And both times it was against my Dodgers. Seriously, this goes so far in explaining why all of the Dodgers pitchers in the '17 World Series couldn't do squat with their off-speed pitches. Anyone else remember all of the speculating about how the surface of the special World Series baseballs was too slippery? Yet Verlander and the Astros seemed to have no trouble with their off-speed pitches. Clayton Kershaw still looked spectacular because his pitches were all about placement, and I'm guessing that they wouldn't have been able to decipher and communicate that.Two of the past few World Series champions used this system.. says something pretty powerful about the state of Baseball right now, IMO
Let's get serious here... there was no throwing of baseball games, there was no betting on baseball games and there were no performance enhancing drug taken...Very sad this has happened. When you think about this it was probably inevitable as soon as tablets, cell phones and digital watches arrived in dugouts. Nobody should be surprised, it has all ready happened in football. Carlos Beltran, new manager of the Mets, is involved as one of the players that banged on the garbage can. I can't believe the manager was not aware of something going on. Many owners are reviewing their rosters and staff to determine if they might be caught up in this. I would not be shocked if this further than just these two teams.
It would not surprise me if Cora is banned from baseball like Pete Rose.
