Need a Carpenter?

More than likely Chris Carpenter will win the NL Cy Young for the second straight season. Carpenter continued to be lights out in the postseason as he pitched 8 innings leading the Cards to a shutout victory while taking a 2-1 lead in the series. Whatever day Carpenter pitches is a day the Cards usually win, in my book. This was the case last night, the Redbirds were able to score with ducks on the pond and that's all they needed to do behind their ace. Now the series is starting to teeter in the Cards favor a little with Game 4 tonight. Jeff Suppan is coming off an amazing Game 7 performance while Jeremy Bonderman takes the hill for the Tigers. I look for a tight close game tonight, maybe a 3-2 score. I'm waiting for the Tigers offense to breakout like they did against the A's and Yanks. Will tonight be the night? It should be fun.
