Major League Baseball says the Astros were definitely not cheating

Major League Baseball says the Astros were definitely not cheating

In the third inning of the first game of the series, security removed a man claiming to be an Astros employee from the media-credentialed area next to the Boston Red Sox dugout, according to multiple security sources who were on the scene at the time of the incident.

"I'm always concerned about that throughout the season", Cora said after Boston's Game 3 win over Houston.

According to the New York Post, the Astros had an employee monitoring the Red Sox's dugout in Game 1 to see if they were illegally using a video monitor.

Nothing the Astros do would be considered a surprise to the Red Sox, since manager Alex Cora served as Houston's bench coach a year ago.

A man wearing a Houston Astros media credential was removed from the camera bay of American League Division Series Game 3 against the Cleveland Indians, Andy Baskin of 92.3 the Fan reported Tuesday.

According to Yahoo, a pair of Major League Baseball players claimed to have witnessed the Astros banging a trash can in the dugout in recent years, ostensibly to indicate to the hitter what the upcoming pitch would be. "We consider the matter closed". Passan also details a complaint filed by the Athletics, who alleged that the Astros were using a clapping-based system from the dugout to relay stolen signs to the players on the field during an August game. McLaughlin was removed by security in Cleveland as well.

Stealing signs is nothing new in baseball. Red Sox manager (and former Astros bench coach) Alex Cora agreed. The man was not allowed back into the credentialed area, but was allowed to remain in the ballpark.

On Wednesday, MLB released a statement saying the league was alerted to possible sign stealing schemes and other improper use of video equipment prior to the postseason, and thus implemented additional security measures.

So it's really not surprising at all that he reacted the way he did when former teammate Jackie Bradley Jr. blew Game 3 open for the Red Sox with an eighth-inning grand slam.

"The competitive edges nowadays are so narrow".

Perhaps the greater issue in all of this, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston writes, is Major League Baseball's lack of transparency on matters of this regard. "And whether that's pitch tipping, pitch sequencing, changing your signs, changing your location of your defenders - this is a bigger topic that's going to take a lot more time than an overnight story and concern and people's curiosities".
