They said they risked their children’s lives… Scherzer, I won’t appeal! accept the punishment￼
New York Mets Max Scherzer decided to accept the disciplinary action. That doesn’t mean he admits guilt.
On the 21st (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, reported that ‘Shurzer’s sticky foreign substance controversy was concluded with a 10-game suspension disciplinary action and a fine.’
MLB.com explained, “Schrezer said he has decided not to appeal because the best thing for the Mets is to accept the suspension, citing the club’s ongoing rotation problems.”
It is possible to prove ‘스포츠토토innocence’ through an appeal, but it is interpreted as a position that the team will not prolong the problem for a long time. If you just digest the discipline, Scherzer can start again from May 1st. That’s like skipping two rotations.
Previously, Scherzer pitched in an away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 20th. A foreign substance was found in the glove ahead of the 4th episode. According to MLB.com, Scherzer has been pointed out that his hands are sticky since the second inning, but he seems to have failed to clear up the referee’s suspicions.
Scherzer protested that the rosin was just mixed with the sweat. Scherzer expressed regret, “I swear on the lives of my children. I did not use any foreign substances other than rosin.”
The judges who ordered Scherzer’s ejection submitted a report stating, “The level of stickiness was so great that it was concluded that rosin or sweat alone was inconsistent.”
MLB.com said, “The umpire claims the level of stickiness on Scherzer’s hands was among the best he’s seen this season.”
Scherzer complained about the vague standards.
“There is no objective, quantified measure of stickiness,” Scherzer said. “What was acceptable in one inning could be illegal in the next inning because of sweat. Can you say 7 or 10? They said I was too sticky, but my sweat How can I know how much this is coming out? Where is the line?”
MLB.com said, ‘Schurzer accepted the suspension. Regarding the fine, he said, he said he had negotiated a reduction.
