Now now , subby, there's a lot of difference between smooth and *cough* non-smooth balls.  The non-smooth are easier to grip, hold onto, twist and turn, whereas the smooth ones just slip out of your fingers at the least little tug.  Unless you're holding onto them really tight, but some might like that....

He could tell which ball was which with his eyes closed.

Pffft I can do it blindfolded, too.

Every series has its quirks?  That's what you are going with?

But the pockets are dirty as hell.

We're both teams being given the same balls? Then deal with it.

And let me tell you, he's got a nice pair of smooth criminals down under.

I thought this would be a Jerry Sandusky thread.

Looks like a souvenir ball, would be funny if the game balls got sent to MLB stores and other outlets instead.  More likely someone tried to switch to a cheaper source of cowhide without telling anyone.

of course MLB is going to claim there isn't a difference, or that it's only a matter of perception, but I'll trust the guys who have made a career out of being among the best ball-handlers in the world.

I was looking for ritualistically shaved testicles, but I'll allow it.

"Rubbing mud" sounds like a euphemism for something awful.
