I still think with Wainwright down and other issues, the Cards will be sellers at the deadline. Carpenter is in the last year of his deal and with Pujols possibly going too, the Cards could probably use Alonso. For all his faults, Carpenter could front a rotation in a short series. Could the Reds fans get behind a deal or do we hate him too much?
I don't want Carpenter here. Not that I think he'd do it, but it'd be in the back of my mind of him pulling an Eddie Cicotte if he ever wore a Reds uniform in a playoff game. He genuinely hates the Reds, and I don't think he'd ever willingly sign here so I don't think he'd ever be happy about any kind of trade here.
