New York Yankees starter Michael Pineda, who was slathered in pine tar in his last start against the Sox, was up to his old tricks again Wednesday night. However, this time he was busted pine-handed. Or pine-necked.
After Red Sox manager John Farrell asked the umps to check Pine-aid-a for a foreign substance, the Yankees right-hander was promptly tossed and faces a 10-game suspension.
You stay classy, New York.
Of course the entire sticky situation caused a twitstorm over on Twitter:

Michael Pineda had pine tar on his neck. He's a terrible person and a cheater. Ban him for life. The whole era is an asterisk.

Introducing, Pine-Aida. It's the pine tar that lasts only four innings. pic.twitter.com/cU4ckGjXQ4 (via @jimmysjargon)
