Joel Pineiro stuff

Over at THT, I took a quick look at how Pineiro was able to be so successful this year. In short, he's basically halved his slider and changeup usage in lieu of a sinker, while throwing about 3% more pitches in the strikezone, all of which have been in the lower third. He's also been getting a little lucky in terms of squeezes. Those factors have allowed him to give up more contact than last year, with most of it being on the ground, which manifests itself in a much lower walk and strikeout rate.
