Why do runs, suddenly appear?
Every time you are here.
Deja vu. They're going to
Score off you
David Carpenter is not good. Far, far from it actually. He used to be good and perhaps he can be good again down the line. Right now though, he is not good and it is not good that Joe Girardi continues to use him when other options are available to him. We all understand that he doesn't want to burn out Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller, but at this point he's part of the reason why Girardi is forced to use them. Just the other day, Carpenter could not be counted on to get one out. That's quite literally his only purpose. When he cannot be trusted for that, then it's time to not use him. Maybe send him to the minors to work on his mechanics. It doesn't matter. Just stop bringing him into close games, because we have now reached "Joba" levels of being able to predict exactly what will happen. The Yankees can and must do better than him.
