Carmona getting bombed

Unread postby consigliere » Thu Mar 22, 2007 6:51 pm

You had to figure once Adam Miller was sent down, Carmona would implode. Amazing.

Granted only ST, but this is NOT the kind of start you want to see after you send down the phenom the day before. Bottom of the 2nd, and Carmona has given up 4 runs on FIVE doubles and 2 singles and everytyhing has been crushed. If the wind was not blowing in 20 MPH two balls that were caught on sensational plays by B-Fran and Nixon over the shoulder at the wall would have been 450 foot bombs according to Hammy.

What I hope, is if Carmona struggles early this year, that Shapiro and company are not afraid to yank him. If he is struggling after 5-6 starts, he needs to go to Buffalo and it is Miller Time. And hell, if he does stuggle, they should seriously consider Carmona in the setup role again. He is a dominating pitcher, and was brilliant in the role last year. With how much setup men cost, and how deep they are in the system with starters, I don't see why they don't try to keep him in this role if he fails as a starter this year.

Shouldn't Lee be back in 5-6 starts?

Just looking at the box score, it looked like he's settled down after the first two innings.

As for whether he gets X number of starts before going with Miller, well, that depends on Lee. If Lee is only going to be out a defined amount of time, I'd be surprised if they brought Miller up for just one or two starts in April just to send him back down.

They jerked Baez around like this and reduced him to rubble. Reliever, Closer, starter, reliever, closer...

They should stick to one roll and leave the kid alone.

Isn't it "dead-arm" time down at ST? Or is that an outdated term/concept?

Fausto ... 6 NO HIT innings yesterday against the Braves.

Very encouraging. I think alot of people, myself included, forgot just how excited we were about this kid before his epic meltdown as a closer last year.

Gammons was on ESPN saying Carmona was one of the two best young pitchers he has seen this spring.
