Stephen Strasburg, embarrassed or didn't really get BENGAY on his balls?

We said that Stephen Strasburg seemed embarrassed about all the Hot Stuff junk Davey Johnson was talking. Washington Nationals slugger Michael Morse went on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio today and, here's the rub, he claims he doesn't know a thing about SS' fire crotch:

“I asked Stephen today and he has no idea what’s going on. And he’s one of the hardest-working guys, he’s like a bulldog, especially on the mind. It’s, like, a big rumor or something that started. There’s all this talk that he had Icy Hot all over him or whatever. He had nothing. I think, um, I think Davey might have said some things that the media might have took the wrong way. You know, I think he was trying to make, like, you know, a joke or something and the media thought different of it.

“It was pouring rain in the first inning, so he should have said, maybe, his jersey got soaked or something. I don’t know, I think he said the wrong thing. I talked to Stras today and he’s kind of upset about the whole thing. I asked him, ‘Did you have Icy Hot or something?’ and he said no. I said ‘You didn’t have any on your arm? Maybe the rain washed it down or off?’ and he said no.”

“I can’t really tell you what the problem was, but some Hot Stuff got misplaced,” manager Davey Johnson said. “It was on his shoulder and evidently – I don’t know how it got to where it got, but it was uncomfortable, to say the least.”

How does one take that the wrong way?
