During a game against the Yankees, Mets pitcher Max Scherzer tried out the new PitchCom system that Major League Baseball recently allowed the use of. Despite putting together six shutout innings in their win over the Yankees, Scherzer claimed to media postgame that the system should be illegal.

“The fact that we’re taking this out of the game and we’re just putting in technology, now everybody—you can’t steal signs on second, the pitcher can’t have an advantage of having a complex system,” Scherzer said. “It’s part of baseball trying to crack someone’s signs. Does it have its desired intent that it cleans up the game a little bit? Yes, but I also feel like it takes away part of the game.”
