    I generally agree with the article, but I’m not sure I describe this move as “Business as Usual”. This was more of a decision designed to provide stability for the franchise and the rotation for the next couple of years. If things go well, Carpenter’s replacement is going to be Shelby Miller, and he’s making his way through the system nicely right now. Keeping Chris makes the transition easier.

    I also secretly hope that Carpenter stays on as Pitching Coach once Duncan inevitably moves on with Larussa in a couple of years…
