MLB baseball pitchers have been using a lot of pine tar lately. Pitchers have struck out many batters without pine tar, so why the sudden use? What do you think?

Why did you post that? And give me an answer on if you think MLB pitchers SHOULD or SHOULD NOT be allowed to use pine tar.

I think they shouldn't it is wrong baseball is for the love of the game not the cheating. Cheating is wrong and people do it thinking they will win but NO THEY WON'T THEY WILL ALWAYS LOSE!!!

Reasons for voting decision: I'm not sure Con had a solid idea of how this whole "debate" thing works. He never posted a case and, as he's got the presumptive BoP, that lack of case hands the win to Pro. Nothing else seemed to warrant scoring. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
