PinedaMichael Pineda says he will not appeal his 10-game suspension.

With an off day coming up, the Yankees should only need to fill his spot in the rotation once before he’s eligible to be activated again.

    this likely works out better than appealing to move it back. the offday comes at the perfect time.

    12 pitchers, 12 players.

    Are you smarter than a third grader?? Unfortunately, a few here are NOT.

    The irony! LMAO :lol:

    Gardner ..19 K’s..18 hits & 2 SB’s…nice job

  5. Ys Guy April 24th, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    a rainout next friday would be nice, too….

    Those who say that PEDs harm the body and can kill you really don’t know anything about PEDs.

    This isn’t the 70s anymore. Medical technology has advanced a tad since Lyle Alzado abused them.

    “I don’t use pine tar,” Pineda insisted. “It’s dirt. I’m sweating on my hand too much in-between innings.”

    ————-

    Sure Mike suuuurreee :roll: For those believing anything Pineda wants to say now, he does have the capability of lying. Exhibit A, above!

    Y’s guy – it doesn’t surprise me that you missed a 3rd grade study. Doesn’t surprise me at all.

    Until IGT…

  10. mick April 24th, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    Pineda said he wont use pine tar again. “I don’t want it to happen again,” he said.
    ===========================
    Won’t that make him a less effective pitcher.

    He must use again, is he crazy?

    You need to get past the ‘drug’ aspect and look at the performance enhancing aspect. There will always be people who argue against drugs because of the health risks, fine, I disagree but thats whatever.

    What I am trying to get to the heart to is the performance enhancing aspect of it. IF you are one of those people who cares about ‘pure’ numbers or whether guys are doing it naturally or not then you need to recognize the impact that this pitcher grip stuff has on the game.

  12. CountryClub April 24th, 2014 at 4:08 pm

    Buster Olney ?@Buster_ESPN 1m
    In Max Scherzer’s first five starts of this crucial season: 2.45 ERA, 44 strikeouts, 8 walks, in 33 innings.

  13. Ys Guy April 24th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    ok then shoelaces are performance enhancing, too.

    see how i got past the drug part?

  14. Patrick April 24th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    Bobby Abreu started for the Mets in RF today and hit a double.

    Kyle Farnsworth closed out the win for them last night.

    Daisuke Matsuzaka is closing the game for them this afternoon.

    Mets.

  15. CountryClub April 24th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    Scherzer will be 30 in July. He’s going to want a 7 or 8 year deal. I think I would pass.

  16. joeman April 24th, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    MC’s stats will for sure get better

  17. Ys Guy April 24th, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    pine tar is equipment, not a drug.

    it’s illegal to use it in the way he used it. he’s going to pay the penalty.

    i really couldn’t care, you’re the ones making it ‘cheating’ and a drug.

    to me it’s an equipment violation.

  18. bigdan22 April 24th, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    So Solarte is the back up SS. I wonder if this means Ryan is close.

    I’ve talked a bit about how bullpen fail is much more likely to be fatal than infield defense fail. That’s because bullpen fail generally occurs when the game is on the line and infield defense fail can occur anytime and in such a way that it’s harm can be negated. But if a key error is made in the 8th or 9th inning that may not be the case.

    Once Ryan comes on board, under no circumstances should Jeter be playing SS in the 8th and 9th inning of a close game. This should be a real test for Girardi and the FO. Do they have the guts to put winning first?

  19. Patrick April 24th, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    ok then shoelaces are performance enhancing, too.

    Yep, so are shoes, and clothing, and food, and air.

    The point is that defining what constitutes a performance enhancer that is AGAINST the rules is incredibly subjective. Why is pine tar on a baseball illegal but on a bat it’s ok? Why can I take protein supplements to build muscle but not steroids? Why is it ok to sit in a hyperbaric chamber to heal faster but I can’t take HGH to heal faster?

