Looked rejuvenated, best he's looked at the plate in 2-3 years. Little surprised how bad Hafner's looked lately. Healthy Hafner is still a reasonably productive player but he's looked quite bad lately. 4 home runs since April 27, a span of 113 at bats. Oh how I miss Raul Ibanez.
We could see Pineda back soon. He's made 1 rehab start in minors and apparently impressed.
Wells is a black hole at this point in the lineup, was annoyed tonight he let Ichiro hit for Neal who had a single and walk tonight in his first game, Ichiro is terrible. Wells and Ichiro are replacement level players at this point.
I'm not sure I blame Cashman for either move, Ichiro seems like it was definitely an ownership move to try and sell 3000 hit merch, really don't think Cash would have taken Wells either.
I hope we get to see Pineda in a few weeks, he is a week into his 30 day rehab stint.
