MLB doesn't seem to care about Alex Sanabia's spitball
Marlins right-hander Alex Sanabia plainly threw a spitball on Sunday night, but MLB is showing no signs of taking action.
An illegal and plainly obvious spitball, is what they call that. Anyhow, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that, according to Marlins manager Mike Redmond, no one from MLB has contacted the team regarding the incident.
Given that MLB has had a full work day -- and change -- to ruminate over what Sanabia did, one might assume at this point that nothing's going to happen, perhaps because the umpiring crew either didn't notice or chose not to take any action at the time.
As ever, definitions of "cheating" in baseball remain untidy and inconsistent.
