Allegations rising of Florida Marlins using de-humdified baseballs against Rockies

39

Recent developments have pretty dire implications for the Florida Marlins organization: Theft and blatant Cheating. The Marlins advance scouting team has been linked to a recent break-in at Coors Field, where the only thing that has been reported missing was 2 boxes of baseballs that had not yet been placed in the humidor. After Donnie Murphy's walk-off home run against Colorado closer Huston Street and Emilio Bonifacio's 9th-inning triple off of rookie Jhoulys Chacin, a brief investigation was performed on the Florida Marlins. The accusation, as it stands, is that Florida stole de-humidified baseballs, kept them in a de-humidor, snuck them into Sun Life stadium, got them past several MLB officials present at most MLB games, tricked the umpires into allowing them (possibly involving bribes, threats, and numerous concurrent hidden-ball tricks), and fed them to the Rockies' relief staff during Tuesday and Thursday's tight games. "I thought they felt a bit funny," said Colorado closer Huston Street. "My slider usually has a few more inches of bite. It was frustrating. And yet, strangely familiar..." When asked for his thoughts, Rockies reliever Rafael Betancourt only offered "I don't know, I didn't notice anything. I only throw a fastball anyway." More details on this totally real and not fabricated whatsoever scandal as we get them. Click the link for the full details.
