Pineda gave Farrell and the Sox no choice. Very stupid decision on where to put it by Pineda.
That was an embarrassment, 3 errors was embarrassing,
After the previous Sox game, he said it was just dirt on his hand. I wish someone asked him last night why he lied the last time.
The general consensus is that it doesn't affect anything other than grip.
As for blatant, that is probably worse than Pineda. Wow. Now why the Yanks weren't paying attention, I have no idea.
Has anyone ever figured out if pine tar actually does anything to the spin of the ball, besides just helping the pitcher get a better grip ? If it doesn't,
Snapple just won this thread.
