This is not gymnastics related but it was too damn hilarious for me not to pass along.
The Tampa Bay Devil Rays who have dropped the Devil from their names have been tearing up the AL East over the last few years and now we know why, they cheat.
There is no article on ESPN. I ran across this by accident on yahoo or I never would have known about it.
Wouldn’t you think if you were caught cheating you would at least feel bad about it or deny it? No not the Tampa Bay DEVIL rays. They whine because they were caught.
This is like Marta making up the rules as she goes along, screwing whomever gets in her way whining about the Chinese being underage.
So Tampa is whining because a guy that used to play for them (he was traded) told his new team about them using pine tar. Maddon the idiotic manager wouldn’t deny he was cheating. He was just mad that someone told them he was cheating.
If you or I admit to cheating we get fired. Joe Maddon the biggest %^$# in baseball not wearing black pinstripes won’t even be fined.
I hate these arrogant punks. The entire teams needs to be disbanded.
Maddon didn’t deny the charges — because, why bother? — but said it was a “common practice” for pitchers to use pine tar on their gloves. The sticky stuff helps you get a grip. Cheating happens, he’s saying. But there’s a gentleman’s agreement as to how to regulate it. And now he looks like a jerk who condones cheating, when any manager in the league — including Johnson — has players who do what Peralta did.
A gentleman’s agreement to cheating? Who the hell does this clown think he is?
Here is more fun on the situation. Joe Maddon needs to be suspended. He knew his pitcher was cheating and admitted it. NAIL HIS ASS TO THE WALL.
“We didn’t start the trouble but we will finish the trouble” Funny i think you started the trouble when YOU CHEATED.
