Pineiro? 2 Mets? 2

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Joel Alberto Pineiro, a career .094 hitter, looked like the other Albert P. on his Cardinals team, using his bat to chalk up two hits.

The entire Mets team? Well, thanks to Jeremy Reed in the 9th, they had two hits, as well.

Forgetting the fact that Pineiro needed 100 pitches, got 21 ground ball outs, allowed 2 hits and gave up one walk - the 30 year old pitcher sent Omar Minaya a message tonight stating, "you need a big bat in your lineup."

Knowing Omar Minaya...he'll get a big bat for the team...

Kudos to Metstradamus for the picture.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Pineiro left his previous start early with cramps due to dehydration. He made up for the lost time tonight and left with his head held high.

Note to Omar: Get your Rolodex out.
