TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, YES Network, MLB Network and WFAN

WEATHER: Temperatures supposed to be in the 50s. Feels colder than that for some reason, but that might be a matter of getting used to being up north again.

UMPIRES: HP Bob Davidson, 1B John Tumpane, 2B Brian O’Nora, 3B James Hoye

LUCKY SEVENTH: The Yankees are 4-0 this season when leading after six innings and 0-5 when tied or trailing after six innings.

TRUE YANGY: Yangervis Solarte has hit safely in his first seven career starts, becoming the first Yankee to accomplish the feat since Hideki Matsui hit safely in his first seven career starts in 2003. … The last Yankee to have a longer such streak was Mike Heath in 1978 (13 games). That’s according to the Elias Sports Bureau. … Solarte is tied for the Major League lead (with Tampa Bay’s Desmond Jennings) with six doubles… became the first player since 1900 with at least six doubles through his first seven career games, also according to the Elias Sports Bureau. … Solarte leads the Yankees in total bases (18), doubles (6), extra-base hits (6), RBI (7), batting avg. (.429) and OBP (.484). He is tied for the team lead with 12 hits (also Ellsbury).

FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME: Michael Pineda has faced the Red Sox only once in his career, suffering the loss in a 12-8 Mariners defeat on July 24, 2011 at Fenway Park. Pineda’s line: 4.1 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 HR, 1 BB, 4 K). Pineda is 2-2 with a 4.40 ERA in 10 career starts vs. AL East clubs.

UPDATE, 7:14 p.m.: Pineda hitting 94-95 mph in a scoreless first inning. Two balls hit pretty hard — deep fly to right, line drive snagged by Johnson — but Pineda has a 1-2-3 innings. One of the other writers just asked me what I expect tonight, and for whatever reason I honestly expect Pineda to pitch a really good game.

UPDATE, 8:11 p.m.: Not much action so far tonight, which is good news for Pineda. He’s dealing through four scoreless innings. Couple of walks are his only base runners. He’s struck out four.

UPDATE, 8:22 p.m.: Huge hit for McCann, who snapped an 0-for-14 with a sharp RBI single down the first-base line. It’s now a 1-0 Yankees lead in the bottom of the fourth. Still no outs. Still runners at the corners.

Michael PinedaUPDATE, 8:28 p.m.: Yankees get another run on a double play ball — Girardi argued briefly about the out at first base, but it was clearly the right call — and it’s now 2-0 heading into the fifth. Meanwhile, if you’ve missed it on Twitter, the NESN broadcast has shown Pineda with some sort of foreign substance on his hand. It looks like pine tar, it’s definitely something. My guess is that nothing will come of it — I’m of the belief that enough pitchers do something like that regularly that teams generally don’t care very much — but it’s out there.

UPDATE, 8:42 p.m.: Dean Anna! Not his first big league hit, but certainly his first big league home run. Must be an incredible feeling to go deep and then have Derek Jeter slap you in the head as you go into the dugout. It’s now 3-0 Yankees.

UPDATE, 8:47 p.m.: Nava did not take the express route going after that deep fly ball. It’s a two-out double for Jeter.

UPDATE, 8:51 p.m.: After the Jeter double, Ellsbury singles in the run and it’s a 4-0 Yankees lead. Pineda still working on a one-hitter heading into the sixth.

UPDATE, 9:09 p.m.: There goes the shutout. Nava goes deep just as Cesar Cabral is warming in the bullpen.

UPDATE, 9:12 p.m.: Pineda’s at 94 pitches and he’s out of the game. Doesn’t look too pleased about it, either. Here’s Cesar Cabral to face Pierzynski with one on and a 4-1 Yankees lead.

    Go Pineda! Go Yanks!

  2. Jerkface April 10th, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    Looking forward to a dominant performance by Pineda. They will need it.

  3. yankeefeminista April 10th, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    I think th game is on MLB network for those who are blacked out.

  4. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    “Trisha,

    Interesting numbers someone probably gets well paid to analyze. Winning this series would change doubtful feelings. I too predict a win tonight. A first such prediction for me.

    I consider that a very good sign then!

    :)

  5. yankeefeminista April 10th, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    Sitting in terrace above home plate and pumped to watch Pineda. Place is emptier right now than a weekday day game against Kansas City.

