This postseason, Chris Carpenter has become an inspirational and informational leader for the Cardinals, unable to actually help them on the field as he recovers from shoulder surgery which may have just become a permanent role.
According to the Boston Globe, the one-time Cy Young winner who did not pitch in 2013 and made only three starts in 2012 will retire at some point during the offseason.
If Carpenter does indeed call it a career, he will finish with a 144-94 record over 15 seasons, with a 3.76 ERA, three All-Star Game appearances and two World Series titles.
His postseason numbers are far more impressive — a 10-4 career record with a 3.00 ERA. He went 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA in four starts in the World Series.
