It worked out for him. If not for the offense and bullpen, this thread would have been loaded with criticism for the move. Rightfully so, in my opinion, and I’d probably be one of the critics. But it worked out, and if the extra day for Carp shows results in the win column, it’ll payoff for any run the Cards might make.