  6. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    YF – I’m blacked out of MLB.TV too

    :(

  7. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    GO YANKS!!!

    GO MICHAEL PINEDA!!!

    Enjoy the game all. The Stadium is unbelievably empty. :(

  8. yankeefeminista April 10th, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    Pineda looks loose, waving to friends in the stands and smiling.

  9. chicken_stanley April 10th, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    lay it on us Shame

  10. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    Alright… *gets comfy*… now, onto my problem. I’m thinking about getting rid of my cable service but the only reason I don’t is because of the Yankees. I was looking into some Slingbox options and wanted to get an idea of if there are any options for me to watch using an online streaming thingy.

    Thoughts?

  11. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West April 10th, 2014 at 7:09 pm

    Just rode 20 miles on 50 minutes on my bike – no time for a shower – but i made it before the first pitch

  12. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    Does anyone have a Slingbox btw?

  13. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West April 10th, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    Shame –

    Justin.tv is the only way i’ve been able to stream games for free

    aside from MLB.com – im not sure there are many options

  14. Triple Short of a Cycle April 10th, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    You can barely hear the fans booing Ortiz

  15. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Hi Michelle! So far so good.

    BTW, NESN hawking season tickets for the 2014 season, so they are hardly sold out at fenway.

  16. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West April 10th, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    I have slingbox – i use it while tailgating at college football games to watch other games

  17. BD (Boston Dave) April 10th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Pineda hit 96 on NESN gun

    not bad

  18. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    But isn’t MLB TV blacked out for people in-market? I’d just get my own subscription if it isn’t.. but I wasn’t keen on the idea of using a proxy or anything. I’m not as savvy as you lol, but I appreciate the offer!

  19. ecc16 April 10th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Hitting 96 today

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Girardi getting major props from NESN for managing the way he did last season with all of the injuries.

    :)

    KELLY JOHNSON!!!

  21. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West April 10th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Kelly “Tex” Johnson! Atta boy!

  22. Benny Blanco April 10th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    pineda!

  23. Triple Short of a Cycle April 10th, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Ortiz just as comfortable as ever up at the plate

  24. Doreen April 10th, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Great top of the first. And a good resolution to my bad day via phone call.

    Go Yankees!!!!

  25. SweetSpot April 10th, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Damn infield defense bit us in the caboose again. :)

  26. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Shame, I believe it is. Let me check MLB.com and see if I’m blacked out of this game. I am on MLB TV

  27. longtimefan April 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    Johnson looks better at 1st than 3rd

  28. bbb51 April 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    Who needs Tex?

  29. chicken_stanley April 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    nice top half! crooked number time!

  30. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    “We are getting better defense at 1B from Kelly Johnson than we would from Teixeira”

    I think Johnson’s D has been underrated on this forum, both throughout ST and during the regular season games.

  31. pete2 April 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    Pineda looks good.

    Nice play by Johnson, Tex might be getting that Wally Pipp feeling.

  32. jmv April 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    Good evening!

    I get really excited every time I see 95 on the radar gun. It means a healthy Pineda

  33. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West April 10th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Ughh – why is he so greasy/homeless looking

  34. austinmac April 10th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Way too few people there. We need excitement.

  35. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Michelle – How do you feel about the Slingbox…? I have parents that can afford fancy things like tv. ;)

  36. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Blacked out both on mlb.com and mlb.tv

  37. pete2 April 10th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Johnsons D at 3B was not underrated, but he looks fine at 1B since this is the same side of the diamond as 2B

  38. yankeefeminista April 10th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Easy 95-96 from my perspective but less AO please. Also very nice play by Johnson. That LD was a shot.

    Trish, TV or online? It’s supposed to be on MLB network. But I guess NESN gets priority?

  39. yankeefeminista April 10th, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Go Jeet!

  40. luis April 10th, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Late to the party… Go Yankees!!

    Hi YF!..You lucky putz!!! ..I wish I was there with you guys

  41. NYY fan in NH April 10th, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Gardner swung at ball 4… Ugh!

    Bernabe April 10th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    When Trisha says she’s blacked out, she’s blacked out of the YES/MY9 broadcast against the Red Sox, because she is in Red Sox territory. She should not be blacked out of NESN on MLB.TV. Just as you, in NJ, should not be blacked out of YES/MY9.

