Ja-less Grizzlies defeat the Lakers in Game 2 | The Panthers stun the mighty Bruins in Boston | Will MLB suspend Max Scherzer? 


When the whole family comes together to watch the game, nobody wants to miss a second of the action to run to the grocery store. With Instacart, you can get all your weekly groceries in as fast as an hour.

All one people, one family. It took me a little while, but I decided to claim autism as my superpower. When you hear the word autism, don't let that hinder you from doing whatever it is that you want to do. That's what Special Olympics tells you. You get involved in sports, but then you take it from the playing field out into real life. Family means to me community, acceptance, love, embracing a person just as they are. That's what Special Olympics did for me. It's all about family.

I'm honestly not sure that anyone cares. Okay, a few people care. But the majority of the sports audience doesn't seem to be a whole lot of buzz over the NFL Draft, so maybe we'll try to gauge your interest this time.

Our next show, this time tomorrow, simply because we'll be then one week away. And I know it will be interesting in prime time. There'll be a lot of people that tune in.

We know the NFL Draft routinely gets pretty high ratings, at least the first round with the prime time. Definitely during the pandemic when Roger Goodell was hosting it from his basement. And if you all remember producer Chris, my goodness, he was sure that Roger Goodell was completely, completely drunk. Like, no way. We had this debate over and over and he's like, oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. His drink was spiked. He was absolutely drunk. Anyway, it was very popular.

Probably not for that reason. But since then, with the NFL's move to prime time and the fact that they move the show on the road now. So it's not just New York. They've done, what, Cleveland and Vegas and Nashville and Philadelphia. Perfect. And now heading to Kansas City. So, yeah, it's become a prime time event and it's become an event that makes money in various cities.

Par for the course with the NFL. Thank you. You're welcome. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio.

Thanks so much for hanging out with us on this Thursday morning. We're asking you, well, you know what, I'm going to have to reset so you know where it's coming from. But Dylan Brooks had a message for one LeBron James and really for anyone who thinks that Dylan should back off of his instigating, his trash talking, his jawing because LeBron is the king. After the game, Dylan was asked, now we'll circle back to the game because there was no Ja Morant.

It was all hands on deck for the Grizzlies, but this is really been the theme of our show. Dylan Brooks asked by reporters about jawing with LeBron and the idea that maybe that's not the best idea, Dylan. I don't care. He's old.

You know what I mean? I was waiting for that. I was expecting him to do that game four, game five. He wanted to say something when I got my fourth foul.

He should have been saying that earlier on. But, you know, I poke bears. I don't respect no one until they come and give me 40.

So I pride myself on, you know, what I do is defense and take it on any challenge that's on the board. I don't care. He's old. I don't care.

He's old. I don't think you're legally allowed to say that about LeBron James. I feel like you could be excommunicated from the NBA if you say that about LeBron.

In fact, I'm ducking and I'm ducking for cover. When the microphones find LeBron. By the way, Jay. So Jay and I were discussing this earlier and I said this happened at Dylan Brooks locker. So it was not at the postgame podium. But I wasn't sure. I assume that LeBron had already finished his postgame remarks and that we would that we'd heard from Dylan afterwards. As it turns out, someone actually figured out the timing. He had just stepped off the dais and finished his postgame media session when Dylan Brooks was getting interviewed at his locker.

So, yeah, better to be safe than sorry. I don't know if that was part of the calculation with Brooks. But I don't care. He's old. Now, according to Dylan Brooks, LeBron called him dumb. Dude, you call me dumb and I'm probably going to come back at you with something myself. But apparently, according to Dylan Brooks, LeBron called him dumb for having picked up his fourth foul. And so the two of them are barking at each other anyway. But Dylan didn't just start with, I don't care he's old and finish it there.

No, he doubled down and said, I don't respect the guy. Until he's dropped 40. Oh, OK. I poke bears.

Definitely poking bears. What are the chances that LeBron actually does drop 50 on him in game number three back in L.A.? He's got zero assists because he won't give up the rock. It's essentially just LeBron. And if there are three defenders on him, then he might give the ball up to Anthony Davis. Otherwise, it's LeBron's world and we're just watching it. I don't care.

