Jays Announcer Accuses Buchholz Of Cheating

Hey, Hayhurst: Shut Up, Eh?
UPDATE: Jack Morris Also Buchholz Accuser
In a lame attempt to explain why his "Super Team" is in last place, Blue Jays broadcaster Dirk Hayhurst accused Clay Buchholz of doctoring the baseball in last night's 10-1 rout by Boston. TWEETED the porn-star-named announcer, "I just saw video of Buchholz loading the ball with some Eddie Harris worthy slick'em painted up his left forearm. Wow." Clay retorted today as follows, “There’s a rosin bag behind the mound and it’s there for everybody to use every inning after our warm-up. [ I] put rosin on my arm throughout the game. Sweat, water, whatever. … Sometimes I put a little thing of water on my hip just to get moisture on your hands ‘cause sometimes the balls that they throw to you feel like cue balls off a pool table. Got to find a way to get grip. But yeah, I mean, definitely no foreign objects or substances on my arm.” Hayhurst pitched a total of 39 1/3 innings in the bigs and compiled a stellar 5.72 ERA. Somebody shut this Bozo up, please!
