Michael Pineda starts for the Yanks tonight. Game is on YES.
Plus, Knicks play the Hawks.
And wow, Joe Posnanski is leaving SI.
And Olberman is out of work.
Not much life on Pineda's heater so far.
I bet he starts in AAA.
Yeah. I'm sure it doesn't look good after the big trade but he's got to get that arm strength going. He had bad body language tonight, too. But hey, we're rooting for him!
Yeah, gotta give him time, and not start as a negative Nellie. Besides, we've got 5 starters, best scenario is Freddy pitches well increasing his trade value.
I'll give Pineda until Memorial Day. If he's still sitting 91-92 then I may panic. But if his change up keeps developing and his slider is up to snuff he'll still get a lot of outs. But ferfuck's sake. Hughes lost a lot of velocity last spring and his season was garbage. In an event, one week from today!
Well, it sounds like he could be starting the season on the DL.
I want Montero back.
Shit, I believe you know fan?
Oh Christ.. If I hear anything close to the words
'Pineda Rules' I'm going to be ill..
 Yeah obviously you can't jump the gun on the trade but with a little (lot?) of imagination, I can VERY easily seeing this go down in history - like if they keep updating Ken Burns documentary, it will be in it, as one of the worst trades ever. Montero becomes a HOF level hitter and Pineda falls into the pitching-in-NY / Yanks'-handling-of-young-pitchers pit of doom.