    ———–

    Ohhhh.. gotcha. Hmmm. I could just buy an AppleTV thing, or use this old PS3 my friend gave me.. I gotta think this over.

  43. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    “Ughh – why is he so greasy/homeless looking”

    :lol:

    He definitely is gross.

    All the better to grease up the ball, my dear!

    *************

    FWIW, the NESN graphic showed only one of those pitches in the strike zone.

  44. NYY fan in NH April 10th, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    Bucholz way up in the zone so far

  45. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    Classic Jeter hit right there.

  46. luis April 10th, 2014 at 7:20 pm

    Aha!!! El Capitan!!!

  47. rr212 April 10th, 2014 at 7:20 pm

    Nice turnout at the stadium. Disgraceful.

  48. jmv April 10th, 2014 at 7:20 pm

    Captain forever!

  49. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:20 pm

    I’m not blacked out of NESN. So you shouldn’t be blacked out of YES. I’m blacked out of everything but NESN. Talk about having a horseshoe up my butt…

    :mad:

    Nice, thanks. I’m starting to feel like getting a better internet connection would be cheaper than anything else.

  51. Jerkface April 10th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    Black outs apply to both broadcasts. If you live in the area where you can be reasonably expected to get the game on local TV, then you cannot watch the game. So if you live in NY you are blacked out of Yankee games. You cannot watch Yankee games on mlb.tv

  52. Benny Blanco April 10th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    96 and the arm strenghth is not there yet. wow

  53. Triple Short of a Cycle April 10th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    If they are smart they should walk Beltran

  54. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:22 pm

    “Trisha, try NESN on mlb.com”

    I’m not given that option. When I tried to link to the televised game (they only showed one television option), it just told me that I was blacked out. They probably go by IP address. Otherwise no idea why.

  55. jmv April 10th, 2014 at 7:23 pm

  57. NYY_Girl_Penny April 10th, 2014 at 7:23 pm

    Pedroia is a great 2B, Id take him over Cano any day. Not saying is a better this or that, but he is a better all around true team player… and his skills speak for themself.

    Nice to see the stadium so jam packed tonight.

    Makes sense. When I tried to tune into MLB network TV, I was blacked out; but when I went to the alternate station, I was able to view the Phils-Brewers.

    Beltran hit that good. Bradley got a real good jump. Pedey also made a nice play. Got to keep making good contact.

    ==================

    Actually, she should be blacked out on both unless they changed something recently. NESN and other RSN wants you to buy the cable subscription as that how they make most of their money. MLB.TV revenues get split among 30 teams.

    I’m not one to call for hitting players very much, but Ortiz needs to be flipped.

  71. NYY_Girl_Penny April 10th, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    If McCaan doesn’t get at least 1 hit tonight I am officially junking him in the trash been. He’ll need to work his way out. Personally I don’t know why people got so excited with about him, he reminds me of Russell Minor League Martin.. I don’t see him as a middle of the order hitter in any year of his career thus far. Yankees and Girardi are trying to sell that tho…

    Did they give him a No trade?

  72. bbb51 April 10th, 2014 at 7:27 pm

    Hey Luis good to see you here. Howdy Shame,YF and Doreen.

  73. NYY_Girl_Penny April 10th, 2014 at 7:27 pm

    Curtis Granderson would fit right in with this group.. he’s got like 3 hits and 1HR and batting .137 :)

    maybe we can trade ellsbury for him? get more .100′s hitters since we only have 5.

  74. 4TrainNorth April 10th, 2014 at 7:27 pm

    I don’t think Napoli gets enough hate on here.

    I am. I can get NESN via DTV, but that’s it.

    Agreed, and who is that (NOW METS) pitcher that everyone hates his antics? Valverde ? Since he is in the NL now whenever he has to bat he is instant bean ball.. they should give an extra out to the Mets if the opposing team doesn’t throw it him.

  78. Captain Clutch April 10th, 2014 at 7:29 pm

    Pineda really looks good so far tonight. I love how confident he looks on the mound.

  79. Triple Short of a Cycle April 10th, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    how good is pineda?

  83. bbb51 April 10th, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    Pineda might be too green to knock down Ortiz, it should be CC, but I think they are buddies.

    I kind of miss the old days when players weren’t so friendly to other teams.

