Pineda pleads no contest to terrible Yankee trade

Michael "the New Pavano" Pineda pleaded guilty today to for driving while intoxicated last year in Florida.

This caps a memorable 2012 for the Yankiverse's second-most vilified Venezuelan, after Hugo Chavez.

Pineda is recovering from shoulder surgery, which - for a power pitcher - is like a downhill skier coming back without a leg. He's throwing off flat surfaces now (above) and is expected to be pitching again by the All-Star break.

For the record, we wish him well.

Let's face it, we'd be drinking heavily, too.

Although, with his money, we'd be driven in a limo by a sober Beyoncé.
