More Pineda pine tar

It seems that Michael Pineda didn't learn his lesson from a few weeks ago, and because he had more pine tar smeared all over his neck on Wednesday night at Fenway Park, the Red Sox, and the umps, had no choice but to do something about it

Let me repeat that. ALL OVER HIS NECK.

It was just two weeks ago that we had this same conversation: Pineda was caught with pine tar smeared all over his throwing hand in a game against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

On Wednesday night, Pineda had more pine tar showing. He just plastered it onto a different part of his body.

And once again, the issue here isn't that he was using pine tar. It was that he, once again, was too obvious and blatant about it. And just as Yankees GM Brian Cashman said after the game, the Red Sox had no choice but to call him out during the game.

So John Farrell told the home plate umpire, and Pineda was ejected on the spot.

I opened Thursday's show with my reaction to another Pineda pine tar incident.

Also on Thursday's show, NHL.com's Matt Kalman joined me to discuss the Boston Bruins' series with the Detroit Red Wings.

And I closed out the show discussing the NFL schedule and an MLB instant replay issue that you need to hear to believe.