He's old. Now, here are the numbers when Dylan Brooks guards LeBron. He's only got 18 points in two games.

He did have 28 last night and a dozen rebounds, though the Lakers didn't have a whole lot of answers for the Memphis Grizzlies. In fact, Memphis built a 17 point lead in the second quarter. And even though the Lakers rallied and Anthony Davis actually took that as a positive, even though they rallied, there was enough firepower and a balanced attempt by the Grizzlies that they never did give up the ghost.

And now they've evened the series at one apiece. The urgency, the discipline to execute our defensive game plan obviously set in tone in that first quarter, 19 point quarter. When in the first two quarters, obviously knew they were going to go on a run. I told the guys afterwards, like when we lock into our game plan, you know, we're going to probably get the results that we want. You know, that first game, we let them get some easy looks, looks that we knew that they wanted to get. And we just we didn't lock in enough and really try to take those away. Tonight, we did a lot better job. You know, I messed up a few times there in the first half and the second half.

So things I got, I still got to clean up and hopefully take a few more shots away. So but overall, we did a really good job and responded well. Yeah, Luke Kennard says the adjustment started on the defensive end. Taylor Jenkins thrilled with how they started out in the game with a 30 to 19 first quarter. And as I say, they were able to stay in front.

And it was a balanced it was really a balanced attack across the board. Xavier Tillman with 22. Jaron Jackson with 18. Dylan Brooks with 17 because he's not old.

I just don't think you're allowed to say that in polite circles about LeBron James. I don't care. He's old. He's the NBA's all time leading scorer.

Do you know what you're doing? I don't care. He's old. I don't care.

I'm going to poke the bear and he's old. Who else in sports can you say that about? Jay and I put together a list and we find it highly amusing.

Now, some of you are responding on Twitter, A Law Radio, also on our Facebook page After Hours with Amy Lawrence. I got to be honest, I pride myself on being fairly witty and ahead of the curve when it comes to sports talk. Why did I not think of Aaron Rodgers until someone sent us a post on Facebook? How did I not think about Aaron Rodgers? We did talk about other players in the NFL. In fact, Jay's two answers to the question of who else needs to hear.

I don't care. He's old in sports. Julio Jones.

Whoopsie. And Matt Ryan. Although then Jay kind of felt guilty about piling on Matt Ryan. I kind of went Jerry Jones myself.

Little Ezekiel Elliott along with that. I don't care. He's old. Is that also rude? Is that rude?

Zeke's a good one. I don't care. He's old. Well, good one. I mean, you know, whatever that means here. Do you mean you agree or OK?

Yes. Well, clearly Jerry Jones does as well. Who else in sports could you could you say that to? I don't care or about. I don't care. He's old. I don't care.

She's old. It might come back to bite you in the A double curvy roads, for instance, if LeBron drops 50 on Dylan Brooks. But hey, at least he had his phone in front of the microphone. So Aaron Rodgers, great answer. I'm also afraid to repeat the answer of Tiger Woods. Duck, duck, everyone duck. I also don't think you're legally allowed to say that either.

We've had some really good answers. So on Twitter, on Facebook, in sports, where does this apply? I don't care. He's old.

We're now starting to see other and like other responses that are Aaron Rodgers. And then there's people who have no idea what we're talking about. They're just answering the question. They're just respond to the part about he's old, like like this woman who says, I love being old.

Nobody can tell me I can't have a banana split for lunch. What does that have to do with what we're talking about? Clearly, that is a woman who's not listening.

Then I just saw one on Twitter. Also a guy who's clearly not listening. Age is just a number with maturity. All right. Thanks. Seriously, simmer down.

Thanks for correcting us. The banana split one is coming. You're clearly paying zero attention. Also, clueless. Well, you know what? I don't care because you're old. Why do you have to be 75 or 76 to have a banana split? Whenever you want.

Whenever you want. When is 76 old? I mean, yeah, but no. Anyway, so we've we've obviously come across people who have zero idea what we're talking about. But here's another one. And Gary's piling on because the Capitals did not make the playoffs. Alexander Ovechkin. He's got a hell a lot of goals, though. Jay, do I dare utter the name that I uttered earlier?

