A Red Sox fan offers Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda some advice

By Jim Monaghan

The last time we saw New York Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda was back in April, standing on the mound at Fenway Park as the home plate umpire was inspecting him for a suspicious-looking substance on his neck which, of course, turned out to be pine tar.

Pineda was immediately thrown out of the game and pine tar – and its use by pitchers – became a big topic for awhile.

Pineda is starting for the Yankees tonight in Baltimore and in the spirit of “can’t we all just get along?” I have put together some helpful hints for him tonight.
