It’s been said that the Internet never forgets.

But now it seems that neither do athletes from competing teams.

And the Blue Jays’ Alek Manoah has some fighting words for this New York Yankee.

Blue Jays ace Alek Manoah passed up all the usual suspects in a new accusation.

It wasn’t Alex Rodriguez, Mark McGwire or Barry Bonds, like many others would say.

No, Manoah has called out Yankees star pitcher Gerrit Cole as being the “worst cheater” in the history of the MLB.

The exchange happened on the latest episode of Sportsnet’s “How Hungry Are You?” mini-feature where Manoah joined NBA star Serge Ibaka to avoid drinking a cricket-filled, tea-like concoction.

Manoah unflinchingly told the NBA star, “He cheated. He used a lot of, like, sticky stuff to make his pitches better. And he kinda got called out on it.”

In 2021, the MLB began to get tough on the use of foreign substances in baseball.

Many around the league believed it really affected Cole, who some thought had relied on it all heavily.

Even Josh Donaldson, now Cole’s teammate, specifically called him out when he was a Minnesota Twins and said he could see Cole’s spin rates dramatically drop following the league’s ruling.

For the record, Cole never actually denied using sticky stuff to make his baseballs move more, telling media members in 2021, “I don’t quite know how to answer that, to be honest.”

Manoah and Cole had a falling out in August, as things kicked off between the two All-Star pitchers after outfielder Aaron Judge was hit by an inside fastball.

Luckily nothing serious transpired, aside from some shouting back and forth.

The Blue Jays will visit the Bronx from April 21-23.

Hopefully, everyone will be treated to a Manoah-Cole matchup.

Manoah, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound pitcher has said that he would want teammate Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – who stands 6-foot-2, 250 pounds by his side if he ever got into a fight.

Last season, Manoah logged 196.2 innings over 31 starts, posting a 2.24 ERA and a 3.35 FIP during his second big-league season.

He was also worth a career-best 4.1 fWAR.

Cole had an All-Star season in 2022, logging 257 strikeouts in 200.2 innings with a 3.50 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.
