  • No mid season change.

  • The key word here is "illegal". Why do they let go "illegal" activities for so long? Just use the Rosin bag, as everyone should be on an equal platform. I guess over the years MLB treated pitchers' "illegal" actions in the same way the left views the "illegal" immigrant

  • It's only a problem because the owners and people in power don't like what they're seeing when it comes to the bottom line.

  • Buster doesn’t get it. The foreign substances he mentioned are used to enhance grip and thus control over the baseball. These new foreign substances are specially made to enhance the spin rate of the ball giving pitchers more control and more breaking action on their pitches.

    • @Naquan Dixon cheaters hitting home runs on illegal, banned drugs. Read the rule book. No need to go any further. It's like running a red light on purpose. Like shooting yourself up with drugs before an event. It is not only cheating but illegal by law in some cases. Who says it is popular when you have to pay $25 for a parking spot, $4-5 bucks for a 10 cent bottle of water. Players cheating making 100+ million dollars. You pay, I don't no longer.

    • So when you are keeping a score book do you note: That 2-2 pitch was out of this world. Batter swung and missed by a mile. Chalk another one up with the Pelican Grip Dip sticky stuff. Cole had 108 pitches with 67 of them doctoring the baseball.

  • This was supposed to end years ago when Gaylord Perry was pitching. He was sort of grandfathered in. Now to our surprise after all of this using performance enhancing drugs they are caught again cheating. I guess it's really not a surprise. Million dollar players and need to cheat to make more money. Sure we saw players here and there being caught with sandpaper and other things on the underside of the hat which they touched to cheat on the next pitch. Now we find out most players are just outright cheating and have zero conscious. I am 75% out of sports watching this past decade. So the Astros stole signs which every time does from the coaching boxes, bases (on 2nd base) and dugout since they played Baseball. If you are stealing signs one way or another it turns out the same. You stole them, period. When there is something in life to be won humans will steal, cheat or whatever to get it. Life.

  • Expect Gerrit Cole to return to an ordinary pitcher sporting a 4.25 ERA. Once again, GM Brian Cashman got fleeced by cheaters (Cole, A-Rod).

  • These pitchers better be careful Cos this could affect some people's HOF cases

    • When you are making 200+ million you think they even care. Cheat and make more money. Pete Rose bet on sports and never cheated on his 4000+ hits. So he is banned while players are outright cheating on most every pitch. I say caught once you fined $50 grand and out one or two starts. Caught twice you out 30-60 days and forfeit your right to enter the HOF. Plus all the time out you do not get your 4 million a month you out.

    • deGrom is a unique case of a shortstop with a rocket arm converted late in his career to a pitcher. Time will tell if his stats take a turn, but I don't see it happening. He is that far above the rest in velocity, location, the drive and smarts.

      David ADavid A8 өдрийн өмнө
    • The reason why pitchers use substance is to increase spin rate but DeGrom spin rate is not that insane. His spin rate is like 77th out of all pitchers. What make DeGrom special is his fastball! He pitches 75% of his fastball and average 100 mph. Plus substance doesn't increase speed, so he's not cheating. COMMON SENSE!
