I thought that used to be taboo when you were on the rubber. Wainwright was doing it constantly last night. One of those things that could be called but never is, I guess. Kind of like not trying to get away from a pitch...oh, never mind...

The league changed the rule 4 years ago. Pitchers can go to their mouths on the dirt but not on the rubber, and then MUST make a discernable effort at wiping off the hand before going into the windup or stretch.

Okay, then I guess he was within the rules. Geez, you used to have to ask permission to blow into your fist to warm up your fingers on a cold October night. Flashbacks from 1979...
