The First Joel

Although it was disappointing to hear him serve up homeruns to Juan Uribe and Jermaine Dye, nevertheless Joel Pineiro impressed me this evening. In particular, while he was tiring and after giving up the Dye shot followed by Aaron Rowand's triple, Joel managed to record two outs before surrendering the runner at third base.

All this with fewer than 100 pitches. Should his shoulder be healthy, I think that Pineiro could be an important piece of M's success sooner rather than later.

Now if someone could explain how Jon Garland no-hit us for six innings....
