MLB Betting: Morris apologises to Buchholz after spitball accusation

MLB betting services learned that Toronto Blue Jays broadcaster Jack Morris, who last week said that Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz threw a spitball after watching video of the player’s performance, said that he sought him out to speak with him before the game at Fenway Park on Friday.
“I told him I was sorry that I had taken attention away from what he was doing — that’s not what I was trying to do,” said Morris, who won 254 games in the big leagues. “I told him to have fun with it.
“We’re cool. He was cool with it. That’s all that matters to me. As long as he’s cool with it, I don’t care what anyone else thinks.”
Last week, Morris said that he did not notice anything out of the ordinary during Buchholz’s start on May 1, which was a 10-1 win for the Red Sox, but he was convinced by a subsequent video review that Buchholz threw a spitball, and baseball betting fans could see how controversial this accusation proved to be.
MLB betting services found out that Dirk Hayhurst, former major league pitcher who is now a broadcast analyst for the Blue Jays, told Toronto radio station “Sportsnet 590 The Fan” that the pitcher was cheating.
Then MLB betting services learned that the Red Sox disputed the accusations, including Buchholz manager John Farrell and Buchholz, who said that it’s the first time that he’s ever been accused of throwing a spitball.
Buchholz, who is a huge favourite with baseball betting fans, was named April’s AL Pitcher of the Month, going 5-0, and MLB betting services saw that after the win in Toronto on May 1, the player improved to 6-0, and in his only start since, he allowed four runs in six innings in a no-decision.

“I’m doing the same thing right now as I did in 2008 when I was sent down to Double-A,” Buchholz said last week. “But I guess something’s got to be wrong, right?”
