Somebody might give Carp a deal similar to CMart. I assume he can opt out if he doesn’t make the active roster. No real cost to the team.March 14, 2022 at 8:30 pm #180741mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
I wouldn’t sign Carpenter until after the shift is banned.March 15, 2022 at 9:02 am #180760PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
Carpenter is done……..and Carlos is on the brink of it. Merely speculation, but wealth may have been Carlos’ undoing as far as performing at a high level over the course of his career. It happens. He certainly had the physical tools to be a perennial all star……but obviously not the mental.March 16, 2022 at 7:28 am #180810March 16, 2022 at 8:08 am #180818
With Rizzo resigning with the Yankees, Luke Voit may be traded to a team that isn’t able to sign Freddie Freeman.
A downcast Luke Voit, speaking three locker stalls down from Anthony Rizzo’s new spot in the #Yankees clubhouse, realizes his future is likely tied to Freddie Freeman, and hopes to use spring training as a showcase of sorts. Says he’s healthy.

I think CMart is a good candidate to give a shot at a comeback. He still has a live arm.
Carpenter is hopeless though. Something in his swing has made him an easy out. It looks to be with his hands. He seems to put his hands out too far and is always hooking the ball, rather than keeping the hands back, staying inside it and driving the ball.March 16, 2022 at 7:05 pm #180884

Luke Voit to SD Padres– MlbtrMarch 18, 2022 at 2:07 pm #181013
I am skeptical he turned down a big league contract unless the Rangers made a Matt Wieters kind of commitment that he would be added to the roster at the end of camp. No matter what, I will pull for him.
Free-agent infielder Matt Carpenter in agreement with Rangers on minor league deal, source tells @TheAthletic. Carpenter had offers for a major-league deal from at least one other club, but decided to bet on himself for chance to play at home. He lives in Fort Worth, Tx.

Yea I wouldn’t think he would have turned down a guaranteed deal but you never know. While I’ve been hard on him the last three years, he was great for us for a good while. So I too wish him well.March 18, 2022 at 2:44 pm #181016March 20, 2022 at 3:44 pm #181107jj-cf-stlParticipantPaid - Annual

Andrew Miller is retiring.
'It was a heck of a run.' — Andrew Miller, LHP
From the lede: A reliever whose brilliance in October “revolutionized” how teams now finish games is leaving the mound just as his latest, lasting impact on baseball is beginning …

Wish Miller well though I consider his time with us mainly a failure.
