Is Jake Peavy a cheater?

An eagle-eyed viewer of the Dodgers/Padres game noticed something strange on Jake Peavy’s fingers after he tossed a complete game, 2-hitter for the win yesterday:

Is he cheating? Is it just a coincidence that the 3 fingers that grip the ball have a mysterious substance on them? Or does Jake Peavy wipe with his pitching hand?

YOU decide.

After the jump, I clipped video of the final out of the game and subsequent poopy-finger shot. It seems Peavy still has an awful lot of movement on his last pitch.


Propers to JSF regular & TBL weekender Patrick Imig for continuing his life-long efforts to uphold the sanctity of our national pastime.

  1. Jake is just embarrassed to acknowledge that he doesn’t know how to do ‘the shocker’.

    HDYSR… Isn’t it 1 in the pink and 3 in the stink ? That’s how my mother taught me.

  3. Looks like he thought one in the stink meant one fist.

    I perfer the “Spocker” 2 in the pink, 2 in the stink.

  5. Nick says:

    Sounds Like some sad sad Dodger faithfull to me eh ?

    Truth is Jack is as honest as a San Diego Summmer Day is long. If he says it was dirt… I for one believe him.

  6. Jon B says:

    It does sound like a Dodger Fan did this, thankfully Nick doesnt at all seem like a Padre fan so I will trust both him and Jake….Oh wait no I wont

  7. hoet says:

    You have to be kidding me. If Jake Sucks for the Next 5 Games then their might of been something weird on his hands. But if he plays great in the next 5 games he plays then there is nothing to talk about. Case Closed! Obviously there will be people watching his hand now. So we have to wait and see. He had an Awesome year last year.

    If he was using anything and it made him that GOOD, get me some of that.. I will try out for the Dodgers then.

  8. Joe B says:

    He admitted to using Rosin which is 100% legal, It is white but when you touch dirt it does turn dark brown. If it was Rosin then its Obvious why the three Fingers are Black. New Balls are coated with “Black Mud” it is a special mud from somewhere out in the boonies that reduces the Slip on the ball. All Clubs put that on their new Balls. That Mud can rub off. LOOK IT UP.

    Are you guys serious? Jake says it’s dirt…so I believe him. HAHA. The TRUTH is:

    If you are well aware of the microscope that the sport is being put under and the sudden tidal wave of purity that is pounding on the heart of America, why and the hell would you go out there with your hand like that?

    Save the pathetic excuses people.

    I am well aware of my hand…and I sure as hell would notice something on it when I was in the dugout and my team was at bat. Jake got caught and thanks to the world of blogging things like this don’t get swept under the rug. The reason you go out there like that is because you know it’s there and you have it there for a reason. Cheating is cheating….no matter it be steroids, pinetar, or vaseline. This should be dealt with. And if you want to really put a spotlight on this…tell pitchers to check their hands before the take the mound…that way the responsibility is on them and when they get caught with “DIRT” on their hand, we’ll know that they were aware of it when they took the mound, but they wanted it there. Haha.

    And save the Peavy is an ANGEL comments…look at Clemens, would you have thought he took steroids?

    FOR THE RECORD I’M AN A’S FAN…NO BIAS HERE

  10. Mike says:

    First off, I’m a huge Padres fan and my favorite player is Peavy and I think he has great Character…that being said, this is baseball and I wouldn’t be suprised if he cheated. I’d be dissapointed, but not shocked. It’s funny how other Padres fans still think it was the Snickers bar that helped Ken Caminitti and how SD fans believe Merriman used tainted Supplements and not steroids….yet they can’t stand Barry Bonds and think he tainted the HR record. I call it like I see it and even as a Peavy fan, it doesn’t look good.

  11. Joe B says:

    Hell Yeah I would have thought Clemens took Steriods!!! Look at his DAMN Head it grew three sizes!!! So did Barry Bonds Head.

    You can increase you Muscles a Good Amount, but Your Actual Head Growing Common!!! That is HGH + steroids all the way.

    Look up the Damn Black Mud online. Every baseball has it Period. If you liked baseball you would know this!! This sh*t Can rub off your hands specially if you have Rosin on it and make it black.

    Look up Dirty Jobs they had a special on it. Get a Clue you retards, This sh*t can rub off!

  12. Joe B says:

    One more follow up If you compare it to the Crap Kenny Smith had on his fingers, there is no comparison.. He had stuff on his inner-lower Thumb. There is no way that could be considered Black Mud.

  13. Will says:

    I’m a Giants fan, definitely not a Padres fan. That being said, of course I knew that Clemens was on roids. You really thought he just randomly regained his abilities at an old age? Anyway, it’s possible Peavy’s cheating, but it doesn’t really make sense. His numbers have been consistently good for years, and I strongly doubt he’s been cheating for years and just never got caught until now. As far as the crazy movement on his pitches, in case you haven’t been watching Peavy destroy your team for years, that’s why he’s good…there’s a lot of movement, and that last pitch wasn’t uncharacteristic of Peavy’s pitches at all. The guy’s fastball usually moves like 6 inches when he throws it 95-96…so just because his pitch is moving doesn’t mean he’s cheating. Finally, go play catch for a few hours and see if your throwing fingers get dirty. Then try putting some resin on your fingers. I bet they’d look something like Peavy’s fingers. Mine usually do even without the resin.

    I believe that he is a cheater

  15. Bruce says:

    More crying from the crybabies up north. Dodger pitchers invented the so called competitive edge. Get a life or better yet get a pitching staff. Sounds like your setting up an excuse early why the Padres will finish in front of you.

  16. Dave says:

    Peavy is cheating… he pitches at Petco

  17. jj says:

    joe b… get a life already. he cheated. i’ve been watching baseball for 30 years and have never once heard of “black mud”
