No arguing that Carpenter has been a stud. Would love to have a more traditional leadoff guy with speed and ability to draw walks and have Carp bat #2, but he has been awesome this year
Carpenter is about as traditional as it comes. Top 5 in OBP. Lot of walks. Gets on base. He can do a lot more, so it'd be nice to see him at 2...but nobody gets on base like he does. Jay is getting better.
Only thing Carp lacks is speed but that has been a problem on this team for a long time
