"What we're doing right now, this is not the answer," Scherzer said after Washington's 3-2 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies , according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Umpires checked the three-time Cy Young winner three times for sticky substances during Tuesday's game. One of the searches followed a request by Phillies manager Joe Girardi, who was later ejected for yelling...

    Scherzer (6-4) looked sharp in his return to the rotation after missing a start due to a groin injury, striking out eight in five innings. Girardi apparently didn't like what he saw.
    In the fourth, Scherzer threw high and inside to Alec Bohm, sending him sprawling to the ground before striking him out. Prior to the next batter, Girardi asked the...

    Well if you thought Scherzer might be about to pull his pants down at any point during his interrogation with umps, Oakland...

    We don't need to tell you that Max Scherzer is a dominant pitcher. But he's clearly so good that he needs to be checked for foreign substances during a game.
    You've certainly heard by now about Major League Baseball's new crackdowns on pitchers using foreign substances like spider tack and sunscreen during their outings. They now will be checked by umpires and are subjected to fines and suspensions should they be caught.
    New York Mets starter Jacob deGrom was the first pitcher checked. He, obviously, was clean and pitched five scoreless innings Monday.
