  1. Carp in batting gloves? 'Don't be surprised'

    By Anne Rogers @anne__rogers

    ST. LOUIS -- Matt Carpenter has rarely worn batting gloves. He didn’t wear them as a kid, didn’t wear them in high school and has said before that he only remembers a few times he wore them at Texas Christian University when the weather got bad. Since he debuted with the Cardinals in 2011, he’s been a strict no-batting-gloves player.

    Could that change in 2021?

    “Well, I’ve taken a totally different approach to the batting gloves deal,” Carpenter told Cardinals broadcaster Dan McLaughlin during a virtual Winter Warm-Up session. “I’m not saying I’m gonna wear them all the time, but I do have them. And historically, I’ve been kind of a slow starter in the cold weather. Don’t be surprised if you see me taking at-bats this year in some batting gloves. That’s the first time I’ve said that publicly, too.”

  2. He'd better soak them overnight in that special hot sauce...

  4. Why did I think this was going to be COVID related? Was expecting him to be wearing latex gloves. And sanitary socks
     
  5. Latex shortage. But I know a guy who dabbles in importing/exporting.

  8. If he doesn't want to own them...he could rent them, with a lease and option to buy.

  9. Honest question here...Why is Carp's glove decision newsworthy?

  10. Because the teams are needing to provide something for the press, and in this case a team broadcaster to talk about. What that hasn't been discussed already, is "newsworthy"?
