    Carpenter to have TJ surgery

    That's gotta hurt...

    Chris Carpenter will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the season.

    How's that five-year extension looking now? The Cardinals gave Carpenter a $63.5 million deal last winter, even though he was already under control through 2008. Maybe he'll come back and be something worth close to that. However, as many arm problems as he's had over the course of his career, there's just no guarantee that he'll ever again be a dominant starter. Tommy John surgery will put him out through at least the All-Star break. It's probably about 60-40 that he'll come back and make a positive impact over the final two months of 2008.

    I wonder if LaRussa is more likely to make a move this off-season since he'll be without his #1 starter...again.

    The writers are continually getting this wrong.

    It was not a 5 year extesion for $63.5M .

    It was a 3 year extension for about $50M.

    He was signed for 2007 and 2008. They added 3 years.
