Jon Lester put in a performance for the ages in Game 1 of the 2013 World Series.

But . . . did he have a little help?

A minor leaguer in the St. Louis Cardinals organization wondered last night via Twitter if Lester was using Vaseline on his glove.

Melling, who has since deleted the Tweet, wrote: "Jon Lester using a little Vaseline inside the glove tonight?", and attached a picture.

There's also video of Lester appearing to rub his hands on something inside his glove.

Major League Baseball has issued a statement saying the video is inconclusive, and it doesn't appear that there will be any further investigation into the issue.

After seeing the pictures and watching the short video, what do you think? Did Lester have a foreign substance on his glove? Let us know in the comments section.
