This new rule is just stupid. Offense is down and the Commissioner panics.

Girardi is such a fraud. That guy is an empty windbreaker. He tried to troll Scherzer and got owned.

MLB players are such tit bags, I can hardly watch it.

Right before I walked out on the field I'd make sure the umpires were looking and I'd jam both hands down the front of my pants. Let 'em get a feel of my hands after that!

It's not the umpire's fault. This is all coming down from the moron MLB put in charge. And make no mistake, Rob Manfred is dumber than a bag of hammers.

For those who have not been following this - MLB had been looking the other way for years on this issue, allowing pitchers to use a combination of pine tar, sunscreen and rosin to improve grip. The game changer is "Spider Tack". I read an article with the guy who invented it for use in Strongman competitions - specifically for the "Atlas Stone" event. Then he started getting orders from baseball players and teams were ordering with it sent directly to their clubhouses. Spin rates went up dramatically. Across the league hitters hit about .270 on 4 seam fastballs with a spin rate of around 2,250, but batting averages are only .217 with spin rates of 2,500+. The crackdown is comical but I'll bet batting averages will go up.

Discussion on the radio this morning was predicting managers using this as a way to throw pitchers off rhythm. Calling for a substance check in the same way the nba uses TO's to cool off the other team. The more intriguing part was asking if the team wanting the substance check should be penalized if nothing is found. Same way you lose a TO in the nfl if a challenge is lost.

and the hitters are juiced up, with whatever they can get by with "under the radar" steroids, deer velvet/antlers/or something, corked/modified bats, etc. And then there are buzzers, and trash cans, Hehehe
Who knows or cares what else.

I Quit caring about that MLB circus years ago. Funny video though.

Yeah, more than any other major sport baseball has always - and will always - have guys bending the rules to get an edge. As an avid baseball fan I'm really interested to see how much this ban on sticky substances changes the game over the next few months. There are very likely pitchers who don't have the stuff to be in the majors at all without Spider Tack - it makes that big of a difference. Without it, even the best slider pitchers in history don't get the RPMs that these guys are getting on a 4 seamer.
