It looks like the end of an era for the St. Louis Cardinals, as former ace Chris Carpenter is set to announce his retirement this offseason.

According to a tweet from Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the 38-year-old free agent has informed the team that he is officially hanging it up after missing all of the 2013 season with right shoulder issues.

The 15-year big league veteran finishes his career 144-94 with a 3.76 ERA, with 95 of those wins coming in his nine seasons as a member of the Cardinals. He's also made an impact in the clubhouse, helping mentor Adam Wainwright and a number of the team's other young pitchers.

So with that, here is a look at the 10 greatest moments in the career of Chris Carpenter, one of the most accomplished pitchers in Cardinals history.
