DateQuestionAnswer
2011-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steve- What the you know what are the Yankees doing with Noesi? In a game where you have a starter only go 5 innings wouldn't that be a game where you give Noesi a shot at multiple innings? The better question is why is he not in Scranton starting. To me the only spot in a pen that should be occupied by a journeyman in the long man spot (Gordon seems to well suited for this). The constant infusion of one tomato can after another (Carlyle, Sanit, Marquez, Mitre, Pendleton and ever Gordon to a lesser degree) points to serious roster/organizational management issues.
(psk from scottsdale)
I just wrote about this in passing at the PB today. I actually don't mind that they have Noesi on the roster getting some major-league experience, but you're right, they have passed him up for longer relief appearances and spot starts and that makes zero sense. And the embrace of the guys you list over the options in their own system is pathological. As long as George Steinbrenner was alive, I understood that part of the psychosis at work in the organization were that pitchers trained in another organization were ALWAYS better than the ones the Yankees developed themselves. George is gone, but that particular bit of insanity lives on. You can probably throw in the fact that when we someday write the book on Brian Cashman's career, we will find that he was one of the worst GMs in baseball at knowing what to do with his 24th and 25th spots on the roster. To him that's free parking and it doesn't matter who you put there. Why not Buddy Carlyle? Why not Clay Bellinger? (Steven Goldman)