Should I share it again? I kind of feel like it's the only year that you can do this now in the past. However, 17 first time in 17 years, the Penguins don't make the playoffs.

So Sidney Crosby. Excuse me. I don't care. He's old. Would you like to add any other penguins to that list? Producer Jay. Oh, sure. We can throw up getting Malcolm in there.

Probably Chris Latang. Yeah, that's that's good for now. I feel like the Dallas Stars said to Marc Andre Fleury, we don't care. He's old. He gave up seven goals in last night's game.

So, yeah, there's there's plenty that can go around. But beware, though, because these are all world class athletes and you better own it because they can come back to bite you in the butt. I don't care. He's old. I mean, Dylan Brooks, he didn't learn his lesson in the skirmish with Draymond Green and getting torched by Draymond on his podcast. And so now he's going to go ahead and go at LeBron.

I mean, why not this idiot? You're not a champion. You a clown.

Speaking of clowns or at least clownish behavior, it's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. The Warriors speaking for the first time in the wake of Draymond's one game suspension. Now, we did find out that Draymond practiced on Wednesday and he did speak to the team.

No idea what he said. Maybe it'll leak through a player, but neither Steve Kerr nor Bob Myers, the GM, wanted to talk about it. And Bob said very specifically, we do not want this to be about Draymond. We got to focus on Game 3.

We've got Game 3 against the Kings at our own place on Thursday, and we're obviously in an 0-2 hole. We need to focus on the basketball, not Draymond. But he did talk to the team and he was there to practice. Steve Kerr, he admits Draymond can lose his head and he does seemingly in the worst possible times. He's the ultimate competitor.

He's the ultimate warrior, winner, however you want to call him, champion. And everybody knows he's going to occasionally tip over the edge and his emotions get the best of him. And that's part of it. But there's no stopping Draymond. You're not going to be able to put your arm around him and calm him down and say, OK, let's move forward from here.

It doesn't work that way. But like I said, it's OK. We accept Draymond for who he is and what he stands for and his competitiveness and his fire. Because we, frankly, we feed on that. And that's what helps us win. Steve Kerr is the one who handpicked Draymond to move into that starting lineup. Do you guys remember Harrison Barnes was in the starting lineup with the Golden State Warriors?

I think it was the end of Mark Jackson's tenure as the head coach. And then when, and maybe, maybe it was early in Steve Kerr's tenure. But when Steve decided what he wanted for the Warriors, he moved Draymond into the starting lineup.

He handpicked Draymond to be the center cog in the wheel for that defense. He loves his fire. He loves his passion.

But admits, obviously, there are times when it goes too far. And what I thought was fascinating, and I had not heard this before, but it did dawn on me, that as I was watching the incident with Damonta Sabonis on Monday night, Draymond's dancing all around. He's cupping his ear to the crowd. He's calling for them to taunt him and boo him even more. He's clapping.

He's John. And I remember thinking, nobody's with him. Nobody's trying to get him to sit or zip it. But what Steve Kerr is saying is so true. There's really no talking him down at that point. He's fired up. Now, the NBA admits not only did Draymond's previous rap sheet slash resume slash reputation precede him as they chose to suspend him for a game, but they didn't like how he acted. As the referees, the officials, are making their determination, as they're deciding whether or not Draymond should receive a flagrant two and be tossed out, he's dancing around like a clown, a little bit.

Like he's in the center ring of the circus. He showed no remorse. He wasn't worried about Sabonis. That's clear. And so that was part of the decision. Again, because Draymond in no way seemed like this, that he was sorry for what happened. Steve Kerr knows all this. He and Dray have gone at each other before.

We've heard them talk about that, too. And yet, Steve reminds everyone that Draymond Green is still really a building block, a foundation for what they've done, and doesn't sound like he wants him to change. Draymond is incredibly competitive and passionate and fiery, and he's helped us win four championships. I've said it many times. We don't have a single championship here without Draymond Green, and that's the truth.

