    Great now we have to listen to 6 months of Cardinals whining about this and the correction to the umpires call.

    Funny thing though as Kozma got the benefit of the infield fly last year and now he is getting torched with errors in WS game 1.

    If it gets them to the World Series every other year, then maybe the Reds should do more whining and less self-congratulating.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    They work on it for 1 hour each day during Spring training. You can really see by June at the latest exactly how much all of that hard work pays off.

    That guy should be called up immediately. He's already an 80 in whining.

    Cardinals scouts probably have an entirely separate column on their grades, just for the Whining Factor.

    Did anyone look at the evidence? Looks pretty obvious to me.

    It looks obvious that something is on his glove in that one single frame screen shot. Impossible to conclude anything beyond that. However, my opinion is that it's far more common than we think for a pitcher to use an aid of some sort.

    It is very blatant across most teams, especially in the summer. Pitchers put sunscreen on their glove hand forearm and use that. Cannot remember who, but one pitcher went so far as to say the hitters are ok with it. Since it gives pitchers more control, fewer batter get HBP.
