Then followed up with this gem:
Saying that Clay Buchholz is cheating because he was touches his arm in between pitches is a dick move.
Buchholz was quick to respond. He said:
"There's a rosin bag behind the mound and it's there for everybody to use every inning after our warm-up. Put rosin on my arm throughout the game. Got to find a way to get grip. But yeah, I mean, definitely no foreign objects or substances on my arm."
John Farrell also responded and seems pissed. Farrell said:
"It bothers me immensely when someone is going to make an accusation, and in this case cheating, because they've seen something on TV. He's got resin on his arm. I think resin was designed to get a grip. But the fact is, he's got it on his arm. I've seen some people who have brought photographs to me. They're false, The fact is the guy's 6-0. He's pitched his tail off. If people are going to point to him cheating? Unfounded."
I think I have a mancrush on John Farrell. He basically took the words out of my mouth. I am tempted to declare him an Honorary Masshole for that bitch slap.
What really pisses me off is that people are going to believe this Hayhurst dude. He once wrote an article for Yahoo Sports titled The art of doctoring baseballs is alive and well in the year 2012. So this guy has some cache.
I just hope people give Buchholz the benefit of the doubt and dont believe this dickhead. Like Farrell said, Buchholz is pitching his tail off this season. He doesnt deserve to have this bullshit hovering over his head.
