BASEBALL: We Likes 'Em Broken Down

Boy, if LaRussa and Dave Duncan can turn Joel Pineiro back into a usable starting pitcher, they really do have the touch with washed-up veterans. Going into today's start, so far, so good.

I never understood what happened to Pineiro. He and Meche looked to be the future of the franchise. They both struggled in the M's system. Maybe the problem is in Seattle. They both seem to be fine now.

The book is out on Piniero. He was basically up and down in Boston and toward the end more down than up. He has stuff but it fails him at times. Of course there is nothing like a healthy dose of the National League to help cure what ails you. Of course that didn't mean squat for Zito so who knows?
