The New York Mets were struggling against Joe Musgrove, and in the bottom of the sixth inning Mets’ manager Buck Showalter wanted an inspection against Musgrove for substance check, stating that pictures went viral of his ear shining. The request was taken into consideration and umpires checked Musgrove’s era thoroughly but to Showalter’s bad luck found nothing.

According to Buck Showalter, he had taken this decision because he had prior information for illegal means in the game. An increased rotation Musgrove’s spin was the main reason Buck had to call in for an inspection. And he didn’t care how this decision would make him look in the public eye, because all he wanted was the best for the Mets.

But according to Joe Musgrove, Buck just did him dirty. “The foreign substance check by the Mets was ‘desperate’ and the team’s ‘last attempt to get me out of the game.'” Musgrove said. “It almost just lit a fire under me,” he added.
