Cards’ front office in Chris Carpenter’s future?
Carpenter — a New Hampshire native raised in Raymond and educated at Manchester’s Trinity High School — has said he doesn’t expect to pitch next season but does not want to utter the word “retirement” until a discussion with his family this offseason.
“If he wants to do something with the St. Louis Cardinals, we would certainly welcome that,” Mozeliak said. “When the time comes to discuss that, my door will be open. I look forward to that conversation. He is someone who is so competitive and so passionate about this game that I don’t know if working in the front office is going to appease that. But we’ll see.”
