The St. Louis Cardinals are considering moving 3B Matt Carpenter out of the leadoff spot, in an effort to upgrade their offense. Carpenter could be moved to the No. 2 spot in the batting order, where some members of the organization believe the best hitter should hit, or he could be dropped to the No. 3 spot, with OF Matt Holliday becoming the cleanup hitter. "He's been so successful in the one hole," general John Mozeliak said. "He gets on base and along with that all of the positives of a leadoff hitter. But moving him deeper into that lineup is something that (manager Mike Matheny) has thought about in terms of implementing. It's just he and I talking out loud right now."
