    I actually saw that during the game. Looked very odd. Also, his hat was faded on the bill like Kenny's.

      SAN DIEGO (AP)—Padres manager Bud Black defended Jake Peavy on Sunday, saying a dark substance on his right hand after a game against the Dodgers on Saturday was just a mix of dirt and rosin.

      The sports Web site, www.thebiglead.com, posted images Sunday it said were sent by a reader after Peavy tossed a two-hitter in a 4-1 win over Los Angeles. The images, purportedly still frame shots from a TV broadcast of the game, show a dark substance on Peavy’s right thumb, index and middle fingers.

      “When you play baseball, your hands get dirty,” Black said Sunday. “He had dirty hands. Trying to keep his palms and fingers dry, you apply rosin and dirt. Rosin is a sticky substance, and as often as he goes to the rosin bag, as often as he goes to the dirt to sop up moisture, your hands get dirty.

      “I don’t think there is anything to it. Modern cameras can pick up a dirty hand.”

      Peavy (2-0) has allowed just one run in 16 innings over two starts this year. The right-hander won the NL Cy Young Award last season.

      “There’s nothing on my hands that’s not supposed to be,” Peavy told the San Diego Union-Tribune for a blog entry on its Web site. “I thought it was funny that it was such a big deal. I’ve got no problems with anytime anybody needs to check me.”

        I'm glad we don't play San Diego anytime soon. Birds on the Bat would detonate.

          If it's so normal, then every pitcher should have dirty hands, yes? Are we focusing on this guy just because he is pitching really well, and the media is looking for a story?

            That's funny, his curveball fingers and thumb just happened to be the only parts of his hand that got dirty.

              Peavy is the best pitcher in the National League right now - why would he have to cheat?

                  I joke about Pettite and Clemens -

                  My guess is - everybody does it.

                    Ding ding ding. Tough to explain that one. Too bad reporters don't press him on that point.

Additionally, when you rub the ball, you would have more coverage of this substance. When I pitched and used a rosin bag, I never had buildup on my hand like this. Me thinks Phil Neikro would be proud ............
