    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.

                      Yeah, it's just the Yankees [see Jon Lester in Game 1 of the 2013 World Series]. roof:

                      Also, I never complained about this. Mostly because he used it when he pitched for us! Further, anyone who pitched college ball in the Northern U.S. (season starts in March) has used pine tar to keep a grip on the ball. Myself included. :stare: [Please note that, unlike <ah-hem> Vaseline, pine tar does not alter the flight of the ball.]

                      The real thing here is he was so blatant. It's disrespectful to the Red Sox, an affront to the umpire, and an embarrassment to the Yankees.

                      • Both teams come out of this series licking their wounds. My only excuse for the poor fielding by the Red Sox is the cold weather.

                              It's a small Midwestern school but I've heard of it. I won't knock Yankees pitching on this thread.

                              I see Paul O'Neill's nephew is in the Yankees organization now. He has some speed according to your school's website.. They better buy a few more sturdy water coolers.

                              • Pine tar does more than just provide grip. Better grip gives pitches more bite and movement. It's not erratic movement like greasing a ball. But pine tar enhances performance. The thing is MLB hitters would rather the pitcher have better bite on his movement than take a poorly gripped pitch in the ribs in cold weather.

                                Pinieda has a reputation for being intellectually several notches below rocket scientist. To be more pointed he's not the sharpest tool in the shed. All he had to do was put the pine tar in the palm of his glove glove hand or under his visor.
