Pineiro (3-7, 6.06)         Garcia (11-4, 3.76)

There's a pretty good chance that Felix Hernandez is, quite literally, twice the pitcher that Pineiro is at this point in time. While that's an indication of just how good Felix is, it's also a pretty damning statement of Pineiro's performance so far, and the worst part is that it didn't have to be like this. How much longer will they keep running Joel back out there until somebody realizes that there's something wrong and shuts him down? Have mercy.
