    Chris Carpenter

    A quote from stltoday.com/

    Some things never change:

    A poorly conditioned mound bothered Chris Carpenter in the first inning. Lingering smoke from fireworks celebrating Ramon Hernandez' home run irritated him in the third. A string of defensive hijinks compounded by back luck led to another pain in the fourth.

    Yeah, it's never his fault.

    We brought out the good mound when Travis Wood would pitch.

    He was barking at Berkman after Phillips' hit. He had to be calmed down by an infielder.

    Re: Chris Carpenter

    I don't get into the name calling, but, like other Reds fans, I don't like Carpenter much.

    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?

    He genuinely has an anger-management issue. He could get away with it when he had dominant stuff and wasn't tested that often, but the guy is going to be a full-blown headcase of Zambrano-level idiocy as his stuff declines and he starts getting hit harder.

    Not a chance. And I bet he'd retire rather than report here. No way do the Reds make that move.

    There is a connection to Jocketty and Castellini. I think the Reds would be interested and I think he'd be a good addition for a play-off bound rotation.

    That said, I really don't like him and as much as I want to see the Reds get an ace, I'd prefer it be somebody else.

    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.

    In one word no.

    It would be like the Edmonds situation, only worse.

    How does one explain smoke inhalation to his son? That's no laughing matter, folks!

    I wouldn't trade Miguel Cairo for Carpenter. I'm serious. I can't stand the guy and want him no where near a Reds uniform.
