I'm ready for this story to be over, along with everyone else except a couple of dumb ass Toronto radio personalities. Clay Buchholz is saying he wasn't using sunscreen, though he has used it in the past, for sunny day games. You know, to be safe. Herald: “I’ve used it in the past, but that wasn’t on my arm at any time this season,’’ Buchholz said. “Day games, you put sunscreen on. That’s what you do. You put sunscreen on.” He said the issue boils down to slick baseballs. “If nobody has ever touched a Major League Baseball, most of the time it’s really slick for the simple fact they rub it with that mud, and when it sits in a bag all it feels is like a ball of dust,’’ Buchholz said. “If it’s going to your mouth and wiping it off to get a grip on the ball, or going to your arm because you have rosin on your arm, or put the rosin on your arm, that’s what it’s meant for.’’ Clay is ready to put this in the past, and it may be playing a bit of a game in his head. He is letting it get to him instead of just shaking it off. David Ross weighed in too: “I don’t really know what to say to that,’’ the catcher said. “I know in ‘Major League’ guys were accused of putting jalapeno on their nose and rubbing snot on the ball. I don’t know where they’re getting the sunscreen from, but if (Yahoo) has any tips for our guys, we’d love to hear what works better, like BullFrog or what SPF might work better. “We’re just trying to win ballgames here, not worry about how bright the sun is or what SPF we need.” Hey, David, maybe you should be a little more concerned about what SPF you need. That July sun is brutal.
