    "Look at what the Cardinals did last year [after losing Carpenter for much of the season]. But we learned this much today: Carpenter isn't expected to pitch for the Cardinals in 2013. On Tuesday, the Cardinals announced that, indeed, Carpenter had told them he couldn't pitch. Carpenter was sidelined for much of the 2012 season with shoulder injuries.

In general, Carpenter's competitors commended his 15-year career and characterized the Cardinals as a team still in position to seriously contend for a division title. "I'm sure it killed him just to say he couldn't pitch," said Brewers assistant GM Gord Ash, who was Blue Jays GM when Carpenter broke into the big leagues in 1997.
