Look, It's A Tip Calculator
From Jon Heyman:
Here's the real reason Randy Johnson was pounded by the Mets while throwing 97 mph: He was tipping his pitches. "Definitely,'' one Yankee said, adding that Carlos Delgado is the master at detecting pitch tipping. "I don't know what you're talking about,'' Delgado said with a smile. "I was on the third-base side. I couldn't see.'' Delgado was asked whether he'd admit to tipping off teammates to Johnson's tipping, and Delgado responded, "I wouldn't tell you.''
OK, if the "one Yankee" knew it, why didn't he put a stop to it? It did seem like the Mets were swinging like they knew what was coming.
This could sort of explain why the Blue Jays bash Randy as well. Maybe it's something that Delgado picked up when he was there? It would make sense for the Yankees to fix this - quickly.
