Multiple Teams Eyeing Joel Pineiro

Yahoo's Tim Brown tweets of six early suitors for free agent righty Joel Pineiro, who is perhaps now the best free agent starter available aside from John Lackey.  Brown names the Yankees, Mets, Nationals, Cubs, Orioles, and Angels as interested teams.  ESPN's Jayson Stark says Pineiro wants more than $10MM a year.

Pineiro had a fine 2009 season, using a sinker to get tons of groundballs and walking very few.  But while he's a couple years younger than Randy Wolf, I can't see Pineiro getting a four-year deal.  I think he'll be hard-pressed to get three.  And regarding the Cubs' interest, I'd be surprised if they found the cash.  The Yankees also seem unlikely.
