      Well said.

      But keep in mind that
      he is from New York.

      So when you tell him that Boston is in 'New England' he's probably thinking it's a suburb of London.* -

          He's not booed because he signed with another team.
          He's booed because he signed with the New York Yankees.

            Um, missed the "in my lifetime" part?*
            Don't worry. I understand reading's "not your thing." Being from Boston and all... :clown:

            And RaysFan_98, c'mon man! This is not your first day. Jesus would get boo'd in Boston if he played for the Yankees.

                  It was SO obvious.

                  Finally a manager asked an umpire to check him for the pine tar on his neck was long over due...

                  • Well, it's an automatic 10-game suspension (for something that is done routinely throughout MLB). That said, most MLB pitchers have more craftiness. Jeez man, why don't you take a full page "I'M USING PINE TAR!" ad out in the TIMES. It'd be more subtle than a glop of tar on your neck! Idiot.

                      Well, it seems that common sense, (or even a semi-logical mindset), is a skill that's not required to become a Yankee. {Another piece of the puzzle?}

                        I can say with confidence that Red Sox pitchers use pine tar in cold weather too. It's that common and you know it. :stare: The problem here is sheer stupidity. h C'mon man! The Sox and the umpire let you go last time and your "fix" was to put the pine tar in a place of HIGHER visibility!?! Anyway, according to "my sources" <glaces around in a "shifty" way>, the best place to put the tar is on your glove hand right underneath the heal. What a dumb***. Just ask somebody rook!

                          Where was the Yankees pitching coach when all of this was going on? Was he too busy eating a few Fenway Franks and washing them down with a Sam Adams?

                          Pineda struggled in the 1st inning and gave up some runs. Shouldn't you grab him when he returns to the dugout and sit him down and discuss why he was having problems gripping the baseball? No, let him wander around until he spots the stash of pine tar, and grabs a hunk to lather his neck with it. Nobody noticed him leaving the dugout to pitch the 2nd inning looking like a Dominican Harry Potter...McCann, Girardi, Jeter, and not even his pitching coach! If it was someone else's idea then why the neck rather than someplace less noticeable. I didn't see him once touch his neck.

                          At least he didn't walk out to the mound with a syringe hanging from his butt.

                          • It's not that we didn't know the Yankees liked to cheat but to be so obvious he was asking to get tossed. Brings me back memories of the Jeter Oscar award winning performance a few years ago.
