Dodgers ace Walker Buehler has been dealing with a blister on his right-hand for much of the month of September. He was only able to pitch in 11 2/3 innings for the entire month.
Buehler's blister issues were front and center during Wednesday night's Wild Card game against the Brewers. The blister was still visible during the game as was a substance that appeared to be keeping the blister closed.

Social media noticed that Buehler appeared to be going to his left wrist between pitches.

All of that led ESPN's Eduardo Perez calling Buehler out for cheating. He even broke out the rule book on his ass.

If you're the Dodgers you're not worried about anyone from the MLB investigating the cheating allegations. Even if they do investigate they don't punish cheaters anymore.
