Chris Carpenter is having a pretty darn good spring training this season. To date, he’s sporting an ERA of 0.00 in five starts that span 19.0 innings of work. In that time he’s struck out 10 and walked just four.

So I ask you: Does Carpenter, who is coming off of ulnar nerve transposition surgery on November 4th, 2008, and his success this spring worry you that perhaps the Cardinals may be able to give the Cubs a run at the NL Central this year? Do you believe in Carpenter enough to take him in a fantasy draft?
