At least Rob Manfred and company are doing something now, even if their hands aren’t totally clean either. And I understand Joe Girardi may have been a bit extra in asking for Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer to be checked for a third time, but pitchers really shouldn’t have been caught with their pants down to this degree. Plus, what MLB is doing has thus far been supported statistically, as spin-rates and strikeouts are down, while batting average and home runs are both up since pitchers have been checked.
