PINEDA IS BACK & JUST IN TIME
Quick note, and it's an important one, especially after that blowout last night. Michael Pineda is coming back and Chad Jennings of LoHud gives us alittle hope in his piece:
"The Yankees’ rotation returns to full strength today. In fact, this is probably the strongest the rotation has been all year.
With Michael Pineda ready to come off the disabled list, the Yankees have their five best starting pitchers in place. Had Ivan Nova not crumbled in the first inning last night, all five would have an ERA of 4.00 or lower.
Luis Severino is up from the minor leagues, Nathan Eovaldi is on a roll, and now Pineda joins Masahiro Tanaka as the team’s dominant-on-their-best-days headliners.
'We are fighting for the division right now,' Pineda said. 'So it’s very exciting to go back to the mound, and I’m very happy for that. … Everybody has responsibility here, and we’re here for playing and winning the game, you know?'”
Wow, Pineda sounds all mature and stuff... doesn't he?
It's true, when you step back and see what we have right now, we are in the drivers seat when it comes to our pitching. We do however need our offense to work with us and lately it seems like our bats aren't doing much. That needs to change if we want to make a successful run to the post season and beyond.
This is the time.
