I'm no true detective, but it sure looks like New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda had a handful of something as he two-hit the Boston Red Sox for seven innings Thursday night in a 4-1 Yankees win.
You have to admire the guy for having the brass ones to be so blatant. Naturally, Pine-aid's pine tar performance caused a Twitstorm.

Michael Pineda has a foreign substance on his hand. It might be fudge. Or Maple Syrup. http://t.co/bwa6TW2F0M pic.twitter.com/RYnp96iNzU — christopher b. (@chrstphr_) April 11, 2014
One man's pine tar is another man's losing battle with teriyaki sauce. Right, Michael Pineda? #Yankees