  84. jmv April 10th, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    I love this guy. Pure gas. Awesome slider. A CU once in a while, and it’s cruising mode on

    “Guess I was wrong, Trish.”

    Not a prob. I guess unless it’s a national broadcast I will always be relegated to NESN via television.

    See that’s what I thought. That if I wanted to just use MLBtv I’d have to find a work around for my IP address.

    I’m gonna look into this Slingbox thing more lol.. steal other people’s cable!

  88. luis April 10th, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    Ok..First inning I get to watch Pineda live… He got two k’s, one with a somewhat hanging slider and the other one with a good FB with some late movement..I hope the Sox don”t adjust their approach

  89. Tyler April 10th, 2014 at 7:32 pm

  92. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    Pineda looking great so far.

  93. Triple Short of a Cycle April 10th, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    Very unlike McCann? He hit 230 2 years ago and 250 last year

    ——————————————————————

    I’ve never really understood why the Yanks always pitch away to Ortiz. I don’t really want them to plunk him and put men on base but I always thought they’d do better if they established in the inside of the plate on him. He just digs in and looks so comfortable on the mound. Not like he’ll charge the mound on Pineda anyway lol.

  95. luis April 10th, 2014 at 7:34 pm

    I am almost speechless with joy, awe, and excitement! This is the Pineda I felt sure we were going to get back, but of course there’s no way of knowing for certain until it actually happens.

  99. Captain Clutch April 10th, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    Ouch this is Tex like….

  100. ac1 April 10th, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    he will hit.
    one day it will just all click.

  101. NYY fan in NH April 10th, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    I hate Maddon for bringing that shift to MLB. It should be illegal!

  105. Jerkface April 10th, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    It doesn’t matter what his percentage of outfield hits are by location. What matters is the percentage of his ground balls which go to the right side. He could be a guy who gets flyball hits to center & right, line drives skew more to right, and then ground balls are mostly right. In which case, it makes sense to shift on him.

    With any discussion of the shift, it all comes down to: If we get this batter to hit a ground ball, where will it go most often?

  106. Triple Short of a Cycle April 10th, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    And of course Joe won’t touch McCann’s spot in the lineup. Death Taxes and the number 5 spot

  108. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    jerkface if you’re here. When someone keeps hitting into a shift, is it easy enough for that batter to hit the ball elsewhere? Everyone is acting like it’s McCann’s fault, but fat ass Ortiz hits into the shift all the time too.

  109. Hassey April 10th, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    AJ asking for ball instead of how are you

  110. bbb51 April 10th, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    It means he needs to hit fewer ground balls.

  111. jmv April 10th, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    McCann will find the gaps sooner than later. He is hitting the ball really hard lately

  120. Jerkface April 10th, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    Generally its not that easy to adjust to a shift. The whole thing with shifting is that how a guy hits the ball is a product of his swing and approach. If batters were so good at hitting the ball where defenders weren’t, then batting averages would be higher.

  121. pete2 April 10th, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    Not giving up on McCann yet, he will hit, but I thought the money would have been best spent on Saltamallachia on a shorter deal (or even AJP) which would have freed up money for Drew or a RP’er and keep the C open for Murphy or Sanchez in the coming years

    Pineda is not hitting his spots with the FB but that slider looks sick.

    He had trouble locating the fastball last game too but settled in better later on.

    It seems reasonable that he’s throwing hard and sacrificing location a bit. Hey, as long as they can’t hit it….

    ===================

    He started going the other way more often when Agon joined. Thats why he is so tough, he can pull the inside and middle of the plate pitches and go the other way on outside pitches. No real holes.

    Pineda’s fastball down to 90-91. Mechanics? Fatigue?

  139. Jerkface April 10th, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    There are like 6 batters in the Red Sox lineup who should have no chance against Pineda’s slider. Only Sizemore, Pedroia, and Ortiz have any chance with it.

  140. chicken_stanley April 10th, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    maybe I’m paranoid, but velo way down this inning: 90-91

  141. pete2 April 10th, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    Sizemore can still hit but his defense in CF is awful, no range, that why he is in LF and Bradley who is a superior defensive player is in CF

  146. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    Okay so here’s a question – maybe a real stupid one (for a change?) When Nova got someone out at second – can’t remember who it was – because the guy was off the bag, they said that Roberts was raising his hand for the ball. Does that mean that there is some signal between the catcher and the pitcher, and the catcher picks it up from the 2B. Because of course there would be no way of knowing otherwise. How about on 1B? Is that typically the pitcher picking it up in his peripheral vision? How about 3B?

