Junichi Tazawa BOS DNP                     Was recently accused by Jack Morris of doctoring the baseball. From WEEI.com's Full Count: During Thursday night's broadcast, Morris also noted that Junichi Tazawa rubbed his fingers on his left forearm at one point, and raised questions about whether Tazawa was cheating. "It looks to me like he's got a little something on his forearm also. I don't know if that's anything in the slippery point — it might be some tacky stuff to get a feel, but it's obvious that he has gone to his forearm, too," Morris said. "Who knows? That might just be deception, too." [WEEI.com 5/2/2013] Tazawa spoke to reporters and denied the claims. "I use the rosin and some times water, but I am not doing anything illegal. ... I will not worry about," said Tazawa. [Sponichi 5/4/2013]
