Pineda's pine tar

Michael Pineda picked up his first win of the season on Thursday night in six strong innings against the Boston Red Sox, but the story of the game wasn't his nasty slider

The story was the obvious pine tar that was smeared all over the palm of Pineda's throwing hand and glistening for the cameras to see.

Key word: "obvious."

I gave my reaction to the use of pine tar on Friday's show. I also discussed what went right and what went wrong for Clay Buchholz in the loss to New York.

And while the Red Sox were wise to say all the right things regarding Pineda's pine tar, a story broke Friday morning that shows a few Boston players are complaining about something else. And that "something else" is PED's.
