Too some people, Jon Lester’s Game One performance in the World Series was too good to be true.
After the game, Lester was accused of rubbing a substance on the ball to get a better grip.
Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti discussed if Lester really was doctoring the ball to gain a competitive advantage.
“Now, you know what we have, this isn’t the World Series this is a spitball contest, who can throw the best spitball,” Felger said. “That’s great, that’s why I watch this stuff to see who can cheat the best. This is the part of baseball that I can’t stand, that the cheating is institutionalized.”
Massarotti agreed with Felger that Lester was doing something to the ball.
“When you see that one photo in particular that’s out there of the inside of his glove, Mike, how can anybody argue he didn’t have something in his glove,” Massarotti said.