So he's crossed the line over the years, and that's part of it. We will go to bat for Draymond and go to battle with him every day of the week. I need a Steve Kerr in my corner. That is one hell of a statement right after Draymond Green gets suspended in a pivotal Game 3. We don't have a single championship here without Draymond Green.

I love Steve's perspective. I don't always agree with everything he says, but he's loyal to a fault, and that's who I am, so I appreciate that. Draymond's heart, soul, fire, intensity, not to mention the skill, a Defensive Player of the Year candidate, most seasons that he's out there. He's got a knack and certainly has an incredible connection with Steph Curry, which is, again, another piece of this puzzle. We don't have a single championship without Draymond. We'll go to bat for Dray and we'll go to battle with him every day.

It's powerful stuff. So just saw this tweet, A-Law Radio. Ricky says this in response to the I don't care he's old. Mike McDaniel talking about Bill Belichick. Do you remember that when he was joking about Belichick being old? And then Scott writes in, I don't care, Aaron Rodgers is old.

And oh, great, he uses Aaron's Twitter handle. Perfect. That's just perfect. Talking about poking a bear. I'll see you later.

All right, coming up. The Milwaukee Bucks did not have Giannis. It did not matter. The Bruins drop a game in Boston against the Carolina Panthers. Oh, no. Oh, no.

Oh, no. It's the last hour of the show. The Florida Panthers, and they are ticked off.

We'll tell you why coming up. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Good morning to you here on CBS Sports Radio.

You are listening to the After Hours podcast. On behind the net, Barkoff, back behind the net, the trapezoid, Barkoff to Reinhardt, bank pass out to the far point, Montour. Montour walks in shot, he scores. Brandon Montour on a wrist shot from the right point. And the Panthers take a 3-2 lead, 22 seconds into the third. That boy turns it over, Kuchuck in front for Hagee, a shot and he scores. Carter for Hagee, able to give the Panthers a 4-2 lead, the Panthers cash in off the turnover. To the far point, Brandon Montour winds, fires and he scores.

A slap shot from the blue line through traffic and Brandon Montour's got two. The Panthers are up a trio. It's 5-2 with 7-30 to play here in the third.

This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. You know the old discussion about did a team win a game or did the other team lose the game? And sometimes it's splitting hairs, but I think back to, I'm going to use a Boston sports analogy here, the Super Bowl between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots.

I was there at that game, the one that went into overtime at NRG Stadium. And I will forever say, there is no chance the Patriots come back from 25 points down in the second half if the Falcons don't screw up. They don't do it.

It's impossible to do that. All things being equal, if the Falcons keep playing the way that they were, or at the very least don't turn the bowl over and make stupid decisions, the Patriots don't have the opportunity. It's not that they aren't capable, it's that they don't have the bowl and the opportunity to come back. That's kind of what happened with the Bruins and the Panthers. Lo and behold, playoff hockey never ceases to surprise.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. This wasn't even close. The Bruins get doubled up by the Panthers 6-3. Now multiple times, the Panthers took the lead, 1-0, Bruins came back and tied it. Panthers take the lead 2-1, Bruins come back and tie it. But what bothered the Bruins, especially their coach Jim Montgomery, is that they turned the puck over and gave extra opportunities to the Panthers. Wait until you hear the word that Jim Montgomery uses to describe the mistakes the Bruins made on Wednesday night. Does tonight's result give you pause to think about any changes on the back end?

I think it gives me pause to think about changes everywhere. Wait, that's it? There's no more than that? Oh, we don't have the cut where you talked about how the turnovers were catastrophic? Huh. Sorry about that. My bad.

I thought I was teasing something else. He goes on to say players didn't make the best decisions at moments. I thought for the majority of the first two periods we were doing really good things with the puck, but the turnovers we had tonight were catastrophic. I mean, there's a word.

I actually love that word as a wordsmith. Catastrophic. Right in the middle of the ice. Not typical of the turnovers we generally have. So he was not thrilled with the way the Bruins played and handled their business. But he talked about turnovers and sloppiness. And here's just one stat. I mean, it's just one stat to frame it. The Bruins averaged roughly nine turnovers per the 60 minutes during their regular season run to a record number of wins and points. But on Wednesday night, 15 turnovers against the Panthers, who did capitalize. Alex Lyon, first career playoff victory. That's kind of nice.