  20. J. Alfred Prufrock April 24th, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    Stretch Deal out.
    Lot cheaper and younger than Scherzer :)

  21. Rule 9 April 24th, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    Those who say that PEDs harm

    Do you not realize that a PED like steroids contributes to depression and other mental illnesses? Unless you don’t consider the mind to be a part of the body.

  22. CountryClub April 24th, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    During the game, Girardi “pushed” a remote ESPN camera that was filming Pineda in the tunnel while he was talking to pitching coaching Larry Rothschild and trainer Steve Donohue. The video is above. According to Erik Boland and George King, the Yankees formally protested to MLB because the camera was snooping around in what was supposed to be a private area. The league is investigating.

    “Gardner ..19 K’s..18 hits & 2 SB’s…nice job”

    ——

    It’s Gardner’s SOs that are the problem. He struck out over 120 times last year and hit eight home runs. And he got a big extension.

    Gardner has actually been a pretty consistent player. His defense is super valuable. I really like him at the plate in the clutch. But he needs to get his SOs below 100. That’s got to stop.

  24. Russell Munson April 24th, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Gardner’s a finished product. How many 30 year old players change their style?

  25. Ys Guy April 24th, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    turning this into a ped discussion is just dumb. its not a ped, its just not.

    its equipment. this is much more akin to an OF using a mitt that’s too big or pine tar past the allowed spot on the bat.

    i have no problem with the rule or the penalty he’s going to pay.

  26. blake April 24th, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    “You need to get past the ‘drug’ aspect and look at the performance enhancing aspect. There will always be people who argue against drugs because of the health risks, fine, I disagree but thats whatever.”

    I see line tar more as a performance enabler than an enhancer…..like Batting gloves

  27. Patrick April 24th, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Yankees formally protested to MLB because the camera was snooping around in what was supposed to be a private area. The league is investigating.

    ESPN has been doing this for years, nothing will come of it. Actually I recall SJ44 a few years ago saying that it’s against the rules for ESPN to film down the tunnel and that the Yankees should protest it. SJ44 was ahead of the curve!

  28. tomingeorgia April 24th, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Bring back slippery elm.

  29. Rule 9 April 24th, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Gardner is intent upon swinging for the fences in a percentage of his plate appearances. He could stick with being a contact hitter and his strikeouts would drop, but we all know that won’t happen.

  30. blake April 24th, 2014 at 4:19 pm

    “Once Ryan comes on board, under no circumstances should Jeter be playing SS in the 8th and 9th inning of a close game. This should be a real test for Girardi and the FO. Do they have the guts to put winning first?”

    Only it you’re ahead of course…..if you’re behind you don’t want ryan hitting ever

  31. CountryClub April 24th, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    Obv not surprisign, but they moved Nova to the 60 day DL too.

  32. Ys Guy April 24th, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    agreed about using ryan as a defensive replacement. i was wondering about this alot in ST but the injury to ryan put it out of mind.

    both to save what jeter has left and to protect the lead, ryan should be used in this manner.

  33. michaellord6 April 24th, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    Hypothetical:

    Game 7 of the World Series. Yankees lead 3-2 heading to the bottom of the 9th inning. Who do you want at SS?

  34. michaellord6 April 24th, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    I want Jeter.

  35. blake April 24th, 2014 at 4:29 pm

    Hypothetical:

    Game 7 of the World Series. Yankees lead 3-2 heading to the bottom of the 9th inning. Who do you want at SS?”

    Jeter of course

  36. michaellord6 April 24th, 2014 at 4:30 pm

    Say the Yankees start putting in Ryan as a defensive replacement in the 9th or 8th when the Yankees are up… if they Yankees make the playoffs, do they continue to take out Jeter?

  37. jackamir April 24th, 2014 at 4:37 pm

    For years I have been lambasted when I proclaim how overrated Gardner is. He is average at best—A 4th OF, maybe a useful tool off the bench….His production is minimal and he has awful judgement and instincts….

    :shock:

    Any prescription drugs can kill you.

    There aren’t even studies for long term effects of taking steroids because it’s considered unethical for doctors to prescribe steroids in really high dosages.
