According to this story, Scott Proctor, a New York Yankees relief pitcher, set fire to his glove after a 7-0 loss to the Oakland A's on Saturday.
According to the article:
Proctor carried his personal game equipment out to the field long after Saturday's 7-0 loss to Oakland and set it ablaze on the gravel outside the New York dugout, leading to tabloid headlines of "Proctor All Fired Up" and "Proctor in shambles, burns glove."
"It was all just a joke, man, I mean really," Proctor said. "Just something I've done in the past."
Proctor, who said he couldn't remember if the fire worked when he was struggling in Triple-A, pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings in the Yankees' 11-5 loss to Oakland on Sunday. He got a mixed reaction from the Yankee Stadium crowd when he entered in the eighth inning.
He had allowed six runs and 10 hits in his previous 4 1-3 innings.
Wow. Six runs in 4 1/3 innings (a 12.46 ERA) is actually pretty good for Gary McJeffsky (who has a 15.88 ERA) and all in a day's work for most other Reds' relievers.
If Proctor burned his glove, what should be burned to right the Reds' bullpen?
In a departure from tradition, boobs is not a choice in the poll, although you can write him (or anyone else) in.