He and the Seattle Kraken. 34 saves for him. So, yeah, this is a big deal. Now, can the Bruins win on the road? Obvi. They just won 63 games. Wait, 65 games. Shoot. It's not been that long. And the number is already...

They set a record for wins. It's 65. 65. Always go with your second answer. That's not actually the adage, but when you're hosting an overnight show, you're into hour number four. Sometimes things don't come out right.

Then you go with your second answer. They can win on the road. They can win anywhere.

There's no doubt about that. So this is not catastrophic for the Bruins. Certainly, though, if you are the Panthers, this gives you life and hope. And you're not the team that's playing with the pressure.

I mean, a perfect role would have been great to steal, too. But after game one, this is all that was on their mind. I mean, we've put ourselves in a position where we have home ice right now. It's about hanging on to it as long as possible. But if you would have told me right after game one, like I'm pretty sure you did, what's the goal for game two? It's like just get a win.

Somehow, someway you got it. And if we did, we're going back to Florida even. So we'll take the split and run. Yeah, thank you, Bruins. Take the split and get the heck out of Dodge, says Matthew Kuchuk.

It's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS Sports Radio. The Miami Heat were saying the same thing, though theirs was in the reverse. They are the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of sports. Or if you just want to narrow it down to the NBA. I have zero clue which Miami Heat team is going to step on the court on any given night. They have the potential. It's a lot of the same pieces from their run to the NBA Finals, and that was the bubble, right?

2020. But then sometimes inexplicably, their defense disappears to catastrophic results. Oh, now that's my word. It's my word for the day.

Thank you, Jim Montgomery. Get this, the Bucs, even without Giannis, although it probably happens maybe in large part because Giannis isn't there. They take 49 threes. I mean, if you told me a team took 49 three-point attempts, I would have been sure that James Harden was involved. 25 of 49. 25 of 49. That's why they kept shooting him, because they were hitting him.

Roughly 50 percent. Pat Connaughton, 6 of 10 from beyond the arc. Drew Holliday with great leadership, yet again, a double-double, 24 points, 11 assists. But yet 81 points in the first half for the Bucs without Giannis. And so after they dropped the opener of their series with the Miami Heat, they knew this one was dire. We got a great fan base. We wanted to make sure we showed out for them.

They support us all the time, and at the end of the day, it's all about the teammates. Bobby and I talked about at the end of Game 1, you know, we're here to win. We're here to compete. We didn't think we did that in Game 1, and it's our job to make sure we lead the way as a championship DNA. We came out with a chip on our shoulder. You know, I think for us, when we've been most successful, we've had a chip on our shoulder. And that's why we wanted to start it, and it's a long series. You know, you got to play, you got to win four games, right? So it's about setting the tone and making sure that we keep that up for the rest of the series.

That's Pat Connaughton on Bally Sports Wisconsin. I mean, it's not a long series. If you drop the first two at home, that doesn't help you at all. So yeah, a split there as well. Meanwhile, the top seed in the West, the Denver Nuggets, they end up with a Nikola Jokic that still not be 100 percent.

They end up taking a 2-0 lead against the Timberwolves. There's a lot happening in sports. It is April. This is what goes on this time of the year. Let's see, what do we? Oh, though, we don't spend as much. We're going to spend as much time. A little bit of time on baseball here. We don't spend as much time in the start of the playoffs just because they're routinely seven or eight games per night in the NBA in hoops and hockey.

But Mad Max earning the, earning the mad, if you will. And I don't know what Major League Baseball is going to do moving forward now. It's a bit of a he said against they said. And maybe out there, there's someone responding with, I don't care, he's old.

I don't care, he's old. We're getting more of your answers on Twitter, ALaw Radio, and then also on our Facebook page, After Hours with Amy Lawrence. You are listening to the After Hours Podcast. Back here at Dodger Stadium and Max Scherzer has been ejected from the game by first base umpire Phil Cuzzy. And for the second straight inning when Scherzer went back to the mound, they checked his glove. And Cuzzy saw something that he felt Max could not have. And after an animated conversation, he ejected Scherzer from the game. This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence.

