Michael Pineda is one of the hottest young prospects in baseball.  The Dominican pitcher for the Seattle Mariners was the subject of a Baseball Tonight segment featuring ESPN analyst Eduardo Perez.  Pineda is a possible Rookie of the Year candidate and Eduardo was attempting to talk about the 6’7″ Pineda standing on top of the 10 inch mound, and being an imposing 7’5″ presence.  Except, that didn’t quite happen very smoothly…

That was a very nice awkward pause involving Pineda’s “ten inch uhhh.”  Needless to say, I think this clip is much more memorable with the awkward silence and uncomfortable innuendo than the thousands of other forgettable Baseball Tonight segments that will run this year.  Don’t worry though, I’ll spare you more jokes about Pineda’s impressive tools or hard stuff.
