Call to the Pen: Why Pineda (Probably) Isn't the Answer for the Yankees
Many people seem to think Michael Pineda and Jesus Montero are saviors for their respective new rotation and lineup. I think expectations need to be tempered, especially in Pineda's case, for a variety of reasons. He'll have a tough time succeeding in New York, but he has the talent to do so. It'll require him to refine his pitching style, though, and I think people expecting him to repeat his 2011 performance immediately are likely to be disappointed. Find out why at Call to the Pen.
