Report: Cubs never filed protest over Sean Doolittle’s delivery

Joe Maddon

The Chicago Cubs made a lot of noise Saturday night about filing a protest over a perceived illegal toe-tap in Sean Doolittle’s delivery, but they reportedly never actually did it.

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Cubs never formally filed a protest after the loss, and they may not do so at all with the league believing that Doolittle’s delivery is legal.

In other news, the situation was a whole lot of nothing. Doolittle may well have had a point when he seemed to suggest that Cubs manager Joe Maddon was just trying to get in his head by protesting, as the lack of follow-up indicates that they either backed away from the idea quickly or were never serious about it to begin with.
