Looks like he will make the Mariners starting rotation for 2011. Thoughts on him for this season?

ive got him on most rosters. im expecting pretty much the same id expect from any rookie pitcher with ace potential. lots of inconsistency. some brilliant games, and some that you'd like to forget.

"Obviously, something was going on there with Pineda," Ryan said. "You’re not teeing off on a guy like that just coincidentally."

The Mariners’ coaches and catcher Olivo agreed that Pineda was inadvertently doing something to tip off the Boston hitters in advance of what he was about to throw.

"They were taking all the sliders and swinging at all the fastballs," Olivo said. "I went out to the mound and told him what I thought he was doing, and he changed it and it worked."

Worked for a while, anyway.

The Red Sox can hit fastballs as well as any team, and that has been Pineda’s primary weapon all season long. His changeup remains a work in progress, and the handful he threw were of no use against lefties in this one.

Pineda agreed that he was probably tipping pitches.

Interesting.
I speculated about this very topic in the Ding Dong thread last night:
bayside wrote:Pineda has been horrible for over a month now.
in his past 5 starts hes given up 4, 1, 7, 5, and 7 ER's.
Hes also given up 5 HR in those 5 starts after giving up just 6 all year before that.
wtf is wrong wth him?

Ive asked before but nobody really had anything to say... is he wearing down? or is the league adjusting to him? tipping pitches? hiding an injury?
something is not right because hes getting slapped around like jo jo reyes after being nearly unhittable for the first 2.5 months of the season

this could actally be great news... I was really starting to worry about him, and was praying an injury was not found
I hope that really is the problem and that they can review tape and fix it asap in bullpen sessions.

So he was tipping his pitches in the Boston game?
And what about the other games?
I'd say it's more likely he is wearing down combined with league is catching up.
139 IP last season, and he is at 124 IP this season.
I don't think that the Ms will push him over 160 IP with their season already over, and his schedule doesnt get any easier:
vs tam
@ ana (7 runs last time)
@ tex (obvious, but the 20 runs they scored on monday should be convincing)
vs tor (5 runs last time)
my fearless advice:
overall numbers still look good, so trade him while you can.
Before Evans has his article out on him that he should be traded. Than it's too late.
