Pineda ‘beyond excited’ to be a Yankee

The Yankees media relations department just sent out a quote from the newest Bombers pitcher, Michael Pineda, as the four-player deal with the Seattle Mariners was officially announced today:

“I’m feeling great and I’m beyond excited,” Pineda said. “I never thought I would become a New York Yankee so early into my career. This is the best thing in the world. Pitching alongside CC Sabathia, I’m speechless. And playing alongside players such as Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter is unbelievable.”

Yankees GM Brian Cashman is on a conference call with reporters right now in which he said that Jesus Montero “may very well be the best player I’ve traded, and I’ve been doing this for a long time.” More information to follow on


Just work on that change!!!


I like his attitude. I was concerned we’d see a statement saying something like; “I am happy to be pitching in New York. Obviously I liked Seattle a lot and I was comfortable there. However I am excited to begin the next chapter of my career.”

-None of that stuff. Good to see some emotion


Well I am glad to see that he is happy to come to NY and he seems to be a good kid:D Im looking forward to seeing him pitch