Animated is one way to put it. Yeah, Mad Max Scherzer making an early exit on Wednesday as the Mets were taking on the Dodgers. And this is after multiple encounters with the umpire. That's the call on Mets Radio with Keith Rad. So Scherzer gets ejected for having rosin in his glove. Except Scherzer said he not only did everything that the umpire asked of him in terms of cleaning his hand, cleaning his glove after he was checked the first time, but that they knew full well that he was putting rosin on his glove. And so Phil Cuzzy is the umpire that ultimately checked him and then tossed him. Along with the crew chief, who was the home plate umpire. And if you've seen the video, Scherzer is yelling, it's rosin! It's rosin! But ultimately he's the one who gets shown the proverbial door.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS Sports Radio. Max is never one to hold back on details when he feels as though he's been wronged. So after the second inning, my hand, it was a little clumpy from the rosin and sweat. It was clumpy and Phil told me to wash off, so I washed off. Came back out there after the third with alcohol, I washed it with alcohol and rosin. And when I went back out there, the alcohol for a little bit there can be sticky in rosin, that can happen. So he's like, that's too sticky, you need to go back on there, wash it off again and reapply the rosin. And so I did that and then at the same time he thought my glove had too much rosin on it. I was like, okay, if that's a problem, there's nothing going on. He's like, you need a new glove. Okay. So I come back out, I pitched the third and knew I was going to get checked in the fourth.

So I'd have to be an absolute idiot to try to do anything when I'm coming back out for the fourth. Um, first of all, I've never heard anyone say gripping sweat. Just, I gripped some sweat. I gripped it. How does one grip sweat? Just grip it.

Grip it and rip it, baby. It's a liquid. Right.

Yes. But if you have rosin in your hand and you, you then say, let's say you run your hand through your hair or your forehead where you might have some sweat. Let's hope he wasn't grabbing back sweat. He sweats a lot, I will say.

Or maybe he lifted up his jersey and swiped it across the stomach. Or even grosser. Oh no, Jay! Why?

Why did you have to go there? Why? Why? I don't care. He's old.

They're probably shriveled. Why? I can't believe you just said that. There, there's no way. There's no way because then he'd have rosin in all the wrong places. It would not be comfortable.

Well, I can't speak to that personally, but I'll take your word for it. I can't, I just, why? Why would you do that to me? I didn't say anything. It only happened 30 seconds ago. How can you act like you didn't say anything? I never said anything. I just implied another area that he could have, you know, I could have been talking about his foot. I don't know.

Yeah, right. He took off his shoe so he could rub rosin on his foot. You're such a, why are you such a, now you're backpedaling. This is why you're in there and I'm in here.

At least I own the stupid stuff I say. Anyways, so Max Scherzer says he grips the sweat and I was thinking, how do you grip it? But then if the rosin's already in your hand and you combine it with the sweat, well then it's, what did he say? Clumpy. I've never heard anyone talk about clumpy sweat before. It was a little clumpy. It was a little clumpy from the rosin.

So he gets checked multiple times. He says, I washed, I washed, I washed in front of people watching me. After that third inning, I'm in front of the MLB official.

That's, that's underneath here. Jay, you're so gross. I wash my hand with alcohol in front of the official. I then apply a rosin and then I grab sweat. I grab the sweat. I then go back out there and Phil Cousy says that my hand's too sticky. Clumpy.

Yes. When you use sweat and rosin, your hand is sticky. And it gets clumpy and you grip the sweat. He's so angry and fired up that some of what he's saying makes absolutely no sense. It was a little clumpy.

It was a little clumpy if you must know. He makes me laugh because he does. He gets so fired up that he, I mean, I do this to say things that just don't. Yeah.

Kaylon told me a couple of days ago. He wasn't drunk. I'm drunk. Why are you being so mean to Max Scherzer right now?

You're a jerk. He's on your team for heaven's sakes. What are you doing?

Then what are you doing? Calling him out about where he's putting his hands with the rosin. I'm just saying there's no way he did that because then he'd have rosin.

Yeah. Where no man should have rosin. Not the place for rosin, no. Nope. You don't want clumpy rosin there.

