Carpenter Throws again, Berkman talks Retirement
One veteran Cardinal player is eyeing a comeback, while another is thinking retirement. Chris Carpenter threw a simulated game this afternoon at Busch Stadium in his comeback attempt after having nerve surgery earlier this season. Carpenter threw 51 pitches to Cardinals hitters and felt fine after the session.
Lance Berkman is back with the Cardinals after recovering from his chronic knee problems, but admits, this might be the final month of his big league career.
