In my opinion he's the Cy Young winner in the National League, his number are out of this world. He's 16-3, 2.16 ERA, 0.966 Whip, only allowed 30 walks in 166 innings pitched only allowed 40 earned runs all season. To me there's no one better in the National League. With that being said, as a Jays fan it's very hard to swallow those numbers because Carpenter was a former Blue Jay and he was never this good. His best season was in 1998 when he went 12-7, not even close to the numbers he's been putting up since joining the Cardinals. The reason why the Jays didn't re-sign him is because he wasn't all that good in the first place and he was coming off Tommy John Surgery so they didn't believe he was able to recover from it. The Cardinals were very smart to sign him because he's been one of the pitchers in the National League since joining them.
