With Hal McRae playing the part of Emile Zola

But the St. Louis Cardinals team has now gone on record in USA Today saying that Kenny Rogers was both putting pine tar on the baseball Sunday AND scuffing it too.

"It was so blatant," Cardinals hitting coach Hal McRae told USA TODAY on Monday. "What was so strange about it was how obvious it was, in the World Series. It's a shame a guy would cheat in a World Series game. It hurts the integrity of the game.

"He wasn't just cheating by using pine tar; he was scuffing balls, too. We collected about five or six balls that are scuffed. He had to be using his fingernails or something."

Rogers says he's innocent. No Devil's Island for him.

Why the turnaround now? Could this cause a fall-out between McRae and LaRussa? Are they just trying to get in Rogers' head for a likely Game 6?

Day late and a dollar short on the riot act, Cards. Is the delayed reaction to cover their asses?

And yet there is absolutely no consideration at all given to the theory where the Cardinals offense was so easily shut down because THEIR HITTING COACH IS HAL MCRAE!!!
