Every pitcher who appears in the game must be inspected at least once, and nobody can use anything except the rosin bag available on the mound.
Pitchers are not happy about this, partly because of the specifics of the rule but more because of the way it was imposed midway through a season instead of being safely rolled out when they had time to adjust to it. Rays star Tyler Glasnow already believes the sudden changes helped contribute to his elbow injury.
Two days into the new TSA checks, frustration is already mounting quickly. Every starter gets this treatment at least twice when they pitch, and every reliever gets it the first time they leave the mound. Rangers starter Kyle Gibson got a shake down from umps -- prob to check for sticky substances pic. See if you can spot the subtle moment when three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer gets annoyed, while being inspected for the third time in four inningsthis time in the middle of the frame because the opposing manager tried to falsely narc him out as a strategic move.
That manager, Joe Girardiwas later ejected for escalating his tantrum further. Terrible look on MLB pic. I have nothing on me. Sergio Romo took it a step further than Scherzer had, actually pulling down his pants to provide full disclosure, though fortunately not full transparency.
The umpires are trying to do their job as well. Welcome toand another Rob Manfred Special. The problem of increasingly sticky stuff being used by pitchers for a competitive advantage has existed for years, and Trevor Bauer has been screaming about it to anybody who will listen. The league could have dealt with this over any offseason instead of ignoring it like they do all their problems.
Instead they pulled this rush job at the worst possible time and pissed off absolutely everybody. And just wait until more teams begin using this strategically to interrupt the pace of play, like Girardi did.
Fans will love that. A terrible idea is going as terribly as expected. Table it until the offseason and then address the issue properly like it deserves.
