I do think the "dirtgate" thing is being waaaaaaaay overplayed by the media. I played high school baseball and even then it was pretty much common knowledge that on those bitter cold early April days the pitchers were likely to be "loading" the ball. I for one took comfort in that fact as the idea of facing a guy with an eighty-eight mile an hour fast ball with no control frankly scared the crap out of me.

My theory on why LaRussa wasn't more adamant about the umps inspecting Rogers is because he knows Leyland could do the same to his pitchers. Now I happen to be a serious fan of both of these managers, and to me the way LaRussa handled it is exactly the way WE ALL should be handling it.

Bubba -- We're currently watching Game 3 with a Detroit fan, and though there's lots of ribbing back and forth about "dirt", I'm not really worried about it.
