Pineiro (2-2, 4.97)         Baker (1-2, 3.47)

An anagram of "Scott Baker" is "to sack Bert," which is fitting, because Bert Blyleven deserves to be fired from his announcing gig on account of he sucks at it. Another anagram is "Bert sock at," which is also fitting, because I want someone to punch him in his stupid HoF-worthy face.

Joel Pineiro's name, meanwhile, isn't particularly conducive to wordplay, especially if you insist on including the tilded n. Which is probably good news for everyone involved, since we were headed for total anagram overkill for a second there.
