Carp to Close

Carp to Close: "The next time a game is on the line, it figures to be Carpenter - if he's available. That's a big if, because he must be handled with care. He wasn't available yesterday, after experiencing difficulty warming up on Friday."

4thebirds... Carp could be used, yes, but it is more likely TLR will be hand-picking the situations, especially with this season winding down and Carpenter having worked his way back for so long.

More likely, Carpenter himself will provide the feedback TLR will need when deciding if and when Carp will get some outs. He would have to feel really good, in my opinion, to get significant innings.

This is subject readers should weigh in on.
