Joel Peralta was ejected from Tuesday's game for having a foreign substance on his glove.
Interesting. Nationals manager Davey Johnson had the umpire crew check Peralta's glove before the eighth inning even started, and he was sent to the showers after an investigation was completed. Peralta played for the Nats in 2010, which makes you think they knew going into the game that he usually has a little something on his glove. We probably haven't heard the end of this story

If anyone has MLB.tv.. Watch the 7th inning of the 3rd game between the Rays-Mets last week when JP Howell was on the mound. He had gotten rocked the previous two nights and in this inning his 2-seamer looked something out of the Bugs Bunny cartoon. I told a buddy I was watching it with that he was manipulating the ball with something. He did not have that kind of movement at all the previous two games. It was completely absurd how it was moving.

Sure, it's against the rules technically....but what could he have put it in there that would make any difference?

Nats minor leaguer who had played with Peralta in AAA in 2010 I believe stated that the amount of pine tar he uses is unbelievable.

You can ignore my above post, I was thinking of a different Peralta, not the pitcher.

I was thinking this was about a fielder, not a pitcher.

haha at Maddon...


“It was kind of a p--- move to go out there and do that under those circumstances,” Maddon said. “I like the word p--- move.”


“From a real veteran staff on the other side, knowing how this thing works and how it’s worked for many, many years, you can go back to spitball pitchers to greaseball pitchers to whatever kind of pitchers to scuffball pitchers, this is just how the game has been played for 100 years, more than that,” he said. “So to single out Joel Peralta tonight, that’s my concern.”

In retaliation, Maddon asked that Tschida check Nationals reliever Ryan Mattheus’ hat and glove.

“I looked at the hat,” Tschida said. “He put them both out. I looked at the hat. The hat was all sweat anyway. And the glove was clean as a whistle.”

yup.

I was wondering why it mattered if a fielder had a foreign substance on his glove

BTW, if you really wanted to do something to a baseball, the catcher should be the one with the stuff inside the mitt, no one has done that before, and it would be easy for him to conceal it and rub it as he tosses it back.

They were talking about this on Full Count (on Yahoo) and a. Peralta pitched for the Nats in 2010 and b. the first base coach for the Nats coached the AAA team that Peralta was on.

I think they had an idea.

It's been done a lot with the first baseman's glove. He applies the substance during pickoff attempts.

Maddon is becoming such a douche bag. Dude your pitcher was cheating and he got caught. Should have tossed him as well.

So awkward... I got Peralta in a holds league... on one hand I can't drop him because he's been solid and so has his track record... on the other hand... he could have been cheating the entire time...

The Nationals did the same thing to Brendon Donnelley in 2005. Looks like calling out relief pitchers for pine tar is the Nationals thing. Every seven years.

Joe Maddon is being a ****ing idiot with this unwritten rules ********. The unwritten rules crap in baseball is so stupid. There is a rule book, and if you don't follow the rules, you get burnt.

There was an incident between an ump and Russell Martin earlier this year where the ump insisted on throwing new balls back to the pitcher himself. I think the ump suspected Martin of doctoring the ball.

If you're going to cheat, how stupid is it to do it against a team that you used to pitch for?:facepalm:

Nah, the ump was PO'd at Martin for arguing balls and strikes earlier in the game.

Now that I've familiarized myself with this story, Maddon is not the douche, the Washington staff is. Is it OK to let a guy cheat when he's on your team then rat him out when he leaves? So it was alright when he used the substance with WAS's AAA affiliate, but not now. If Trent Jewett was a coach of mine, I wouldn't tell him what time it was, the rat.

Hhahaha. Are you some kind of insider into the Nats and Rays clubhouses? How in the hell do you know Peralta even used pine tar as a Nat. It's a ****ing rule. It doctors the game. He got caught. It gives the pitcher an unfair advantage.

Oh, OK, they just guessed he had too much pine tar and they were right.
