NY Mets relief pitcher Drew Smith was ejected from a game yesterday for cheating. The umpire decided that he had a sticky substance on his hand after gingerly caressing their hand like two teens on their first date. It is Pride Month after all.
Smith apparently has told reporters that he had MLF official check his hands for a foreign substance, because there was nothing on his hands.
The Mets lost the game, but Drew Smith lost a little credibility and dignity after being accused of cheating with his sticky hands. Maybe it's a genetic condition, where's the inclusivity mob protesting for the sticky hand folks of America.
According to crew chief, Smith had the stickiest hands he's touched this season. When he touched his hand, his hand stuck to his hand and sticky hands are ILLEGAL.
Smith faces a 10 game suspension because "sweat and rosin" is not a valid defence for sticky hands, since sweat and rosin are the only substances allowed on a pitcher's hand.
