He had a great year last year before he broke down and missed the playoffs which would have really put him on the map IMO. The only question with Carpenter is the same one that he's always had, staying healthy.

Carpenter's good! OMG!!! I'm am so surprised!!!


I'm just glad we locked this guy down for a couple more years.

Forgive me for bragging, but back in March, I drafted: Halladay (4th pick), Dontrelle (13th pick), Carpenter (11th pick) and Livan Hernandez (10th pick). ;-D

I had Carpenter last year and he was awesome till he got hurt. So he was definitly on my radar. Halladay and Mulder were the two biggest SP names left on the board when I took my first pitcher in Round Four. I took Halladay on a hunch, even though I regretted not taking Mulder immediately after the pick (because of St. L being a better team than Tor). Livan is a guy I get almost every year -- good fantasy starter. And Dontrelle was "just a guy" when I grabbed him at 13.

Suffice it to say - i was verrry lucky in this year's draft, pitching-wise.

P.S. I've since traded Livan, and acquired AJ Burnett (in seperate deals).
