BA says that he "values groundballs as much as strikeouts", he "doesn't miss many bats and probably never will", and that the indians "envision him developing along the lines of Jake Westbrook". He also struck out only 401 in 641 innings during his minor league career and 49 in 83 innings last year.

That certainly doesnt suggest the kind of wild strikout pitcher we've seen during his time as a closer. Could the switch to the closer role be affecting the way he pitches and causing him to overthrow and go away from the type of pitcher he has been throughout his career?


I hope you're right about this. :-[

Looks like the Great Fausto Experiment ain't over just yet. This from Associated Press:

"He did a real good job against those first two hitters," Indians manager Eric Wedge said, adding he would stick with Carmona as the closer. "Then he just looked like he got in a hurry to get the third out instead of trying not to do too much. ... It just kind of dominoed from there."

Was Wedge watching the same game we were? !+)

MOD EDIT: Enough. Cool it with the insults. Carmona should be removed for a while, I see Betancourt given another shot.
