Baseball will miss Chris Carpenter.
Terrific pitcher. Tough guy. Competitive spirit.
Doubtful the Cubs tear-up if Carp retires though.
He’s a long-time Cubs killer who pitched more games (26) against the Cubs than any other opponent.
He’s (11-6, 3.06) all-time against Chicago.
And (8-3, 3.82) at Wrigley Field.
The 8 wins are the most at any road park in his career.
Baseball should miss Carpenter.
And the Cubs should be glad he’s retiring.
But here’s a respectful tip of the cap to a guy who punished the North Siders for the better part of the last decade.
