THE TEXAS Rangers are trying to figure out who released the profanity-laden locker-room speech that manager Ron Washington gave to his players before the team's Game 7 clash with the Cardinals in the World Series. "It's unacceptable for this type of thing to be out there," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told ESPNDallas.com yesterday. "It was a private moment for the team, not meant for anyone else's ears. We're looking into it, probably won't have additional comments until we've finished that process.

Chris Carpenter, one of the best clutch pitchers in the storied history of the St. Louis Cardinals, may have thrown his final pitch. General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny announced Tuesday that Carpenter almost certainly won't pitch in 2013 and that his star-crossed career is probably over after a recurrence of a nerve injury that cost him most of last season. Carpenter did not attend, and Mozeliak said the emotions for the 37-year-old were still too raw. Retirement isn't official.

Downing beers in a hotel room doesn't seem the ideal setting to practice mind control, but Chris Carpenter recalled when he and Roy Halladay did so as teammates in Toronto. At the time, they were two righthanders still trying to find their way, intrigued by a book titled The Mental ABC's of Pitching by the late Harvey Dorfman, learning how to mentally clear out the clutter. "If you can't figure out how to get rid of [the distraction], it's pretty tough to execute what you're trying to do," the Cardinals' big righthander said Saturday.

ST. LOUIS - It is a stacked deck of a starting rotation, aces everywhere you look. It is a rotation put together by the Phillies for the sole purpose of papering over whatever other deficiencies might prevent the team from competing for a championship. Halladay, Lee, Hamels, Oswalt. Each has been a wonderful pitcher over the long course of his career. Each has helped get the Phils to this point - in the playoffs and trying to fight their way through to the end. But now, for anyone who has been paying attention, there is only one game that matters, and only one of the stars who is supposed to take the ball on Friday night and decide things in this opening-round death struggle against the St. Louis Cardinals.

If I were a Carpenter Chris Carpenter (1-5) pitched nine innings against the Cubs on Sunday, surrendering seven hits and two walks. The Cardinals' righthander finished strong, retiring eight of the last nine batters he faced, with the base runner coming on a walk. But his teammates were gripped by whatever ails the Phillies and went extra innings with Chicago before winning, 3-2, in 10. Carpenter has won at least 15 games in all of his healthy seasons since 2004, but remained stuck on his lone win back on May 10.   Newsy notes Placido Polanco ended Sunday hitting .320 and Domonic Brown was at .304.

MIAMI - The sellout crowd in the Miami Marlins' new ballpark cheered the introduction of their starters, who were accompanied by women dressed as Latin showgirls. There was another roar for Muhammad Ali, who delivered the first pitch. Then Kyle Lohse and the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals went to work, and the place grew quiet. Lohse held Miami hitless until the seventh inning and pitched into the eighth to help the Cardinals win the first game in Marlins Park, 4-1, Wednesday night.

CHRIS CARPENTER noticed a crowd building behind the chain-link fence. Seems word had spread that the St. Louis Cardinals' ace was doing some throwing. These days, even playing a few minutes of catch is a big deal. "Amazing, isn't it? Did I do OK?" Carpenter asked afterward. The reigning World Series champions certainly hope Carpenter did, since their rotation to open the season may depend on how he feels over the next few days. Carpenter's few minutes of catch with teammate Jake Westbrook yesterday may be considered a positive sign for the Cardinals, who have dealt with a flurry of injuries so far in camp - the status of the guy who won Game 7 of last year's World Series most prominent among them.

The Cardinals are in the midst of their worst slump of the season and are in danger of falling out of both the National League Central and wild-card races. The Phillies have to hope the Cardinals' desperation makes them dangerous because Atlanta's 49-19 home record is by far the best in the majors. St. Louis will try to get on track Thursday with staff ace Adam Wainwright going against the Braves' Jair Jurrjens. Wainwright is in the midst of a four-game losing streak, the longest of his career.

"Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today And don't worry 'bout tomorrow"   - "Let's Live for Today," The Grass Roots AH, WHAT THE hell . . . Go for it. I mean, I'd love to believe the Phillies could flip some of their veterans in the next month and get some future stars. But I don't. They could deal Cliff Lee or Cole Hamels, or even Chase Utley, but I've seen the fruits of the first Cliff Lee deal and the second Hunter Pence deal and well, this administration has fared much better trading for veteran stars than dealing them.

ONE GAME in and it's hard not to come to this conclusion: The Phillies are really not playing in the National League East this season. They're playing in a loosely defined subdivision that should be called TheRest. If either Washington or Atlanta do not play to their potential this season, that's great. It's happened before and it will happen again, but the idea both won't is a little too hopeful, even for early April. Yes, there is also that possibility all the question marks the Phillies begin the season with will be answered positively.

SAN FRANCISCO - Ryan Vogelsong and the Giants saved their season once more, pushing St. Louis to a winner-take-all Game 7 in the NLCS. Turns out the defending champion Cardinals aren't the only team that's tough to put away in October. Vogelsong struck out a career-best nine in another postseason gem, and the Giants avoided elimination for a second straight game by beating St. Louis, 6-1, on Sunday night. Marco Scutaro delivered a two-run double and Buster Posey drove in his first run of the series with a groundout in the first inning as San Francisco struck early to support Vogelsong.

The Giants sure are tough to eliminate this postseason. Barry Zito and the Giants gave themselves at least one more game in the NL Championship Series with a 5-0 victory Friday in St. Louis that forced Sunday's Game 6 back at AT&T Park. Just where the NL West winners want to be with their season on the line - in front of the raucous, orange-towel-waving sellout crowd. "It's great to be back in San Francisco. There is no tomorrow," Giants rightfielder and ex-Phillie Hunter Pence said.

WASHINGTON - Chris Carpenter was every bit the postseason ace he has been in the past for the St. Louis Cardinals. Taking the mound for only the fourth time in 2012, missing a rib after surgery to cure numbness on his right side, the 37-year-old Carpenter pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning, rookie Pete Kozma delivered a three-run homer, and the defending champion Cardinals beat the Washington Nationals, 8-0, Wednesday to take a 2-1 lead...

WASHINGTON - Stephen Strasburg joined his teammates for an off-day workout at Nationals Park on Tuesday, red socks pulled nearly up to his knees while tossing baseballs in the outfield a day before the first postseason game in the nation's capital in 79 years. That's about the extent of activity these days for Strasburg as the Washington Nationals carry on without their acknowledged ace, shut down a month ago. The NL East champions' opponent, the St. Louis Cardinals, are very much counting on their returning ace, Chris Carpenter, who has pitched only 17 innings all year.

ST. LOUIS - Never count out the Cardinals in October - especially after they lose a series opener. Carlos Beltran hit the last two of St. Louis' four homers and the Cardinals chased an ineffective Jordan Zimmermann early in a 12-4 rout of the Washington Nationals on Monday that tied their NL division series at one game apiece. "We know this offense has the potential to do this," Cardinals rookie manager Mike Matheny said. "It was nice to see this, and hopefully, it becomes contagious and the guys just keep going.

ST. LOUIS - Seems only 2 weeks ago we were writing the obituary for this Phillies bullpen. Actually, it was only 2 weeks ago. But things have changed, good things, as a matter of fact, as Thursday night's 10-9 victory over the Cardinals continued to bear out. It was May 9 when Ruben Amaro Jr. decided to make a line change and call up lefties Jake Diekman and Raul Valdes from Triple A Lehigh Valley after watching his bullpen's latest...
