    At first look I could tell it was rosin mixed with the sweat on his arm. Pretty heavy accusation to make with little to no proof. careless on Dirks part.

     




    I'm in no position to comment

     

    1 way or another

    only that the soaking hair does make one wonder

    enough to open the conversation

     



    Yup, just like the time when there was a video clip floating around Mo's spitting on the ball right?

     

     



     

    A pretty desperate insinuation directed at a player with a career now spanning 18 years.

    Doesn't square up with some suggesting a unaninous vote into the hall.

    The video that went nowhere.

    And how does become an issue about a Yankee?

    This was started by 2 Jay announcers.




    I agree. no need to bring Mo into this.

    There are a number of pitchers that do something to the ball to get a better grip on the ball, which in turn gives it good movement. the better the grip, the better the movement. You can look at the movement and tell if the pitcher is trying to pull a gaylord perry. the bottom drops out of it when using a FB. doesnt work with off speed stuff. Buchs ball moves laterally, totally different. Hes always had nasty stuff, all the way back to when he was drafted.

    Re: Buchholz accused of cheating.

    If I were Buchholz, I'd use the whole scenario to my advantage.

    A pitcher is always looking for an 'edge'.  There is no better edge than getting into an opponents head...ala Gaylord Perry(although he, what I read, probably did throw a spitter), Phil Niekro, or for the other 'old-timers' out there, Ryne Duren, the Yankee with the coke bottle eyeglasses who would throw his warm-ups to the backstop at about 100mph back then.

    The best thing for Buchholz is to milk it.  Let the opponent think he's doing something illegal.  If he's asked during an interview, he should just smirk and say "of course not" and give a sinister giggle

    I didn't mean it as an accusation.  It was meant complimentary.
