Casey Blake accused Ted Lilly of cheating on Thursday, trying unsuccessfully to persuade the umpires that the Cubs pitcher should have been cited for starting his windup on some pitches from in front of the rubber.

"I know he doesn't have an overpowering fastball," Blake said. "I know he's trying to get as much of an edge as he can. But he moved in.

"That's cheating. You've got to stay on the rubber."

Lilly did not hesitate to fire back.

"Sometimes a batter will get in the box and he'll step out, and behind the box, and on the lines," Lilly said. "I don't think he's trying to cheat. It might not be intentional."

By pitching from in front of the rubber, Lilly said, a pitcher would lose the leverage of pushing off the rubber. Any such deliveries were strictly inadvertent, he said.

"I might have done it a couple times, just trying to gain my footing," he said.

After Blake had singled in the sixth inning of the Dodgers' 1-0 loss to the Cubs, he said he noticed Lilly pitching from in front of the rubber. He asked first-base umpire John Hirschbeck to intervene. Within moments, first-base coach Mariano Duncan had to restrain the mild-mannered Blake.

"I got so fired up," Blake said.

Hirschbeck, whom Blake called "a good umpire," told Blake he could not see any violation from where he stood, behind the bag. Blake said he became angered when Hirschbeck declined to move up, warn Lilly or ask the other umpires for help.

"What's going to keep a guy from pitching the whole game like that?" Blake said.

Hirschbeck said he did not need to ask the other umpires for help because they all are empowered to call such a violation should they see one, just as any umpire can call a balk. He also said it would have been impractical for him to move up.

"I can't stand on top of the bag," he said.

I hope Casey had a nice life, Lilly is now going to murder him.

Only thing you need to ask yourself Casey is, "Was it worth it?" I mean, really?

Casey Blake's children (if he has any) are going to be orphans, so sad.

He definitely did do it at least once. But like Lilly said, he loses the leverage of pushing off the rubber. So doing it purposefully would just be silly. Also, if Blake is THAT worried about 3 inches, move back in the ****ing box.

Something tells me Casey Blake will blackout tonight and wake up in some medieval contraption and Theodore standing over him.

I agree with all of you that Lilly might just go Hostel on Blake. But if he doesn't...

...does this set set up a serious plunking and a brawl the next time we play? And if it does, who gets the better of it? We've got Marlon, which is probably enough. Should we bring in Farnsworth just so he can body slam Manny?

If Lilly was doing it, that is an infraction.

Yet, he was not doing it the entire game. That would be just silly. This is just an overreaction.

Well the good news is that now we've got an organ donor for Baker and Zambrano.

That, and Lilly gets to feed.

That would be alot worse.

At least now the Dodgers can solve their 2B jam. Blake wont be around for long.

They showed the replays it Lilly was CLEARLY off the rubber. I can't imagine a pitcher wouldn't notice he was off, but that doesn't matter now.

Might makes Right, and Ted is Mighty so Ted will be Righty

When they showed his foot on the mound a few innings before Blake vagina started leaking, I remarked to myself that his foot was a few inches off the rubber.

I can't see that giving him any advantage at all, but it was definitely noticeable on TV.

Either way, Lilly's the man, and everyone should know it.

Regardless of whether or not it gives the pitcher an advantage, how come none of the umpires could see it, and denied that it was happening when it was pointed out? I couldn't watch the game, but it sounds like it was something that was very noticeable.

Len and Bob even mentioned it. But like Lilly said, it doesnt even give him an advantage.

They wanted no part of Ted Lilly. They care about their families.
