TEAMS: Miami Marlins

Via Gamedayr:

Miami Marlins pitcher Alex Sanabia had just given up a home run to the Phillies’ Domonic Brown. While he was obviously frustrated — what pitcher wouldn’t be? — he reacted in a manner that is just not legal.

Sanabia hocked a big ole’ loogie all over the baseball.

We can argue the balls and strikes and all that, and the fact that Sanabia only struck out two more batters all game indicates that he was not cheating throughout the contest.

But the Marlins did win, 5-1, and you can expect some Phillies fans to be upset by what you are seeing above.

  • Kinda gross! Now I know why it's illegal.
  • I'm not upset at the marlins pitcher.I'm disgusted with the PHILLIES, there's better high school or legion ball being played than what the poor excuse Phillies are giving the fan base, it's time for the fire sale to start.
