Carpenter With Long Rest

Somebody posed the question of how Chris Carpenter does after 5+ days off a long time ago on a game thread.  I had time this morning, so I looked it up thought this was worthy of a fan post...so here goes:

This does not including games coming off of the DL or opening day games because I believe it would throw off the numbers a bit since those are closely monitored pitch count type games, usually.

Based on this data, I would conclude that Carpenter is significantly better than normal (a third of an IP more per game, more than half a hit less, more than a quarter of an earned run less, and over 1.5X the K:BB) with 5 days rest, however the effects do not always carry over when pitching on more than 5 days rest.
