Mariano Rivera did not spit on the ball

1) As I will show later, he clearly missed the ball with the spit. It was a bad angle.

2) He throws a cutter. What’s the point of spitting on it, he doesn’t want drop.

3) There are hundreds of cameras with tons of people watching. Why spit now?

4) That’s not how you throw a spitball. Not even close.

5) Why would he spit right before the game is about to resume and not before his warm-up?

The spit is clearly below the ball. It’s a bad angle.

His first pitch had four inches of movement. So much for spitting on the baseball.

Let’s put the rumor to rest. Mo did not cheat. The creator of the video owes Mo an apology.

EDIT: Deadspin has better photos
