Rained out: Carlyle called up, Noesi down

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 22, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Today’s game has been rained out. Meanwhile, the Yankees have made a move.

About 10 minutes ago, Buddy Carlyle walked into the Yankees clubhouse and started unpacking his things into a locker next to Joba Chamberlain.

The Yankees didn’t announce the move initially because they weren’t sure Carlyle would arrive in time for the game. His flight had been cancelled and Carlyle had to drive down. He’ll join the bullpen, and along with Lance Pendleton, give the Yankees a pair of multi-inning relievers. Joe Girardi said Carlyle can go three innings if necessary, about the same as Pendleton.

To make room, Hector Noesi was optioned back to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Noesi had yet to pitch for the Yankees, and the team didn’t want to leave him sitting around with no work. He’ll move back into the Triple-A rotation.

To open a 40-man spot, lefty Jose Ortegano was designated for assignment.

    I hate april. Let them play damnit.

  3. Patrick April 22nd, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    It’s not even raining, how could the game be rained out?!

  4. Warning Track Power April 22nd, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    Another game postpone due to rain?
    This and the off-days have made for some lonely nights in April.

    What am I supposed to do now?

    Unreal!!

    Mother Nature needs to leave the Yankees alone.

  5. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 22nd, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    Why bring Noesi up if you were never going to use him?

  6. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 22nd, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    “It’s not even raining, how could the game be rained out?!”

    It’s raining here in Chicago if that makes you feel any better. :)

    Now Buddy Carlyle can experience not pitching except in the most irrelevant of circumstances.

    The Buddy Carlyle Experience actually has a nice ring to it. Consider it copyrighted.

    There’s a wall of rain from Evansville, Indiana to the East Coast.

    Does anyone on this site actually like any of the Yankees? It seems that lately most of the posts are from Phil haters, Gardner haters, Nova haters, and now Jeter haters.
    ======================================================
    i agree niblick. i’ve been coming here for 3 1/2 years and while there was always alot of negativity, it has been constantly increasing and the positive posters have left one after the other.

  12. joeman April 22nd, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    in3 game series and it’s a rain-out the first game of the series MLB should have the teams play a DH in the middle game of the series

  13. stuckey99 April 22nd, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    “So you are saying his UZR right now and other players UZR accurately portray their defense to date?”

    LGY, No, I’m saying they accurately portray what they measure.

    If you have issues with what they measure, I’m listening.

    “I’m not the one that used a 16 game defensive sample???”

    JF, I followed that up with roughly a 330 game sample from 2009 to now.

    Jeter certainly doesn’t measure well in terms of range, but his profile improves as other factors are equated in, which is my understanding of UZR.

    As I say, I’m happy for feedback as to its shortfalls and have specifically requested links or info to a superior method.

    I genuinely asked. This is how productive discussion happens, but it requires participation and cooperation to go anywhere.

    Chase, I’ve asked you some fair, genuine questions. You can’t strut and transparently avoid them at the same time.

  14. MoRings42 April 22nd, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    Rained out lol that’s funny.. The last 2 years I’ve gone to games where I’ve sat through 2-3 hour rain delays and both times received nothing for them. This year, I hear of people getting tickets to new games and now they’re calling games when it’s not even raining yet.

    ========================
    are you in b’more? weather.com says its raining and the forcast is for heavy rain pretty much all w/e. plus its financially advantageous for the O’s to rain this game out.

    ********************************************************************
    Sooner or later the Yankees will be forced to play a DH to make up for the postponed games.
    Unless the weekend weather report in Baltimore in wrong, I think its very unlikely a DH will be played this weekend.
    I took one look at the Balt weather forecast and threw my arms up in the air in disgust

  17. MoRings42 April 22nd, 2011 at 6:29 pm

  19. YsGuy April 22nd, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    this from a real, longtime yankees fan i respect alot:

    “I thought Lohud was a Yankee blog, and I thought that people who posted there would generally support Yankees players, and Yankees icons like Jeter and Posada especially. But man, if it was up to some of these people, Jeter and Posada would be unceremoniously dumped post-haste. It’s sickening.”

    i totally agree. having the occasional complaint is one thing but this blog has gone off the rails lately imo.

  20. Jerkface April 22nd, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Jeter certainly doesn’t measure well in terms of range, but his profile improves as other factors are equated in, which is my understanding of UZR.

    UZR weights all the factors the same: Double Play runs, Errors, Range.

