Mariano Rivera: Spitball King?

In news that first broke from our friend Rev at Halos Heaven, it seems as if future Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera used a new pitch last night: a spitball.

Here's the video:

EDIT: Video was taken off the Inter-Web. Dang.

Judge for yourself, Red Sox fans. In my opinion, just by judging how he handles himself (looking around, down at the ball, etc.), I think he spit on the ball. And the question isn't, "so what? Nothing happened in that inning anyway." It is, "how long has the greatest closer in baseball history been throwing a spitball?"

(Oh, and if you didn't already know, the spitball was banned by MLB in the 1920s.)