  147. Triple Short of a Cycle April 10th, 2014 at 7:51 pm

  157. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    I still think we need to let McCann get used to the league, the Stadium, the pitchers, etc. before we decide that he is either good or not good. I definitely believe that he is going to more than earn his salary and will come up big. But there’s a lot of time for us to see whether that’s true.

  158. blake April 10th, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    Pineda looks great….lot of his fastballs have that cut action again tonight and he’s throwing something about 89 or 90 that’s got 2 seam movement…..don’t know if it a CU or an actual 2 seam

  168. SweetSpot April 10th, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    McCann doesn’t have a particularly weak arm. In 2013 opponents trying to steal were successful only 57 percent of the time against him.

    The infielders will have a signal they are breaking for the bag such as opening and closing a glove. The pitcher will then count to one or two, spin and throw.

    No offense intended, but I absolutely cringe when anybody makes a comment about “all season” or “the rest of the season”, when we’re in the 10th game.

    There are different kinds of comments that I find pretty unbearable (I don’t like negativity, but hey that’s just me), but someone negatively predicting an entire season for a player, the team, or parts of the team, when you’re in game 10, well that tops the list for me.

    Depending on how the rest of Pineda’s season goes the Yankees should buy him out until age 30.

    On a Matt Moore or Teheran type deal absolutuy……they should offer it…..because at that money the yanks can just absorb it if he gets hurt. He looks great tonight

    the movement is almost too much on that “changeup” at times … if he can harness that pitch, wow.

    He can’t be trying to cheat, it’s obvious to everyone where he has it, whatever it is.

  234. pete2 April 10th, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    Ellsbury probably beats that for an IF hit.

    Now Buchholz will fall about worrying about him on 1B

  235. Michelle B. of Yankee Stadium West April 10th, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    well stupidly, i made plans tonight – so im DVr’ing the rest of the game and i’ll stay away from the internets till i watch it later tonight. Have a good night everyone and see you tomorrow..

  236. Shame Spencer April 10th, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    Not a bad idea to try to lock Pineda into a more team friendly deal if all goes smoothly this year.. I wanna see how he performs over the course of a full season, but man it’s hard not to like him when he’s throwing like this.

    You might want to check your philosophy. This offense is going to kill us all season?

    Yankee runs by game

    1 – 2

    2- 1

    3 – 4

    4 – 7

    5 – 0

    6 – 6

    7 – 4

    8- 5

    9 – 4

    It’s like you’re using a microscope to examine the moon.

    I don’t think there is anyone who would disagree, at least in their rational moments, that nobody can predict anything 10 games into the season other than how the other 9 went.

    Rational people look at the progression over the games since there are many things that can account for not being at top speed at the beginning of the season. Add to it that some posters mentioned that April never seems to be a great month for the Yankees, you’d be wiser to just drop it.

    It’s beyond ridiculous to average out runs per game when you have all of 9 in the book.

    ========================

    Yankees have had a sub 500 April only 3 times since 1996, Did not make it past the ALDS in either year, and in one case did not make the playoffs

    In the years they went to the WS since 1996 they have went 108-59. In years they were bounced in the ALDS or never made it to the playoffs they went 97-81.

    Injuries in 2009 kept the 2009 team from doing better than 12-10 in April

    Jeters swinging the bat pretty good. Wonder if he changes his mind on retirement. I would not mind him playing 3B for a couple of years when they release Arod.

    So sick of people harping on Pedroias home team discount. He was almost 3 years removed from free agency and all extensions that far removed from free agency are discounted. He actually got an extra 6 years and 88 million for his age 32-37 seasons, and teams know he is not the same player away from Fenway.

    More from column B. Read the article I linked to. Lester did the same thing in the playoffs last year – it is why they won the WS – that and Ortiz juiced it like Manny in the 2007 ALCS

    MLB Network all but accused Pineda of pine tar. They showed a close up of Pineda’s hand in the 4th and 5th inning. Then Tom Red Sox Smoochie Verducci said “you can be the judge of what’s on his hand.” Then Red Eye Costas said “would you be concerned about what’s on his hand” to John Smoltz.

