Hold your breath everyone... if Carpenter can stay healthy and pitch effectively, that's a huge boost to this team.
And then Wainright should be right around the corner...and if they make him the closer...I think we're in good shape.
Lots of ifs though...

La Russa: Carpenter starts Wednesday
By Derrick Goold

NEW YORK — Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter, after just two rehab starts, will return to the major-league rotation Wednesday in Atlanta, a little more than a year after Tommy John surgery ended his 2007 season, manager Tony La Russa confirmed Saturday afternoon.

Carpenter will be making his first major-league start since opening night 2007.

“Best news we’ve had,” La Russa said. “Give me something else that comes close to it.”

La Russa said the assignment hinges on how Carpenter feels after throwing a bullpen Sunday in St. Louis. If the righthander comes out of the side session well, he’ll join the team in Atlanta and start the third game of the four-game series against the Braves. To make room on the roster for Carpenter, La Russa said the Cardinals will likely option Mitchell Boggs to Triple-A.

Boggs remains with the team in New York after his start at Shea Stadium on Friday. The righthander could be used in relief on Monday or Tuesday if the Cardinals have the need.

Carpenter threw 78 pitches for Triple-A Memphis on Friday night, finishing 5 2/3 innings and striking out five batters against one walk. After the start, the second of his rehab assignment, Carpenter said he was “definitely pleased” with how he felt and his performance.

La Russa said he spoke with Carpenter on Saturday and that the righthander expressed comfort with how his elbow felt the day after his longest outing.


They also mentioned this morning on 1380, that Carpenter would start on Wednesday.

Update from today

EXTRA BASES

The Cardinals cemented their plans to have Chris Carpenter start Wednesday after the righthander completed a workout in St. Louis on Sunday without incident. He will join the team in Atlanta today to make his first major-league appearance since opening day 2007. ... The Cardinals' Olympian, shortstop Brian Barden, will report to Team USA today, leaving an opening in the Class AAA infield. The Cardinals plan to promote Tyler Greene, the 30th overall pick from the 2005 draft, to take the spot. Greene has regained traction as a prospect with his bat. He is on a Class AA franchise-record 18-game hitting streak.

Looking forward to Carp's start!

Hopefully we didn't rush him.

Yeah, the Cardinals are setting themselves up for major criticism for not giving him another rehab start or two.
He's only pitched like 10 innings of rehab. Doesn't seem like much.
I'll defer to the Cardinals though. They've been closely monitoring him. They've waited a year...if they felt they needed to wait another 10 days, so he could get another couple rehab starts, they'd wait the 10 days.

He's ready to go....I hope.

Here is to hoping that he breezes throguh 7 and hits pitch 82 to end his night.
The Braves lineup save for Kotsay(if that) doesnt scare me.
Carp is facing a better triple A team than what he faced the other night.
I say he goes 6, throws the 85 pitches and his line will be....
6 ip 7 hits 1 er/r 2bb's and 5k's
gets 2 double plays to help out and Yadi throws out a runner.

Cards win 7-3 and gain either a game in central/wild card
