Joe Maddon continues to expose himself as a complete fraud
Previously, his hypocrisy was featured with his reaction to a beanball incident with the Red Sox. This time, he's whining about his pitcher getting caught with an illegal substance in his glove.
Rays reliever Joel Peralta was ejected after being caught with pine tar on his glove during last nights game against the Nationals.
Instead of acknowledging that his pitcher was trying to cheat and got caught with pine tar in his glove, Maddon tried to point fingers to everyone else in the league, and basically insinuated that many others in the game did the same thing.
Maddon was asked repeatedly whether Peralta cheated, and he refused to give a clear answer. He accused Nationals manager Davey Johnson of "insider trading," because Johnson knew about Peralta beforehand, because of a previous relationship with him.
Much like the Patriots' SpyGate situation or the Saints' bounty program, it really doesn't matter how many teams or players have done it... if you get caught, you have to own up to it and pay the price.
In this case, it's Maddon's player who got caught, and he'll likely be looking at a 10-game suspension.
Here's the video of Maddon's post-game interview, in which he discusses the incident:
It would be nice to see Joe Maddon actually take the high road for once, but I'm not sure we'll ever see that from him.
