BOSTON -- Michael Pineda says he was just trying to get a better grip on the ball. Custom Real Madrid Jerseys . Now, he wont need one for a while. A day after being caught using pine tar on the mound, the New York Yankees pitcher was suspended for 10 games by the commissioners office on Thursday. Pineda said he wont appeal, costing him two starts before he can return May 5 at the Los Angeles Angels. "I accept it," Pineda said before Thursday nights game at Fenway Park. "I know I made a mistake." Pineda was ejected in the second inning of New Yorks 5-1 loss to Boston after umpires found the pine tar on the right side of the right-handers neck. After the game, Pineda admitted that he used the pine tar to help him grip the ball on a cool, windy night. "I feel so bad," he said Thursday. Pineda said he had never used pine tar before this season. He spent his first season in the majors with the Seattle Mariners in 2011, then missed the last two with the Yankees following right shoulder surgery. "I think he understood" the seriousness of his action, said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who expected a suspension of about 10 games, "but I think he got caught up in the moment of competing and it got the best of him." Girardi indicated David Phelps would take Pinedas turn in the rotation. Phelps came into the game with two outs in the second after Pineda was ejected. The ejection set off a debate in the baseball world about pitchers who try pine tar, and whether it should be allowed in certain circumstances. Many former aces said they had done it, albeit in a more discreet manner. "Ive seen a lot of things in my career, so Im not blind to it" being viewed as part of baseball, said Girardi, a former catcher in his seventh year as Yankees manager. Rule 8.02(b) prohibits pitchers from altering the ball to gain an unfair advantage, and forbids them from having a foreign substance on them or in their possession on the mound. "I wouldnt be against coming up with an idea" to modify the rule so pitchers could get a better grip on the ball in cold weather, Girardi said. "It would be a great time for someone to start looking at" finding one substance pitchers would be allowed to use. Pineda wasnt seen with the pine tar in the first inning, when the Red Sox roughed him up. Boston manager John Farrell asked plate umpire Gerry Davis to check Pineda after two fast outs the next inning. "I felt like it was a necessity to say something," Farrell said. "You know, I fully respect on a cold night youre trying to get a little bit of a grip. But when its that obvious, something has got to be said." Davis went to the mound, touched Pinedas neck and ejected him. Pineda said no one told him to use it, that he did it "by myself." Earlier this month, Pineda pitched well in a 4-1 win over the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium. Television cameras showed a substance on his hand in the fourth inning -- Pineda said it was dirt, not pine tar. His hand was clean in the fifth and Farrell didnt ask for him to be checked. Pineda said he didnt use pine tar in a start against the Chicago Cubs, in between his Red Sox outings. Among other suspensions of pitchers for pine tar in the past decade, Tampa Bays Joel Peralta was penalized eight games in 2012, the Angels Brendan Donnelly 10 days in 2005 and St. Louis Julian Tavarez 10 days in 2004. The suspensions of Donnelly and Tavarez were cut to eight days after they asked the players association to appeal, and Peralta dropped his challenge with no reduction. Pineda said Thursday he didnt feel the ball well in the first inning when he allowed two runs on four hits. And he said he wanted to be careful not to hit any batters. "I know its pine tar, but the pine tar did not help me" throw harder, he said. "It helped me for feel, (get) a better grip." Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski understood why Pineda used the pine tar. "I dont have a problem with guys that do it," he said. "I know as a hitter, I want to get in there and know the guy has a grip. "Put it on your hat, put it on your pants, your belt, put it on your glove, whatever you have to do. You just cant do it that blatantly. That was what the biggest issue was. No one has an issue with him doing it. Its just more of the fact that its so blatant." Jesus Vallejo Real Madrid Jersey .

Lucas Vazquez Real Madrid Jersey .Y. -- The New York Islanders were seeking a positive finish to a frustrating season on home ice. http://www.realmadridfcprohop.us/Luka-M ... id-Jersey/ . -- Blake Griffin scored 32 points and grabbed eight rebounds, DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 22 rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers outlasted the Golden State Warriors 98-96 on Thursday night to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round series.As surprised as he was by Daniel Alfredsson leaving the Ottawa Senators, Jason Spezza talked with the former captain enough to not be shocked. "I could understand some of his reasoning and wish him the best," Spezza said. But understanding is different than figuring out how to replace what Alfredsson brought the Senators, most notably the unquestioned leadership that came from his 17 seasons in Ottawa. Spezza would welcome the captaincy in Alfredssons absence, and the 30-year-old centre doesnt believe he has to alter much in order to assume that responsibility. "I think for me, leaderships something that comes naturally," Spezza said at last weeks NHL player media tour in Newark, N.J. "I think Ive had a big say in whats gone on in our room over the last few years, so it wont change much in how I approach the team. "Obviously itd be a huge honour. But to this point weve had a great group and we have some guys that have been there for a long time and weve always kind of led as a group, even with Alfie there. So I imagine it would be the same way with whoevers wearing the C." Spezza has played 611 games for the Senators dating to 2002-03, a tenure only surpassed by 1996 No. 1 pick Chris Phillips (1,073 games dating to 1997-98) and Chris Neil (779 games dating to 2001-02). Phillips long-standing presence on defence makes him the other reasonable choice to succeed Alfredsson as captain. But Spezza, given his star power and how much he wants to lead the post-Alfredsson era, seems to be the natural fit. "I think theres a lot of leaders in Ottawa," centre Jean-Gabriel Pageau said Saturday during a rookie tournament in London. "Spezza being there for a couple of years now, I think he has good potential to be a good leader. Hes real nice with everyone, and every time hes on the ice he give everything he has." Back and knee injuries limited Spezza to just five regular-season and three playoff games last season, and he concedes not being invited to Canadas Olympic orientation camp "gives me a little chip on my shoulder." "Im pretty motivated just by not playing last year," he said. "I want to have a good year. Ive prepared myself to havve a good year. Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Jersey. " The Senators are counting on that in the wake of Alfredsson signing a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings, now an Atlantic Division rival. Spezza returning to the form that included 84 points in 2011-12 would be a nice step toward being back in the playoffs. For Spezza to do that and perhaps assume the captaincy, former Ottawa assistant Luke Richardson believes consistency needs to be the priority. "Theres areas of the game as a leader and you want to be a leader every night," said Richardson, a former teammate of Spezzas who now coaches the AHLs Binghamton Senators. "You cant put the risk in at the neutral zone and at the blue line when youre maybe creating two chances but youre giving them two chances. So I think thats the part of the game that has gotten way better, and hopefully it continues to get better, and thatll be a good judge on whether hes the leader of this team." Richardson, who spent three seasons on the staff in Ottawa, senses Spezzas desire to be captain. "I think I really see that he wants to be the leader, he wants to pass on some of the things that he learns to the other guys and help them get along," Richardson said. "Hes a guy that over the last few years has really grown as a person and hes matured. Hes been around the league a long time, hes had some rough times, hes had some real successful times, and hes learned from guys like Daniel Alfredsson and other veterans that have been in Ottawa the last few years." Veterans are hard to come by on a young Senators team that features 2011-12 Norris Trophy-winning defenceman Erik Karlsson and goaltender Craig Anderson, who helped keep Ottawa afloat last season amid a torrent of injuries. But Spezza already sounds like a man who wants to prove the Senators can be better this season without Alfredsson. "We add a couple good players with Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan, Joe Corvo on defence, so I think possibly we have a chance to be a better team than we were last year," he said. "We look better on paper and we should be a better team, but now its our job to put it all together." Its a job that starts with Spezza.