    I would place more weight on Ranges and maybe Double Play Runs over Errors. Jeter matches up well against other shortstops because he doesn’t make many errors. We’ve had this argument (not us in particular but those on this site) before, where I have always thought range is more important because having more errors doesn’t matter if you get to more balls overall than the other player.

    From 09 to 2011, Jeter has the HIGHEST error prevention of any SS in the game. 2 more above even J-Roll. It probably doesn’t hurt that he has had excellent scoopers at 1st, but I think we can agree that jeter generally doesn’t make many misplays. This is propping up his lackluster double play runs above average and abysmal range factor.

  21. Yankeefran April 22nd, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Bummer….drove all the way down for the game. At least I got to see Camden Yards. It is a really nice stadium.

  22. tomingeorgia April 22nd, 2011 at 6:33 pm

    YsGuy,
    I haven’t been here as long as you, but even in the last few months I’ve noticed the trend. People who complain about Girardi managing by his binder of stats then refer to their own binder of stats to make points. Me, I just like to watch baseball over a season. I root for the Yankees. I don’t hate anybody. I want positive outcomes for all our boys, and complete collapse for the Red Sox. Does that make me less of a fan?

  23. randy l. April 22nd, 2011 at 6:33 pm

    “There’s a wall of rain from Evansville, Indiana to the East Coast.”

    uh oh.

    the blog gets ugly when it has to go two days in a row without a game.

    who’s going to get beat up the most ?

    jeter? gardner? posada? hughes?

    i’m guessing jeter gets bashed the most tonight simply because gardner got it all day.

  24. Jerkface April 22nd, 2011 at 6:33 pm

    If 2 players make the same number of plays (get to the same number of balls) I’ll take the guy who doesn’t make errors. But I’m not going to suggest Jeter’s 6 errors are better against Andrus’ 20 errors if Andrus also makes 40 extra players. Heck, if Jeter makes 600 plays, and Andrus makes 601 plays, I’ll take the extra errors because those are balls he had a chance to play and might play in the future and errors are not all as bad as hits. (throwing the ball away can be bad, but if you look at bobbles on the infield/throws that aren’t scooped, most runners only advance 1 base. Singles that get through can advance guys 2 bases

  25. pat April 22nd, 2011 at 6:35 pm

    Since I didn’t know there was a pitcher named Jose Ortegano until 30 seconds ago, I guess I won’t be upset about him being DFAed.

  26. stuckey99 April 22nd, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    JF, why does Jeter’s lack of errors overcompensate for this lack of range? Is UZR non-weighted?

    Put the numbers in context. How many MORE outs is an average SS producing via greater range than he is NOT giving up through more errors, particularly the bad throw kind that perhaps turn into 2 base errors?

    Is there a simple system that shows the difference between range and errors and the numbers of bases saved or lost respectively?

    I’m genuinely asking.

  27. MTU April 22nd, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    Randy-

    It looks like I picked the right weekend to go Hiking.

    ;)

  28. Jerkface April 22nd, 2011 at 6:37 pm

    I don’t know. You could look at Dewan Plus Minus which simply represents plays made / not made. UZR isn’t weighted.

  29. stuckey99 April 22nd, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    “But I’m not going to suggest Jeter’s 6 errors are better against Andrus’ 20 errors if Andrus also makes 40 extra players.”

    Neither am I, I just want to know where I can find the metrics that demonstrate this.

  30. West Coast Yankee Fan April 22nd, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    A rain out out after an off-day? This blog should degenerate into absolute hell within an hour.

    Hence the big contract.

    “It looks like I picked the right weekend to go Hiking.”

    gb7 didn’t tell you to go take a hike did he?

    actually you should take him with you and give him a club and a ball. that way it won’t be so embarrassing for him if someone sees him out there . he can say he wasn’t playing golf but just hiking.

    not many people know it , but gb7 is very sensitive about being a bad golfer and it’s hard to pretend you are hiking at the blue monster or some other nice course.

  41. Jerkface April 22nd, 2011 at 6:45 pm

  42. tomingeorgia April 22nd, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    JF, except the people who quote all the different stats are being “scientific”. People who actually watch games are “anecdotal”.

  52. stuckey99 April 22nd, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    “plus-minus explanation”

    So just so I’m clear, and again, genuine question, if and when I have criticism I’ll voice it directly.

    This is scaled system but applied subjectively, with an aspect of “judging” involved by whomever is logging that particular game, ala an official scorer.

    Do I understand that correctly?

    How about context?

    is the difference between Tulo and Derek Jeter over 2007-2009 90 outs, or 90 runs, or neither?

