It's Already Been Sung, But It Can't Be Said Enough

All you need is faith.

And Joe Torre has ZERO in young pitchers. Look, Clippard wasn't stellar tonight (4 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 1 K), but he wasn't awful either. Torre decides to pull him after 76 pitches. If it were, say, Mike Mussina or Andy Pettite with the same line, don't you think they'd be out for the 5th?

Earth to Joe Torre: this is why your bullpen is burnt out. You can't keep going to the 'pen early in games for no reason other than your more than ample "gut" tells you so. You need to allow your starters to complete 6 innings if possible.

Look, if there were some sort of unreported injury, mea cupla. But I doubt it, because this is a continual pattern, and why Joseph Paul Torre is indeed one of the major reason the Yankees are performing so badly this season.

I agree with your larger point, but Clippard was replaced by DeSalvo, who isn't exactly a seasoned veteran.

The issue isn't the pitchers' youth. It's that he has no idea how to manage a staff, period.

What it has to do with is "trust," and he has none for the yojnger guys.

Look, Wang gave up 3 runs in the first inning yesterday, and Torre left him in for 8 innings.
