Davey Johnson Calls Joe Maddon A 'Wuss,' Joe Maddon Speaks Nonsense

This will be our one and only post on the subject of the pine tar in Joel Peralta's glove, so we'd better make it count.

We pick up the story after Joe Maddon had described Davey Johnson's request that umpire Tim Tschida check Peralta's glove as a, ahem "feline maneuver" in his postgame press conference Tuesday night. Davey, your response?

Oh-ho! The first-grade versions of ourselves got all excited.

Over to you, Joe Maddon.

OK, I guess that's fair.

So, Maddon wants, essentially a gentleman's agreement not to narc on pitchers who break the rules. How very Corinthian. And how very stupid.
