Major League Baseball’s crackdown on pitchers has finally paid off. On Sunday, we saw our first casualty of the crackdown. Pitching against the Chicago White Sox, Seattle Mariners pitcher Hector Santiago was ejected from the game after umpires seemingly determined him to have foreign substance present. Replays show the umps checking the inside of his glove.
UH OH!! Looks like we may have our first POSITIVE substance check. Hector Santiago's glove has been put into some sort of bag to be shipped off for inspection. What a time we're living in. pic.twitter.com/ZyDCtJ7Fim

Considering it’s been 2 decades since they last made the playoffs, I for one am okay with the Mariners using sticky stuff.
Hell, give them all PEDs and corked bats while we’re at it.

So far this witch-hunt has proven to be quite a joke. From Nationals’ pitcher Max Scherzer being checked three times in one game, to Mets’ Tylor Megill being checked after his MLB debut, to A’s Sergio Romo actually dropping his pants, it’s been a bit wild and weird.
Glad they finally found something worth noting.
