Blue Jays’ Alek Manoah calls Yankees ace ‘worst cheater’ in MLB history

The Toronto Blue Jays ace joined NBA star Serge Ibaka on the latest episode of Sportsnet’s “How Hungry Are You?” mini-feature and spilled the tea on a few baseball-related questions with the former Raptor.

Before the pair enjoyed cricket tea and dish consisting of fish sperm, Ibaka asked Manoah who he thinks the worst cheater is baseball. The 24-year-old quickly answered with Cole, the New York Yankees star hurler, who has been heavily scrutinized for his alleged use of spider tack in previous seasons.

“Gerrit Cole,” Manoah uttered. “He used a lot of sticky stuff to make his pitches better, and he kinda got called out on it.”

Experts predict MLB’s next great superstar

Mark Feinsand, executive reporter: I know it might sound crazy to say this given that he plays in Tampa Bay, but I feel like Wander Franco is the guy. The hype around him has been crazy, he’s on a team that contends annually, and he has that superstar aura we look for in these guys. Now he just needs to stay healthy.

Andrew Simon, editor/writer/researcher: I’ll go with Julio Rodríguez. The talent is obviously there, the production is getting there, and if we’re considering star power, he also has the sort of magnetic personality that could make him one of the faces of the game.

David Adler, researcher/reporter: Bobby Witt Jr. And it won’t even take five years. I’m all in on him. Love the swing, love the tools, love everything.
