KENNY ROGERS’ DIRTY HAND

3

Last year in July, there was a rumor that Kenny Rogers might be coming to the White Sox for the pennant push. I spent some time dissecting why that would be a terrible idea.

I also spent some time laughing at the Tigers for inking Rogers to a 2-year-$16 million contract when they were so far from being a contender.

I’ve spent this postseason realizing how wrong I was about it all. And I wasn’t the only one. Last night Rogers became the oldest pitcher to ever win a World Series game.

I’ve marveled at Rogers along with the world this October, wondering when he would implode or explode or just melt.

Last night he gooped away all of my newfound respect for him. Over at ESPN.com, Gene Wojciechowski has a great summary of the whole story. I still want to know how Rogers was allowed to stay in the game.

    About the smudge—To me it seems like if there had been anything to it Larussa would have pushed it more and the Umps would have checked into more. Sounds and looks like something the media wants to push to spice up a dull series.

    The umps should inspect it regardless of what the oppoaing manager says. The bottom line is he was breaking the rules.

    Dirt doesn’t leave a stain. It is sad to see a pitcher stoop to such a thing at this level. Who would want to have their true character to be exposed in baseball history in such a way?
