I don't buy Pineda's claim that he needs the stuff to get a good grip on the ball. No other pitchers on either team seemed to require a glistening splotch of goop to hit the strike zone. Pineda slathers the stuff on so copiously that I think he's using it to spur downward movement on his pitches. Henceforth, minus this crutch, he might look more like the pitcher of the first three innings last night than the stud of his previous starts.Adam Warren or David Phelps . . . get ready for your closeup.
Thank you Pineda for making it interesting again.Did he figure it's brown, I'm brown, who'll see it? When one of the Red Sox bullfrog/bryllcream/slimy hair types pitch, and it's in their greased up hair, how do you challenge that?
Check those redsock beards. There's probably more in there than yesterday's soup and the odd nesting sparrow.
