Another Lefty-Lefty start for Girardi’s lineup and I fear this will be the top 2 guys for the majority of the year.
Pretty B-quad lineup today as Carter/Hicks/Romine/Torreyes all will be backups and Tejada/Wade in the minors
The big thing will be seeing how Pineda attacks and how consistent his focus is.
Two big issues last year were putting innings away/bad stretches behind him and giving up the long ball. He has great “stuff” and could really be a strong #2 behind Tanaka this year, if he dials in his mind.
