He's one the best pitchers in baseball and arguably the best closer in history. He just spit on the ground and it happened to go near the ball.
With all the cameras, players, and coaches watching him every pitch, do you really think he would try and cheat (like that anyways) with all eyes on him in a playoff game?
He doesn't need to and wasn't. Even the Angel's players and coaches said this is ridiculous. He's the last pitcher in baseball that needs to doctor the ball.
Exactly. Well said. The guy is the greatest relief pitcher ever and he is not going to tarnish that in such a stupid way.
Barry Bonds, Roger Clements, and Mark McGuire agree. Along with Sammy Sosa, Manny, Big papi, and on, and on...
Not that I think or care about the so called cheating.
