Are you basing that purely on feeling, rather than fact? Have you done the research on pitchers coming back from bone spur surgery not faring well?

Good article.

Jul 14 The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Joe Strauss reports St. Louis Cardinals SP Chris Carpenter (elbow) suffered stiffness and swelling of his right elbow following Sunday's three-inning start for Class A Palm Beach. When Carpenter went down in April, the team said he was suffering from arthritis in the elbow as well as bone spurs. Hopeful that the spurs were his main problem, the club now has concerns about the arthritic condition. He will be re-evaluated in a few days, and his return is unknown.

Jul 13 Carpenter has suffered a setback in his recovery from elbow surgery, the St. Louis Dispatch reports.
Recommendation: Carpenter’s next start is "undetermined" after he experienced renewed stiffness and swelling of his right elbow after Sunday’s three inning start for High-A Palm Beach. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said Friday that Carpenter suffered "a bit of a setback" after a 39-pitch appearance and could not provide a timetable for when his ace might resume his throwing program. The club now has increased concerns about the arthritic condition. Carpenter will likely be examined in the next several days by team orthopedist Dr. George Paletta.

Yeah, it's too bad, and unforeseen by anyone outside of the club. But, I wouldn't freak out just yet. It's arthritis, not damage.

Nevermind! At least those in keeper leagues have time to ponder his future on their teams.

Carpenter Out for Season
Joe Strauss, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Cardinals SP Chris Carpenter (elbow) will undergo additional elbow surgery that will end his season and could cause him to miss a significant amount of the 2008 season. Details of the surgery have not been released, but according to sources involved, the surgery will replace the ligament in his elbow.

Big ouch. Tommy John surgery:

Chris Carpenter will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the season.

How's that five-year extension looking now? The Cardinals gave Carpenter a $63.5 million deal last winter, even though he was already under control through 2008. Maybe he'll come back and be something worth close to that. However, as many arm problems as he's had over the course of his career, there's just no guarantee that he'll ever again be a dominant starter. Tommy John surgery will put him out through at least the All-Star break. It's probably about 60-40 that he'll come back and make a positive impact over the final two months of 2008.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
