  • Is Joel Piñeiro morphing into Jason Marquis?

    WAITING ON PINEIRO

    La Russa acknowledged his desire for Tuesday's losing pitcher, Joel Pineiro, to push deeper into starts, especially when handed leads.

    Pineiro is averaging less than six innings in eight starts and has failed to close the sixth in any of four starts this month.

    Tuesday, Pineiro mishandled a 2-0 lead by allowing a sixth-inning, three-run homer to Padres third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff.

    Kouzmanoff's blast followed two walks and was the difference in the Padres' 3-2 win. In his previous start, Pineiro was lifted after letting a 5-1 lead shrink to 5-4 during a complicated fifth inning. At 2-3, Pineiro is the only Cardinals starter with a losing record.

    "The other day, it's 5-4. That leaves 12 outs for the bullpen," La Russa said. "I read his comment (from Tuesday night) about one bad pitch. Well, I didn't think that was accurate. I look at the fourth. Well, he escapes trouble and then there's the fifth.

    "I think part of it is for him to really examine his outings. He's shown he's good enough. You can't have a better example than his (one-out) strikeout of (first baseman Adrian) Gonzalez, then giving up a three-run homer. He had an open base. He didn't have to do that.

    "He just needs to examine what he's doing right and where he can get better."
    Looper does just enough to win and Piñeiro seems to do just enough to lose...maddening

    Tony has a pretty quick hook with him.

    I think its because he looks like Brad from the Real World San Diego.

      Pineiro would have been a lot better off if he could have a few of those three run innings like Looper got last night.

            I am a bit of a pop culturist. I find it my duty to keep up with some trivial nonsense.

            You never know, I could be stuck on an elevator with Chuck Klosterman or The Sports Guy. What would I talk about?

                I really like both of those writers. I just finished reading Klosterman's latest the other day. The Sports Guy has gotten pretty annoying with the dominance of the Boston teams, but he's still brings the funny.

                  INcredible similarities (see GDOT thread ).

                  but really seems they don't like how he 'thinks' about pitching, or at least they would like him to self-flagellate more after losses (ala, Izzy)

                      Of course you do.
