Carp ranks 9th all-time in WHIP posted after a pitcher turned 30 years old.

Jayson Stark tweeted a link of a Baseball Reference statistic page that powerfully backs up Carp’s reputation as one of the best pitchers over 30 years old in the history of the game. Carp ranks 9th ever in WHIP posted past a pitcher’s 30th birthday. The names on the list are alone impressive.

Secondly, Jenifer Langosch provides probably the best and latest overall summary of the whole situation.
