    Mets win on a walk off HBP that should not have been called as Conforto actually stuck his elbow out. Ump missed it. While whether a HBP happened or not is reviewable, the judgement on whether player made effort to get outta way is not.

    So this Trevor Bauer doctored ball thing is interesting.

    I haven't followed the whole thing closely, but he apparently made some allegations about guys spin rates going through the roof when they played for the Astros (Gerrit Cole, e.g.), and not-so-subtly accused them of cheating (shocking, I know).

    So, he let the world know that he was going to prove his theory in his next start, and sure enough, his spin rate increased, "mysteriously." And now MLB is investigating him. Because God forbid they do anything about the Astros.

    re: bauer

    His bigger point about the shitty way MLB is doing this is valid. Even if pitchers dont have the tar, catchers could, outfielders could, even the batters have residual tar all over them, including the bat itself

    So taking a ball outta play etc. is not a way to conduct a thorough investigation. But when has MLB ever conducted a thorough well designed investigation.

    As noted, all pitchers are having balls removed as instructed by memo during every game. Yet Bauer after his criticism in the past, is the only one in the news.

    Two league officials said umpires are instructed to collect balls from every game, including every pitcher, to then be sent to an authenticator. MLB informed teams last month the league would crack down on pitchers using foreign substances to doctor balls.

    “We have instructed umpires, GCMs, ECOs, and Authenticators to submit baseballs that come out of play to the Commissioner’s Office for further inspection and documentation,” a memo sent to the clubs read. “They will prioritize baseballs that contain potential evidence of a foreign substance, but also will randomly select balls to ensure full coverage.”

    Way to keep it classy Yankeefan. Had to stop the game in the 8th inning due to fans throwing baseballs onto the field.
