Pineda For Jesus?

Last night, Michael Pineda, and his akimbo hat, looked like an overcooked sausage, looking for a bun.The game was over before I sat down.  A 2 run dinger in the first inning just sucked the air out of the Yankee balloon.  Some will say, " you can't win them all."  But how about waiting until the game is underway?It turned the Ju-Ju backwards.In the early innings, as the Yankees...

New York Yankees trade rumors: should they add another starter?

Cole Hamels The New York Yankees have plenty of pitching. Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia, Nathan Eovaldi and Ivan Nova comprise the team’s starting rotation, while Adam Warren, currently exiled to the bullpen, is also a viable option. All of those players are capable of throwing quality innings, but fans are right to have some concerns. Lately, Sabathia can’t seem...

The Long Road Back For Jesus Montero

Back when the New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners executed the trade in 2012 that sent pitcher Michael Pineda to New York for, at the time, catcher and top prospect Jesus Montero along with pitcher Hector Noesi, both players were being talked about as big time pieces for their new respective clubs. Pineda was just coming off of an All Star appearance in his first year, and Montero...

New York Yankees: June letdowns

Another month, another set of players who struggled to get a rhythm going. June is an important point in the season for slumping players, as upper management has to decide if this poor month was simply a rough patch or a ominous sign of bad things to come. Like all other teams, the New York Yankees had their share of players who scuffled both on the mound and at the plate. Here...

Pineda’s Cutter is His Bread and Butter

Michael Pineda has been nothing short of dominant this year. Sure, his 4.08 ERA isn't too dazzling, but with a 2.73 FIP and 2.80 SIERA, it seems as though sequencing and BABIP have hurt him more than poor pitching. Take a glance at Pineda's .349 BABIP — a number 60 points above his career average .279 — and it isn't too difficult to see an overly inflated ERA, especially given...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Jun 24

On Monday I selected Felix Hernandez, Michael Pineda, and a Twins stack. It didn’t quite go as expected.
