similar to it would have happened before with Ryan, I could understand it. But it's not smart to alienate a player who you rely on to field ground balls.

MikeThierry
08-10-2010, 04:57 AM
Actually, Ryan has been flaky all year and has generally been an immature player in his career. The Cards have put up with his antics because he is one of the best defensive SS in the game (even in a down year he is in the top 5 in Ultimate Zone Rating). However, this kind of stuff is nothing new with Ryan and it gets annoying at times watching him all year. Yes Carpenter is a pitcher and teammate but I have no problem with him calling out a player that doesn't have his head in a game and important series. I like Ryan but he is a head case at times.

Dude, no offense but you calling Ryan immature for his age, and back up Carpenter sounds ridiculous.

How do you know he is immature in the Club House?

Also, Carpenter was way out of line doing what he did... Almost Carlos Zambrano like... But not as big a scene...

Carpenter is just upset about his ERA.

He had an issue with his glove, should he had just played with a glove with a broken string? Would that make Carpenter feel better when Ryan boots a ball because of the glove?

Carpenter:

"It was just a little miscommunication on my part or misunderstanding on my part," he said. "We're fine. Everything is good. We're good."

Cut to:


Ryan, normally among the most gregarious and quotable Cardinals, left the clubhouse without talking to reporters

Sounds as if everything is good to me. LOL.

The second run scored on a ground ball right where the shortstop normally plays. Ryan was playing more up the middle at the time. And since Crying Chris can do no wrong it had to be someone else's fault.

Actually, the issue was Brendan bringing out the actual wrong glove.

Hondo, the reason why I know what I know is because Ryan has said even in interviews that "he needs to take things more seriously" and just watching this team all the time its well known that Ryan is more knuckleheadish than most of his teammates.

I had read that his glove was broke, had to use another players glove while that player fixed his, then switched back up once his was fixed? This was from St Loius site i think, though I cant find the link now, so not sure of that part.

He was down in the batting cages during the top of the first and was late getting out when the inning went quicker than he expected. He was in a hurry and grabbed the wrong glove on his way out to the field.
