Otsuka Controversy

Postby polyphonic » Sun May 02, 2004 1:44 am

"New York played the game under protest after Padres reliever Akinori Otsuka threw one pitch in the eighth inning. The Mets contended that Otsuka, who has an unusual delivery, balks with each pitch."

Uh, am I wrong in thinking that you can't balk unless someone is on base? Otsuka retired the side in order in the eighth, and I think he has a different delivery when there are runners on base.
serious as a heart attack
makes me feel this way
