In response to pumpsie-green's comment:
The question is TWM, can Pineda pitch well, without it? He used pine tar in his first start in Toronto, his second in New York, didn't pitch well in the first inning of the third in Boston, then in the second inning in his third, looked much better, getting two quick outs. He not only embarrassed the organization, but defied them. Girardi and Cashman both said after the game, they had spoken to him about it, last time.
"Hey Joe, didn't you see that pine tar on Pineda's neck tonight or last time out on his hand"? Girardi said "No I did not, but I have an excuse: I have a glass eye". The ump said "Which one" and Girardi replied "Both of them".
WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE
Funny how none of the Sox fans see Buchholz douse his head with a bottle of water before every start even in very cold temps as being a bit strange.
Then going to his greasy wet hair in between pitches.
Pineda is stupid I could see the stuff on his neck wondering when it would be noticed.
Going forward he had better be clean and so should all of the RS pitchers.
