Steve Kline, complaining about a balk call in the Orioles/Yankees game last night:
“Giambi called time. I stepped off the rubber. You could hear the Yankee bench yelling ‘Balk.’ Once you get hit for it once, the umpires look for it. That was a bogus call. I was deliberating whether to put [home plate umpire Foster] in the Cobra Clutch. It was a great game until that happened.”
I don’t think he meant this kind of Cobra Clutch.
thatbob: Wow, the Cobra Clutch, natural arch-enemy of the dreaded Camel Clutch!
