    Re: Cardinals Minor Leaguer thinks Lester was cheating last night

    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.

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

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

    If anyone would know what an illegal substance on the glove looks like, it's a Cardinal pitcher.

    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.

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

    So this is why the Cardinals pitchers gave up 8 runs. I see.

    Yeah it is awful when fans whine about a pitcher on the other team cheating, we would never do that.

    You just can't hide unnatural movement acquired by using slippery substances from pitch f/x, this isn't 1960. If they want the umpires to start checking for pine tar and sunscreen and other grip assisting substances, go for it.