    *****

    Sox deserve some of their own medicine. This is the same franchise that got inside word about Paul Byrd before the 2007 ALCS start re: PEDS and linked it to the media. And the same one that threw Terry Francona under the bus with painkiller abuse accusations and potentially violated HIPAA with their medical staff.

    chicken, I learned from Alice Cooper today that chickens can’t fly. He didn’t know either. When confronted with a stray example on stage, he tried to toss it free. The chicken went straight into the front row wheelchair section where things didn’t go so nice for Mr. Chicken.

  369. Tar April 10th, 2014 at 9:06 pm

    Did anybody else notice in the Girardi interview when asked whom was going to close his answer was

    ” Phelps and Thornton are my most EXPERIENCED arms out there”.

    Joe’s achilles heel is he weighs vets over talent almost exclusively. I think that statement was a peek at how Joe’s thinks these things out.

  370. mick April 10th, 2014 at 9:06 pm

    maybe the chicken couldn’t fly cuz he bit its head off?

  371. The Fifth Core Foursman April 10th, 2014 at 9:06 pm

    Honestly, that could be sweat & dirt.

    Pine tar is dark and sticky. You need it on your fingertips to be effective. It’ll help you get a better grip/ increased rotation on the ball.

  452. bigdan22 April 10th, 2014 at 9:33 pm

    Nice job by bullpen in the 7th. Six outs of thin ice to go.

    But what’s up with Pineda? I didn’t even think he should have started the 7th. He totally lost his FB in the 5th and 6th. He reverted back to the same guy we saw in ST. 90/91. There were at least two FB below 90 as well, 87 and 89. And they weren’t CUs because he threw them to righties.

    Didn’t Pineda maintain 93/94 until the 6th last time? I think he hit 95 in the 6th. This is def something to watch next time.

    But on the flip side, CU was a real weapon to lefties.

    Wonder what Pineda’s average velo was tonight…..I don’t know what the YES gun had him at but the mlbnetwork one had a lot of 93s and 94s early but after the 5th mostly 91s and an occasional 92…..lot of pitches that looked like cutters too that were about 90
    =====================

    His velo progressively dropped after the 1st, by the 4th inning there were very few 93-94 and almost none after. I don’t know if he was trying to throw a cutter or his FB was just cutting on him.

    Regardless, he was effective, Tough test and he passed with flying colors.

    It’s very weird…..and I don’t know if he’s trying to do it or not but it’s like he’s throwing a cutter …..or he’s just getting around the ball and it’s zapping the velocity a little……he seems to be able to control it though and still hit spots with it so I don’t know. In his last start I didn’t see a lot of the cut action……the FB stayed more true and the velo was better.

    Maybe Chad can asked about this…..either way it seems effective

  470. bigdan22 April 10th, 2014 at 9:42 pm

    Tonight is a great example of how important a couple MPH on a FB can mean to some pitchers. After Pineda’s last start I remarked as to whether this was the same guy we saw in ST. Last start he sat 93/94. Today, at that velocity he was unhittable. But when his velocity went down to ST Pineda, 90/91, he was getting smoked. There were better swings off his slider too when his fastball dropped mph.

    Tells you something doesn’t it? At least right now, Pineda needs those couple extra mph.

  471. Tar April 10th, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    Another pitch that caught too much of the plate

    Blake,

    In previous interviews Pineda has said he does not intentionally throw a cutter. His fastball just has natural movement. And I’m sure he gets into some trouble with his grip/mechanics.

  474. jmills April 10th, 2014 at 9:44 pm

    Cone bringing up the point about Phelps that he doesn’t really gain much from being in the pen. He really should be starting.

  477. NYY fan in NH April 10th, 2014 at 9:45 pm

    Couldn’t be more impressed with Pineda’s outing.. Very solid. Him and Tanaka are a bright start to the season!

    thornton will close.Betances only comes in if it’s extras

  486. igotid88 April 10th, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    Pineda will have to do this at least 15 more times with or without pine tar. I think right now it’s more like watching a pitcher for the first time and the pitches are working. And if and when he fatigues.

