Phillies reliever Austin Davis has cheat sheet confiscated by Joe West

Veteran umpire Joe West confiscated a card from Phillies reliever Austin Davis in the eighth inning of Philadelphia’s 7-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.

Davis and Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said he was using the card merely for information on the Cubs hitters. West said that was illegal under Rule 6.02(c)(7), which states that the pitcher shall not have on his person, or in his possession, any foreign substance.

You don’t see this every day…..

   101. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: September 04, 2018 at 05:40 PM (#5738493)
No one should be able to go on the field but players, coaches, umps. Not even for pitching changes--especially for pitching changes. And no one should be able to call time to visit with the pitcher--not the catcher, shortstop or any player or coach. None of these silly arguments with the umps. (Of course there would be exceptions, like for injuries, but stopping the game should be rare.)

Those guys should know how to play the game. They should know what to do in any given situation. If they don't, they should learn. The manager can devise a system of signs and signals to communicate, but there should be no specially allotted time for this. Yeah, they would restrict his in-game input. Good. This would shorten the time of the games and quicken its pace. I think this along with making the batter stay in the batter's box and the pitcher stay on the rubber would also do wonders. A clock would help here.

Then if that's not enough, consider limiting the number of pitchers a team can carry.
