Cards' Carpenter Eager to start Spring Training
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter is eager for the winter to wind up and spring training to start.

Carpenter says it's been a short offseason since St. Louis won the championship. He says he hasn't watched any of the World Series on tape, including his victory in Game 7 over Texas.

Carpenter signed autographs Saturday at the team's annual fan gathering in St. Louis.

The Cardinals begin spring training next month in Jupiter, Fla., with a reshaped team. Slugger Albert Pujols left for the Angels, manager Tony La Russa retired and ex-Cardinals catcher Mike Matheny took over in the dugout.
