According to Mark Buehrle, the Rangers are cheating!

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2147225
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Chicago White Sox left-hander Mark Buehrle called the Texas Rangers cheaters on Tuesday, claiming that the team signals pitches to batters through a high-tech light system in center field.

Buehrle suggested Monday night that the Rangers knew what he was throwing during Chicago's 7-5 loss, and he repeated the accusation before Tuesday's doubleheader.

"I've heard rumors, so it's not just me saying this," Buehrle said. "I've heard it from tons of people. It's not just me saying this. ... Something's going on because they hit so good at home. The way they hit here, you'd have to raise an eyebrow to figure something's going on. Look at the stats. I'm not just making this up."

Texas entered Tuesday batting .285 with 125 homers at home, compared to .256 with 86 homers on the road.

The Rangers dismissed the allegations -- in some cases with a chuckle.

"It's crazy and it's funny," said Rangers home run leader Mark Teixeira. "It's an outrageous comment, an outrageous claim."

Texas DH Phil Nevin jokingly asked Rangers manager Buck Showalter why the lights weren't working when he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Monday night.

Buehrle, who allowed nine hits and seven runs -- four earned -- in seven innings, said he suspected the Rangers knew the pitches in advance by how they reacted in their at-bats.

"Certain pitches you throw, they lay off them like they knew it was coming," Buehrle said.

Stealing signs is common in baseball, and it's legal if done on the field. But using television or having a spy in center field to pick off a catcher's signals is forbidden.

"To have somebody out in center field or whatever they're doing, that's cheating," Buehrle said.

Texas hitting instructor Rudy Jaramillo said Buehrle's charges were insulting.

"We just had a good approach," Jaramillo said. "Maybe he said that out of frustration. He can think whatever he wants."

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen softened Buehrle's charges.

"You can go either way with it," Guillen said. "The way Buehrle pitched yesterday, it seemed they didn't need signs. Everything was right down the middle of the plate.

"This is a tough issue. We have to respect them because they kicked our butt last night. If we think they're doing something different, then we have to change the signs, location, whatever."
Apparently Buehrle doesn't realize that the Rangers play their games inside a matchbox.

Not that I know anything about what the Rangers are doing or 'known' for doing, but this has been done before.

Although Ozzy is correct...you can't throw the ball right down the middle and get away with it.

A lot of early games today.

That ought to be really easy to catch too. If lights are flashing on and off you'd think you could set up a camera to catch them. Apparently the lights were off for our 2nd game 3 hitter

Michael Young hit HR #20 this afternoon putting the first 6 batters in the Rangers order all at 20 HR or more, and our #8 hitter has 16 and #9 has 13. If only we could string together some non HR hits every now and then. By comparison, the ChiSox lineup has 3 batters with 20+ HRs. So far Dellucci, Young and Soriano have homered today.

What the heck happened to the Cubs? Just a few years ago, they had highly touted prospects and youngsters in Patterson, Choi, Hill, Zambrano, Wood, and Prior, they almost made it to the World Series a couple years back, and now they are losing to the Dodgers 0-7 in the 3rd inning and their fans are actually BOOING them!

Hardball with Chris Matthews, MSNBC, interview w/ Texas governor:

Matthews: "Small point, I don't mean to be whimsical, but at this time it wouldn't hurt for a little whimsy... but how do you get the Astros out of their, uh, ballpark?"

Governor "Well um, you know they're playing at, uh, a place called Minute Maid now, not the Astrodome."

Matthews: "Oh really?"

Governor: "Welcome to this year in baseball, Chris"

Just found this, Boomer's 'apology' to MLB:

"I met today with Major League Baseball and the Players Association and was happy to have the chance to answer questions about my press conference the other day and to learn more about the drug testing program and on-field disciplinary suspensions.

"Now that I have had this opportunity to sit down and discuss the issues, I better understand the procedures that go with steroid testing. I now know that neither Bud Selig nor anyone else delayed the Palmeiro case and that the Commissioner's Office has worked with the Union to improve the steroid policy. I also understand that John McHale, rather than Bud Selig, was the ultimate decision-maker relating to on-field disciplinary suspensions imposed by Bob Watson.

"I understand that I was wrong in my statements about these issues and for that I apologize."

But the Cardinals won.


I can't believe Jocketty didn't pull a rabbit out of his hat today.
