Video of alleged Valverde spitball

The Tigers came into Cincinnati over the weekend and promptly won the series two games to one. However, it appears as though they may have done it in, quite literally, dirty fashion. Here's video footage of Detroit closer Jose Valverde spitting a loogie into his glove and then firing strike three to home plate during the ninth inning of Sunday's 7-6 Reds loss. So, was it a spitball in your opinion?

A quick FYI: spitballs are illegal in MLB and have been since 1920.
