Yesterday, the Dodgers’ Casey Blake accused Ted Lilly of “cheating” by starting his windup with his foot in front of the rubber.â†µ
In the Chicago Breaking Sports link above where Blake accused Lilly, Ted responded:â†µ
“Sometimes a batter will get in the box and he’ll step out, and behind the box, and on the lines,” Lilly said. “I don’t think he’s trying to cheat. It might not be intentional.”â†µ
Might not. But then again, it might. You can bet the Cubs will be watching Casey Blake’s batter’s box positioning very carefully next time the Cubs play the Dodgers.
