BTW, it's spelled L-O-S-E-R! Why in Lord's name do people spell this simple word incorrectly?
Kenny Rogers and everyone else is full of shit. For whatever reason, The Gambler gambled and took a chance that all of those FOX tv cameras all over the stadium weren't going to notice the pine tar on his hand. That was just so lame. I know it was cold, but the guy wound up pitching well anyway. What was he thinking or not thinking when he took the mound?

did my eyes deceive me or did they show "dirt" or "chocolate cake" on his pitching hand in several other post season games?

Lamest attitude you could EVER have!

Remember....these teams from "podunk" have, what, 1/3 of the payroll of the Yankees? And they are able to win more than one playoff game!

Edit: Sorry for the double post.

I was just trying to add a bit of humor in this thread, spoofing the stereotype of NY attitude. But it really DOES tick me off when players who can't handle the heat here do well elsewhere...

Does anyone know if Bono was at the game? It would be so horrible if he shook hands with Kenny Rogers and got pine tar on his shirt or something.

And he didn't have to wash it off, Pudge licked it off his hand between innings.

how does a pitcher not know that their hand is all gunked up? Pitchers make sure that everything is perfect before they throw each pitch. they fix their hat, wipe stuff on their leg, spit, deep breath etc....everything has to be just so. I would think that if you had a big sh!t stain on your hand, you might feel it or AT THE VERY least realize that the ball doesn't feel right for some reason.

I don't buy the excuses one bit.

Oh, he definitely put something on his hand intentionally. I just don't see why it couldn't have been pitching dirt/clay and rosin (which is still somewhat shady -- dirt doesn't count as a foreign substance, and the umps don't make a pitcher wash his hands every time he hits the ground, but I don't think you're supposed to be slathering your hand in it).

it was so obvious though. other guys hide it in the belt while others under their caps....this was so blatant.

wasn't there a guy back in the 80s who got confiscated and he had a piece of sandpaper and as the umps were talking to him he kind of threw the sandpaper away behind him?

tom neidenfuer perhaps...

he got away with it in the first two games and got careless... who knows. no one noticed it the first two times, why would he think someone would noticed it this time?

whatever it was... i don't care. kenny rogers is still dead to me...
