I couldn't agree more. But seriously what was that. It was clearly something and Girardi was less than convincing in his post game interview

pineda claims it was dirt but it definitely looked like pine tar

 

the funny thing was when they interviewed ortiz and he didnt care. he said everyone does it haha. even farrell said it didnt affect the game. 

 

supposedly boston was accused of doctoring balls last year with lester, bucholz and i think tazawa

Great pitching performances these past two games by the Yanks.   :rant:

 

And Nova is so damn inconsistent.  UGH!

i find it funny that pineda got 10 games for pine tar but martin maldonado for the brewers who clearly punched another player straight in the face got only 5. i think pineda should of just pitched wildly and hit boston players for a lesser suspension

 

i think pineda is not a smart person to do it so obvious in a location where everyone can see. they interviewed farrell after the game and said its not the fact that he did it, its the fact that it was out in the open

It's a grey area since pine tar is commonly used by pitchers. It's not like applying Vaseline, KY Jelly, etc. Where Pineda went wrong was being so open about it rather than hiding it on his belt (Leiter and Cone said they did this) or on his hand inside his glove. I wouldn't call it cheating since hitters don't have a problem with it from a safety standpoint. Plus they know their own pitchers are doing it. Pineda just has to be smarter about it like other MLB P.

 

What I want to know is how did no one in the Yankees dugout see Pineda's neck and/or say something to him? They had to know he was going to be under the microscope. Apparently Lester was so worried about getting caught with something during his start this series that he ended up pitching "naked" and having a rough outing. Foolish by Pineda and the Yankees.

you're so full of sh!t. Nobody in baseball holds pine tar to the same standards as steroids. Pine tar is used legally by players across the mound from the pitcher just look at their bats.

I don't know what Pineda was thinking. Terrible job at hiding it. Ten game suspension- yanks have two days off so this could just be one start he'll miss.. Not a bad scenario

McDonagh and Brassard went to Yanks--Twins Saturday. Hung out some with Mauer, who McDonagh knows from Minnesota. Met GM Brian Cashman.

 

Brassard on meeting Cashman: "He said congratulations. By the way, I'm a Devils' fan."

 

:lol:

This makes me love Cashman even more. I am a bit surprised he's a Devils fan, since he lives in Connecticut - though the Devils/Yankees do have past connections so perhaps that has something to do with it.

Cool story. Pretty deflating 9th. Robertson serves up the tying home run to Willingham. The Twins bat around and score 6 runs. That's D-Rob's first real implosion. Betances struck out 5 of 6 too. He's amazing.

A Don Zimmer "Forrest Gump" list (from SI's Tom Verducci)

 

 

Zimmer met Babe Ruth (in 1947), was a teammate of Jackie Robinson (1954-56) and played for Casey Stengel (1962). He was in uniform for some of the most iconic teams in history: the team that lost the most games ('62 Mets) and the team, including postseason play, that won the most games ('98 Yankees). He was in uniform for the only World Series championship for the Brooklyn Dodgers (1955), one of the most famous World Series home runs (Carlton Fisk's shot in 1975), one of the most famous regular season home runs (Bucky Dent in 1978), the Pine Tar Game (1983), the first night game at Wrigley Field (1988), the first game in Rockies history (1993), and all three perfect games thrown at Yankee Stadium (Don Larsen, David Wells and David Cone).

 

RIP, Don; hopefully there's a managerial opening in that big ballpark in the sky.
