Real Honorable Mention

ESPN's Gary Miller, Moises Alou and Jorge Posada.

If you didn't already hear:

"Wrote Miller, "Alou says the secret to hitting without batting gloves is to harden your hands and prevent calluses."

Sounds reasonable. So how does Alou go about hardening his hands? What's the secret?

"He urinates on his hands," Miller wrote. "That's the honest truth. Alou said he isn't sure where he learned this distasteful folk medicine, but it wasn't from his famous father. And it works for Moises."

OK. Now you know why Powell doesn't want to shake hands, ever again, with Alou.

My first thought?

Wasn't this the same Gary Miller who was once arrested and charged with urinating out a window of a Cleveland nightclub? Yep, it's the same guy.

What a coincidence.

(You want to talk about bad timing? Miller had the misfortunate of urinating on a couple of off-duty Cleveland police officers who just happened to be standing under the second-floor window of the nightclub.)"

Jorge said in a separate interview he pees on his hands ONLY during spring training...
