MLB Investigating ESPN For Misusing Yankees Dugout Camera After Pineda's Pine-Tar Ejection
Published April 24, 2014
BLAME GAME: In N.Y., Bob Raissman writes ESPN "actually decided it was a fabulous idea to drill down on Pineda’s pine-tar past -- quickly." The net during the first inning "aired a segment on Pineda’s problems gripping the ball." Then the cameras "started focusing on his hands." ESPN "made the pine-tar thing an issue." It was not until Red Sox manager John Farrell "came out to make an issue of the pine tar" that YES Network's Michael Kay, David Cone and Al Leiter were "forced to get into it." However, YES also "spent far too much time making Pineda the total fall guy." Raissman: "For the amount of time YES focused on Girardi in the dugout, why was his role in this embarrassing mess not explored?" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/24).
