    As a Mariners fan always loved Pineda. He's a workhorse Yankees fans should be happy.

    Nowhere near proven yet pitching in safeco in meaningless games

    He has the skill set but does he have the mental make up which is all so important in ny
    spoken like a true Red Sox Fan no need to be jealous.

    Nova is due for a statistical correction. I don't believe he allowed a homer last year with men on base. The Yankees will probably have to watch his and Pineda's innings this year. It's not like Kuroda is bad, but he's 37 so who knows what you'll get in the 2nd half. Their staff is plenty good to win them plenty of games in the regular season, he's right in that they need another horse or one of the young guys to step up for the playoffs.

    As a Mets fan...I would be happy with this. As long as A.J. doesn't have more than two years left on his contract.

    Pineda fell off the face of the Earth towards season end. Only throws two pitches, and played majority of games @Safeco.

    Even trade IMO. Typical Yankee fan overreation. Thinking they are smarter than everyone else, but realy they just spend significantly more money.

    I would only take A.J. if they moved the fences back to where they were before and further.

    Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said he has "no expectations" for Jesus Montero after the first baseman reported to camp 40 pounds over the weight the team wanted him to come in at.
    "It’s up to him," Zduriencik said. "I have zero expectations for Jesus Montero. Any expectations I had are gone." Zduriencik added that Montero has "a ton to prove," while manager Lloyd McClendon said the first baseman is "at a crossroads." Montero's future was already looking murky before this spring, as he's struggled since joining the M's, has been moved off of catcher and last year got popped with a 50-game suspension for his involvement with the Biogenesis scandal. He'll begin the season in the minors and obviously has a lot of ground to make up before he becomes relevant again.


    What a bust that trade has been

    weak armed ellsbury will cost the yankees about 1 run a game. worst hose in MLB. pitchers will silently complain and dissension will set in. worst free agent signing of the decade.

    Any reports on how his stuff looks in spring training?

    Probably a better chance of Pineda becoming a legitimate contributor than Montero at this point.

    Obviously it's been a huge bust thus far, as both of the guys have either sucked (Montero), been injured (Pineda), or suspended (Montero).
