T-J surgery for Carpenter

New, comments

Chris Carpenter will undergo Tommy John surgery, meaning he's out for the rest of the year.

The AP story says he'll miss "part of" 2008, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's out all of 2008, and he probably won't be 100% again until 2009.

Huge blow for the Cards, particularly on the heels of that big contract extension they gave Carpenter earlier this year.
