Carpenter promoted to AA

I just came across this- Matt Carpenter, one of the heroes of last year's Super Regional team, has been promoted to Double-A Springfield by the St. Louis Cardinals organization. While his batting average was just over .275 at Single-A Palm Beach, he had walked 26 times (compared to just 14 strike outs) for an on-base percentage of .437. Those of you that have read Moneyball will recognize the importance that many GMs now place on reaching base. Way to go, Matt!
