T-J surgery for Carpenter

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.
