Thanks for pointing out that sticky substances don’t translate to fewer HBPs. I always felt it was a lame argument by pitchers, and now we have evidence that it doesn’t appear to help prevent batters from getting beaned.
Yep. Pitchers are just babies who throw the ball at people when they get mad.
Logically when you have something stick to your fingers would it not stay in your hands longer and the ball would go further in arm side?
I grew up playing baseball but fell in love with other things after high school. After several years i’m rediscovering my love for the game and your videos are a big reason why. Stumbled upon them one day a few weeks ago, so I immediately subscribed, and have watched almost all of them. Just wanted to say thanks and your videos are super well done. Keep up the awesome work!
This was me 2 years ago!
Dude baseball is dead
Where should we mail the chapstick to?
Were the other things Jesus
Check out Jomboy for great breakdowns. Informative and hilarious.
all of this is allowed but tony la russa isn’t allowed to sleep in the dugout 😤
As a Sox fan I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this comment
He sleeping on his own team 🥲
Joe Torre sure as hell was.
Griffey got bashed for it too
@first name last name what, get drunk? Yeah, pretty much. Gotta keep that carcass pickled, or it’ll start to rot.
Just coincidence that James Karinchak has come back from “injury” over the last two weeks and has a sub 3.0 ERA and huge k-rate again. Just coincidence.
lmao that dude was my first thought as well, he was so obvious about it before the ban
hes just good I guess
@Red Pill Philosopher uh huh
@Desmond Toltzman That’s what happens when a new CBA is signed with “provisions”
And what is the MLB going to do about it? Nothing
Honestly I think that pitchers should have 1 or 2 universal substances that the MLB decides are okay like pine tar or something behind the mound that every pitcher can use. That way it’s fair and you don’t have pitchers doing crazy shit like using spider tack or boiling different substances together to make it even stickier.
@Dominic Teneriello You’re confusing pine tar and spider tack. Pine brought HBP down, spider tack glued their fingers to the ball messing with release point and causing ridiculous spin at the cost of control. Stop talking.
@Goalkeeper[ゴールキーパー] pitchers say that becuase they want to have pine tar back so they can increase spin rates. But clearly pine tar does not give them grip but an advantage as HBP went down with a heavy enforcement. Adding pine tar and enchanted spin rates cause more control issues not less
@Dominic Teneriello Rosen and sweat isn’t good enough clearly. Batters have an on-deck circle with all the stuff they can use, do the same for pitchers. That way there is no ambiguity. Also I said specifically so they DON’T use spider tack. There are substances that will give them a better grip that won’t significantly affect spin rate in the way that spider tack does. Just give them something besides that rosen bag that tons of pitchers have said doesn’t do anything.
They have Rosen and sweat right now. I think the spin rate lowering with hit by pitches going down proves they have a good grip on the ball with that. Anything else enhances spin rate as the video said spin rates are at an all time high. However three true outcomes are down which means the spin rate itself may not effect this maybe a change in approach from batters. To me Rosen and sweat are like batting gloves for hitters, but spider tack is like a corked bat
It’s just easier to say “yes” Cole. 😂😂😂
@Corvid Confidential eh, they get fined for anything they say these days, better off being safe and play it off as being dumb
brutal. still can’t believe he answered it that way😂like bruh we can see literally all of you doing it lmao
it probably would’ve been easier and funnier to be witty about it, but from what I’ve seen, I don’t think wit is a common trait amongst professional sports players.
Bro that was so awkward lmaoo
@tag easy. Change the name to lizard tack. There you go, problem solved
Cole short-circuited during that interview response
@SheaSheaWanton fr lmao probably a good kid 🤷♂️
i almost feel bad for him there. if he was a natural liar like arod or braun that wouldn’t have happened.
great vid really thought out and well explained cant wait till tomorrow for my Cooperstown’s tournament really hyping me up thanks for the amazing baseball content love binging these while eating or before I go to sleep keep it up and u will hit 500k before anyone knows it great job
“Have you ever used spider tack?”
-player ones controller has disconnected-
Boobeeebeeep* we’re sorry, but the person you are trying to call does not have a voicemail box set up yet
it’s crazy to me that he wasn’t given prior coaching to deal with this one question lol
Gerrit Cole literally couldn’t sound more guilty if he tried to
he cant really says no – his rpm was way way higher and everyone knew he was cheating(most pitchers was)
Would sound less guilty if he just said, “Yes I have. “
