Michael Pineda ejected after pine tar was found on his neck

After cameras caught Michael Pineda using an egregious amount of pine tar (or, according to Pineda, “dirt”) on his palm against the Red Sox earlier this month, he tried to pull the same schtick again on Wednesday night at Fenway.

PHOTO: Michael Pineda Ejected from Red Sox-Yankees Game for Pine Tar-Like Substance on Neck

Will Yankees SP Michael Pineda ever learn? Just two weeks ago, when the Red Sox and Yankees last faced off, he skated by after being spotted with a pine tar-like substance on his hand. The Red Sox didn’t make an issue about it, and they let it go. But Pineda wasn’t finished! During today’s Red […]

Tonight’s Yankees-Red Sox game will have a little extra juice to it. Not only because Masahiro Tanaka will make his first start at Fenway, but because Jacoby Ellsbury will make his return to the place he called home for seven years. He isn’t the first high-profile player to switch his red socks for pinstripes, and he wont be the last. Here’s a look back at some notable players...

Yankees: Team players do not pitch hurt

Ivan Nova (Photo credit: Keith Allison) As you already know, baseball is a team sport. The greatest teams are made up of players who keep their egos in check by setting aside personal desires, and living by the motto, whatever it takes to make the team better.
