Open Thread, 8/27: Padres vs Diamondbacks

What if Major League Baseball suddenly discovered that every single baseball that had been used since 1923 actually was manufactured in a Central American prison that used the human hides of criminals that had been put to death?

I'm thinking it would take at least 3 years for Bud Selig to talk the baseball "purists" into using a different material. It would take another 2 years to talk pitchers into using something different. The pitchers would say crazy things like, "I can't throw a splitter the same way unless I'm using baseballs made from human hide!"