  487. jmv April 10th, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    JF,

    Phelps IS a starter. But he lost his job to the guy who pitched 6 innings today… Nothing to do

  488. willwill April 10th, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    That one bad night has sent him to the Binder Doghouse Gotta love that 0.00 ERA

  489. chicken_stanley April 10th, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    But when his velocity went down to ST Pineda, 90/91, he was getting smoked.

    —————-

    um… I didn’t see pineda get smoked at all tonight. maybe I’m missing something

  490. SweetSpot April 10th, 2014 at 9:49 pm

    Pineda went 6.2 innings and threw 94 pitches building up his pitch count. 4 hits – 1 run – 7 strike outs. He was outstanding and his velocity was excellent. His heater, slider and change were all working for him tonight. I have no criticism of his performance at all. Great job Pineda!

  491. jmv April 10th, 2014 at 9:49 pm

    I want Dellin!!!

    “In previous interviews Pineda has said he does not intentionally throw a cutter. His fastball just has natural movement. And I’m sure he gets into some trouble with his grip/mechanics.”

    It’s really interesting though because usually when pitchers get that unwanted cut movement it causes problems…..(CC)…..he seems to kinda be able to still hit a spot with the ball cutting…..I didn’t see a lot of that action in Toronto and his velocity was better…..it was better than ST tonight but not as good as last time out…..

    But his slider was great as always…..and his CU was outstanding a few times…..

  493. jmills April 10th, 2014 at 9:49 pm

    Not criticism ….just discussion…..I think it’s interesting …..Pineda is really interesting to me for some reason …..he’s an unusual pitcher

  500. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    Let me say this. I don’t want it to have been pine tar on Pineda’s hand – and nobody has guaranteed me that it is – because I don’t want Yankee players cheating. That simple.

    You can all have a good laugh at my expense, but that’s how I feel about it.

  501. Tar April 10th, 2014 at 9:53 pm

    I want Pineda to hide it better next time. :D

    Its like 100% pinetar, and after it was noticed on his throwing hand he moved it to his glove side wrist. Everyone cheats in baseball. Especially pitchers.

    “Only Papi can get away with that.” John Smoltz of the selfie with Obama.

    That applies to many things. Steroids, throwing bats at umpires, cursing on national TV, etc.
    =========

    Red Sox ownership has a specially close relationship with Selig. Players are protected so long as they are with the Red Sox, Thats why Papi never left as a FA, he saw what happened to Manny. Wouldn’t be surprised if all positive test go to Selig directly for action, or no action. Players who he protects, those results likely go in a basket.

  510. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 10th, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    “Its like 100% pinetar, and after it was noticed on his throwing hand he moved it to his glove side wrist. Everyone cheats in baseball. Especially pitchers.”

    I find that really disappointing then. And your comment that everyone cheats in baseball is pure bunk. I expect so much more from you, and then to fall into one of those traps that I expect from, well, less rational posters. I think it’s insulting to players who play the game correctly and do not cheat, for you to say that everyone cheats in baseball.

    Most likely it was or maybe another substance. But apparently every pitcher does it. I don’t think to that extent. Like Kenny Rogers, Jon Lester, and Clay Buchholz have.

  512. 4TrainNorth April 10th, 2014 at 9:58 pm

  513. chicken_stanley April 10th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    ——————–

    There was a point early in the game (probably 2nd inning or so) the you could clearly see Buttholz go to his left forearm to load up on something… I didn’t post about it a the time because, frankly, I didn’t care.

  514. blake April 10th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    That’s not a strike but we shall take it!

  515. Jerkface April 10th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    I think it’s insulting to players who play the game correctly and do not cheat, for you to say that everyone cheats in baseball.

    Find one pitcher in baseball that denies using something to grip the ball. Cone said on the broadcast everyone uses it. Dirk Hayhirst said it was his job in the Toronto BP to make sure they had a bag full of stuff to use. Thats why a lot of pitchers have weird spots on their hat.

    Instead of everyone, just think of the majority.

  516. pete2 April 10th, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    God bless you pete2. I never thought I’d hear anyone else acknowledge that relationship and why Ortiz likely still drinks milkshakes with impunity! Everyone knows about the sham steroid investigation at fenway, but it’s church mouse time when it comes to even going near discussion of the obvious (to me anyway) implications.

    Though it could be that some posters aren’t bothered by juicing so they naturally wouldn’t be bothered by Ortiz or other Suxers doing it, or by them being protected by Selig.
