I fell asleep in the 4th inning of the game yesterday and didn't wake up again until 9:30 this morning.

Kinda glad I passed out when I did...

BREAKING NEWS: GATORADE-GATE?
Last year it was Kenny Rogers and pine tar. This year could it be Manny Corpas and Gatorade?

That's the question that has conspiracy theorists and uniform obsessives buzzing today, after Corpas, the Rockies' closer, appeared to be engaging in a very unusual bit of sartorial adjustment prior to coming into Wednesday's game. During the top of the ninth inning, TBS cameras showed Corpas buttoning up his jersey. Then he stood up and grabbed a Gatorade cup. At first it looked like he was taking a drink, but instead he leaned back and deposited the cup's contents onto his chest, which he then examined and rubbed with his pitching hand.

Nefarious doings, or just a case of the dribbles? According to this report, Corpas "appeared to go to that spot [on his jersey] before several of his pitches in order to get a better grip on the baseball," but that seems a little strong. A review of the game video shows only one clear instance of this, and that's after Corpas had stepped back off the rubber and leaned down to rub some dirt onto his hand, which he subsequently wiped on his pants and then on his jersey's mystery spot -- all perfectly legal, assuming there was nothing sticky on his jersey.

But that may be a big assumption. For now, two things are certain: First, a lot of eyes will be on Corpas if he warms up during today's game. And this is probably the best free promotion Gatorade's gotten since the advent of the victory dunk.

It's highly unlikely the Phillies' batters could have hit him regardless of whatever it was.

Unless he's putting Vaseline on the ball or something like that, nobody in the game is going to make a huge fuss about it.

As I understand it, lots of pitchers use pine tar and other sticky substances to help them grip the ball, and it seems to be tacitly accepted throughout baseball. If one manager requests a formal inspection in a playoff game and gets an opposing pitcher ejected, then there will be retaliation, and eventually neither team will have any pitchers left. Sort of a Mutual Assured Destruction scenario.

i like how he put the mystery liquid on the back of his neck first, in order to throw off the authorities. he's just like mcguyver.

or maybe it was hot.

there's a poll on espn page2 about lebron and the yankee hat.

the question: why did lebron james where a yankees hat to jacobs field?

the choices:
1) he's too politicaly correct to wear cheif wahoo
2) he's trying to impress "mystique" and "aura"
3) he wants to be like tom brady
4) he's an idiot

he's an idiot has 71% of the vote. i concur

Can I vote twice? Because 4 is a no-brainer, but everybody wants to be like Tom Brady.

I'm a hypocrite too Dalton, except I don't mind cheating hitters either if it's corked bats. PED's turn me off, though I'm not sure how much they help anyway...but corking bats, scuffing balls, spitballs - that stuff to me just adds more theater to the game. It's especially funny when they're caught, I remember Joe Neikro getting busted and he had enough nail files and emery boards in his pants, he could start a salon. That crap is just funny. Or when Albert Belle had the corked bat and the Tribe were trying to hide his bat? Great stuff.

5) New York strippers are WAY hotter than Cleveland strippers.

I'd vote for number 5. A 'stripper' in Cleveland is a sheep after it was shaved....

When you're a Cleveland stripper, what's the next step up, like, on your way to Vegas or NY? Cincy? Indy? Toledo? Maybe Philly? I just don't know.

I do know that Lebron is an idiot, though. Clown. Then again, you try leading that pack of scrubs to the Finals.

When I get bored at work and don't feel like doing anything productive I surf the web.

When baseball writers get bored, they write this article: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...x.html?eref=T1

Clap out the syllables with me:

Re dun dant.
