The problem is that in the end it will end up costing the team money. Who's going to replace Pineda in the rotation? Andy, who cost the Yankees another 2.5$ mill to sign. Who's going to replace him next season? Another free agent signing. It's going to hurt them $$ wise it's just not as obvious.
On the bright side Noesi is doing TERRIBLE for the Mariners, so you take can solace in that.
He had 2 bad starts out of 4, one of them against the Rangers. He has had more good games than Buchholz. You can't judge a player by what he has done in April.
Pujols stinks too, and Pedroia in April of 2007 had people saying he would never be anything more than a AAAA player.
The good news is Schilling says Pineda can come back in 10 months throwing 5 mph faster like he did.
