Adam Wainwright reflects:

"His mental strength set him apart.  While there's no doubt he worked harder than any pitcher I've ever played beside, his mental tenacity stood out even more.  In my opinion, he's one of the mentally toughest athletes in history, whatever the sport."

"One of the greatest compliments you can give a pitcher is that the bigger the game, the better he pitches.  And I can't think of many pitchers who pitched better in big games than my friend and former rotation mate, Chris Carpenter."
