Another one in the W column. Joel Pineiro had a respectable outing last night. His last three starts have been good - so perhaps he has indeed turned the corner.
Ichiro! showed one facet of his game last night that I wish he would concentrate more on. Running on Terrence Long (which is ironic, since Terrence Long is the first guy that Ichiro! gunned down at 3rd base in his ROY season) was a great move. Ichiro! has the ability to create havoc on the basepaths, much in the same way that Rickey Henderson and Kenny Lofton literally took charge whenever they got on base.
