Carter’s three-run blast caps Astros’ comeback

Chris Carter’s a relatively emotionless slugger, a trait that can bring him at times some undue criticism, suggestions he might not care. A slow exit from the batter’s box in the eighth inning was deserved flare Tuesday night. He crushed a 439-foot, go-ahead homer to left field as far as Minute Maid Park’s enclosed roof would allow in a 4-2 Astros win over the A’s. If anything...

Vol. 3…Life And Times of C. Carter

Uh-oh, I feel a rhyme coming on. Chris Carter's schmotato was born on August 4th wearing the Astros hat, 40 ounces he doesn't pour forth cause that forty-oh is his bat. If you can't respect that your whole perspective is wack, maybe you'll love him when he goes by Charlie Really Black. Man, he was conceived as Hurry K'd Carter, but that was just for fun, big...
