Moehler caught using SANDPAPER!


Recommended Posts

On BBTN, since the incident with the Nats and Angels the other night, they decided to show clips of some of the most famous and not so famous cheating incidents over the past few decades. They showed clips of some of the more famous incidents like Joe Niekro, then about half way through they showed BRIAN MOEHLER from 1999 who at the time was playing for the tigers and was caught with a piece of sandpaper taped to his thumb and then suspended for 10 games, LMAO :lol .


May 1, 1999: Detroit hurler Brian Moehler is ejected in the 7th inning for having a piece of sandpaper on his thumb against the Devil Rays.


May 3, 1999: Tigers P Brian Moehler is suspended for 10 games for scuffing the ball two days ago. Moehler denies having sandpaper attached to his thumb and instead says it was dirt. But Moehler says he won't appeal.


Shame on you, Brian :lol :lol :lol

The lesson today, children, is about cheating in sports. Contrary to what the do-gooders and social workers might say, cheating is a perfectly acceptable part of sports. What is not acceptable is getting caught at cheating in sports.


Example A is Detroit Tigers pitcher Brian Moehler, who was caught with a piece of sandpaper on his person this weekend while working a game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Moehler apparently was using the sandpaper to alter the roundness of the baseball, causing the ball to dip and flutter past Devil Rays batters. He was suspended for 10 days for his infraction.


The do-gooders no doubt will say, "Hah, winners never cheat and cheaters never win." I say, "Couldn't he have found somewhere to hide that sandpaper?"


Cheating is a basic part of most games. In football, the defensive linemen try to cheat, anticipating the quarterback's call. The offensive linemen try to cheat by holding the defensive linemen's shirt. In basketball, the shove, the bump, the grab are part of the cheating game. Look at the Miami Heat. In hockey, well, the goalies are wearing illegal pads to stop slap shots from illegal sticks and everyone is grabbing and holding and committing assorted infractions. There's more cheating taking place in a Stanley Cup playoff game than at a Texas roadhouse on a Saturday night.


Repeat after me, children: Cheating in sports is good, but getting caught is bad. Shame on you, Brian Moehler.

Another good one...


Dirty Pitcher


After two rough innings in a game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in May 1999, Detroit Tigers pitcher Brian Moehler allowed just one hit over the next four innings.


Growing suspicious of the way the ball was evading his hitters, Tampa Bay manager Admin Rothschild complained to home plate umpire Admin Barnett, who promptly investigated - and found sandpaper taped to the thumb of Moehler's pitching hand.


Moehler's defense? It was not sandpaper on his thumb; it was dirt!


:lol :lol :lol