That is not the rosin bag, no. Oh my gosh. Oh, now all of a sudden you remember? Now you're okay with bringing it up again? Great.

Now you're owning it? Alright. I'm just saying there are places where clumpy is not a good feature. Oh my gosh.

It was a little clumpy. I can't even possibly return to the studio the next time. I just got back and I just now, well you know. I'm not telling anyone who I am either, just in the off chance that there's somebody out there who doesn't know who I am and is waiting for my name. Nope. Not telling you.

Alright, so Mad Max is still ticked and here's the problem though. There is a 10 game suspension that usually comes along with being ejected for having clumpy, sticky substances on your hand and glove. I don't get how I get ejected when I'm in front of MLB officials doing exactly what you want and being deemed my hands too sticky when I'm using legal substance. I do not understand that.

I do not understand that. Now according to the crew chief, the stickiness on Scherzer's hand was quote much worse than it was even in the initial inspection. Maybe the alcohol made it worse?

I don't know. He washed his hands with alcohol. He had to change gloves. But, according to the umpires, it actually got worse and then he said, I just have to read you this quote because it's only a quote.

We don't get audio of this from the umpires. As far as stickiness, this was the stickiest it had been since I've been inspecting hands which goes back three seasons. As far as stickiness goes, on the sticky scale, it was stickier than it's ever been. I've examined a lot of hands and this hand was the stickiest. Oh my gosh.

I mean, that's what he said. Compared to the first inning it was, this is even better, compared to the first inning it was so sticky that when we touched his hand, our fingers were sticking to his hand. We need to try that. Science experiment. Let's do that.

Rosin. Rosin, sweat, alcohol, more rosin and sweat, and then let's see if your fingers stick to my hand. I'm game. You want to try that for a science project? I'll try that. You know how when you were in 7th and 8th grade you had to do a science project for the science fair?

This could be ours. The problem is if your fingers stick to my hand then we're going to have to use some kind of other substance to get them apart. Have you ever accidentally super glued something to yourself? Yes.

Yes. What was it? I glued my hands together, really. It was my fingers. I remember using the Gorilla Glue.

That sounds like you. Yeah, so I had the Gorilla Glue on my index finger and I took my other index finger and I was like, oh, how strong can this really be? Yeah, it was pretty strong. But it was, to be fair, it was Gorilla Glue, not Rosin and clumpy sweat. Yeah, Gorilla Glue and sweat is what it was. Gorilla Glue and sweat. Gorilla Glue and sweat. Okay, so I accidentally, I mean I was able to get it off, but I accidentally super glued, it was actually Gorilla Glue as well, my hand to a railing that I was fixing on my banister, my staircase.

Oh my gosh. I mean, it did come off, but you know, for a second there, I was, it was touching, it was touching go. Did you like yanking, you know, like on the stairs? No, because I had, so one of the railings had, it split, it happened to be a knot in the wood and it just, it's older, so it's split right at the knot. So I had to glue it together and put a clamp on it. So when I glued it together, I was holding it and then put the clamp on it. So when I tried to move my hand away from, you know, the holding at the backside of the banister, I realized there was extra Gorilla Glue and my hand was in fact stuck there through the railing.

That was fun. It wasn't clumpy and it, I couldn't have been ejected for it, but it definitely was not my finest hour. However, the railing is still intact and my hand is also still part of my body, so none worse for the wear. Clampy not clumpy. How long did it take you to get your fingers apart, you dodo?

A little bit, a little bit. Some water, soap, more water, more soap, which made it worse. So alcohol.

No alcohol. I think that's where you went wrong. Sweat.

I think so too. That's the part that doesn't make any sense. It was clumpy. He washed it with alcohol.

Maybe alcohol is the key. That's going to be the next big thing in Major League Baseball. But according to the umpire, this was the stickiest it had been since I've been inspecting hands. It was so sticky that when we touched his hand, our fingers were sticking to his hand. It was far more than we've ever seen on a pitcher during live action. But they didn't know what substance. I mean, depending on where he stuck his hand. Gross. I can't believe you did that to me. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence, CBS Sports Radio. Boom.