  53. Jerkface April 22nd, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    Is Buddy Carlisle a lefty?

  62. 4 NYY April 22nd, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    Range is overrated since you can’t put 2 players on the same batted ball and tell who gets to which and know at what speed the ball was traveling on each. Al this crap is so childish.

    Some players are faster, have better arms, quicker, etc. BFD. I’ll take Jeter over most SS still. He falls into the “smarter” category, as he has learned his craft well over the yrs.

    Crying about his hitting or fielding is absolute nonsense. If he doesn’t hit as good as even last year, ( which was a long way from “horrible” ) then I would simply say he is declining and it’s a natural thing. And, if that’s the case, he’s not gonna be playing another spot.

    But, give these guys a fair chance and stop complaining about each and every one every game. A lot of pressure is being dealt with by them especially in N.Y. They all take turns being hot and cold.

    More explanation of the defensive stats

  68. stuckey99 April 22nd, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    “I don’t think it has a direct comparison for runs or outs. Though I suspect the closest might be outs.”

    I guess what I’m asking for is context. Scales are meaningless without context.

    What does “90″ mean over 450 or so games? Is it a dramatic difference with significant effect on yearly team win totals?

    The difference between World Class sprinters, for instance is fractions of the second. But baseball is a different game. I’m genuinely interested to know how the rightful Gold Glove SS and the relative butcher actually influence their team’s play?

  69. mick April 22nd, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    The difference between World Class sprinters, for instance is fractions of the second. But baseball is a different game. I’m genuinely interested to know how the rightful Gold Glove SS and the relative butcher actually influence their team’s play?

    Look at how the points are tabulated. You get positive points if you make a play most other SS’s don’t make. You lose points if you aren’t making the play. So thats outs (for plus minus).

    For runs saved, its based on the run expectancy of the entire league in situations. So if Jeter makes a play that gets the out at 2nd instead of 1st, nailing the lead runner, he will get a bigger boost for that play.

    i love derek jeter. i think he’s been as good a player as any of the greats that have worn the pinstripes. i dont care what the stats say, they never could describe derek’s game anyway.

    derek will know when the time comes for him to hang them up and when he does, the yankees will be a lesser team for it.

    it has been my honor and my pleasure to have seen the entire careers of 2 of the great baseball players of any generation play for the yankees and many of you have nothing but complaints about one of them. and wait till mo blows 2 saves, you will want to throw him into the garbage heap, too.

    we talk about true yankees. well im going to talk about true yankees FANS;

    IN MY OPINION-

    true yankees fans root for the yankees. even when they are losing. even when they suck.
    true yankees fans root for guys who are struggling to get better.
    true yankees fans root for yankees they dont nesesarily like, because they are yankees.
    true yankees fans respect what great players have done for the yankees and dont want them dropped like yesterday’s garbage.

    i love derek jeter. i think he’s been as good a player as any of the greats that have worn the pinstripes. i dont care what the stats say, they never could describe derek’s game anyway.

    derek will know when the time comes for him to hang them up and when he does, the yankees will be a lesser team for it.

    it has been my honor and my pleasure to have seen the entire careers of 2 of the great baseball players of any generation play for the yankees and many of you have nothing but complaints about one of them. and wait till mo blows 2 saves, you will want to throw him into the garbage heap, too.

    we talk about true yankees. well im going to talk about true yankees FANS;

    IN MY OPINION-

    true yankees fans root for the yankees. even when they are losing. even when they suck.
    true yankees fans root for guys who are struggling to get better.

    “You get positive points if you make a play most other SS’s don’t make. You lose points if you aren’t making the play. So thats outs (for plus minus).”

    the problem is that you have a sabermetric guy who knows he’s judging jeter.

    and he doesn’t like jeter because he’s a sabermetric guy.

    even yankee sabermetric guys don’t like jeter, right jerkface.

    YsGuy,
    I haven’t been here as long as you, but even in the last few months I’ve noticed the trend. People who complain about Girardi managing by his binder of stats then refer to their own binder of stats to make points. Me, I just like to watch baseball over a season. I root for the Yankees. I don’t hate anybody. I want positive outcomes for all our boys, and complete collapse for the Red Sox. Does that make me less of a fan?

    The BIS Video Scouts are former ball players. So the people ‘judging jeter’ are ballplayers. Against a jury of his peers, he is found wanting.

    name the players.

    what former major league player is going to sit in dewan’s basement and look at every defensive play made in baseball ?

    you know they are unpaid interns or working for peanuts.
