Imagine the impact of something like this:

Starting pitcher puts a little Nu-skin (legal) on his hand and makes sure there's a little dirt stuck to it. Just as the game is starting, an executive of the home team tips a cameraman to the dark spot on the pitcher's hand. TV shows it. Predictably, members of both clubs are back in the warm ramp watching the game on TV. They bring the brown spot to the Manager's attention. But now the side is out. When the pitcher returns, there's nothing on his hand but the opposing manager is out talking about it. The visitors spend the next seven innings looking for evidence of illegal pitches and neglect to get any hits.

Contacted later, George Tenent states it's a "slam dunk" Rogers was using pine tar. Rumsfeld and Condi argue for an occupation of Detroit.

Reminds me of the oldie nuckle ball pitcher in movie major leauge. Whatever happened to Niekro, Wilhelm, all those notorious cheaters, and who was the other spit-baller? Why does Rogers have to resume their traditions now against my Cards and get away with it? Sour grapes and whining all round, I tell ya.

It was SLIME sent to Rogers from Tom Cross ! rogers threw the age old slim ball and did it very good in the two weeks to go before election day .

Maybe the Cubs can hire Cross

There are some great photos of KR after the game with a towel over his pitching hand. Not over his shoulder, but over his tainted, brown hand.

Larussa is a despised man in STL right now because he did not step up. Ratings might go up now.

Ask Lew Burdette or Gaylord Perry. You don't want something sticky on your pitching hand. You want something slippery.

Interestingly, Rogers just passed Burdette in consecutive scoreless innings. Slimeball must work better in October.
