Blue Jays pitcher: “I sort of tipped” pitches for all to see

Far from confirming that Aaron Judge didn’t sneak a peek into the Yankees dugout the other night to see if he just won the lottery etc.

Yes, Aaron Judge didn’t have a dab of pollen in his eyes.

And the New York Yankees hitter didn’t look sideways into his own dugout Monday night at the Rogers Center to see if he’d just won the lottery or something.

During that attack, just before he hit his second home run of the night, Judge certainly got some sort of dugout help, which was perfectly obvious at the time and seems to be corroborated by Toronto Blue Jays pitcher now at the time, Jay Jackson.

Jackson told, “From what I was told, I sort of called the shots.”

That means he did something different in his presentation with different throws that caught the eagle eyes in the Yankees’ dugout to their credit and somehow relayed it to Judge before each throw during that shot.

To their eternal credit, it has to be said that the veteran Blue Jays announcers on Sportsnet’s live broadcast — Dan Shulman and Buck Martinez — immediately noticed Judge’s odd but brief sideways glances a couple of times while he was waiting for Jackson’s next pitch and up Jackson’s next shot awaited, and then a lot of post-game bullshit was endured by overexcited members of the Yankees and their never-satisfied fans.

Recognizing signs by visual observation alone is not illegal, if not 100% honorable.

Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay said of, “It’s perfectly legal … as long as there are no electronics involved … The Blue Jays better wait until the last moment to prepare and figure out where the field is going.”

As Jackson now admits and agrees.
