I have to say, I don't think there is an opposing player I dislike more than Chris Carpenter. He is completely unprofessional. Whines about the balls not being rubbed down perfectly to his preference, and this isn't the first time I've seen him try to start a fight over nothing.
I wish the teams ahd let them go at it, as I think Carp does this cause he knows he has that many behind him. I think he would run like a girl if Lee actually came after him.
