    Is that tar or was the locker room toilet paper one ply? I'll be keeping an eye on this weirdo.

    I noticed that on the hat. I think it's just where a sticker was removed. If we see something suspicious when he faces us, we'll cross that bridge then.

    Send Tyler Bauer to investigate. He has some free time.

    Sticker thing makes no sense. Adhesive isn't going to do that much damage and I don't think the players would get hats like that. I've read that he's just rubbing that area with rosin, which is "legal." He's done it throughout his career apparently...

    Tonight was the first time I noticed it. Now I'll look into the hand. My findings could be less conclusive.

    If you were going to put some illegal substance on your hat for use during the game, choosing the TOP of the brim seems ridiculously stupid. I'm sure it is nothing.

    can't trust anyone that tries to get in his yoga workout while he pitches. If opposing managers can get on Morton for chewing gum, then I see no reason why not to always be cautious. Trust no one, scully.

    I saw it, too - but based on the results (a rocky inning that teetered on near cataclysmic collapse), if it's an illegal substance designed to make him pitch better, he's doing it way wrong.

    Maybe that's exactly what he wants us to think.

    Look at Kershaw's hat. Saliva on the hat more than anything else. Or dirt on the brim. My old Stros hat with sweat turned brownish. Pitchers are superstitious freaks.

    He may not get a chance to pitch in this series so we may never know.
