Astros possibly caught cheating in ALCS Game 1

Oct 12 2018 Boston MA Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Chris Sale speaks to the media prior to the ALCS against the Houston Astros at Fenway Park

Cora said he has been concerned throughout the season about Red Sox signs being stolen. The concerns expressed related to a number of Clubs, not any one specific Club. Just because he's doing postseason analysis for Fox Sports 1 doesn't mean he's going to hide the fact that he's very clearly rooting for the Boston Red Sox against the Houston Astros.

That directly contradicts MLB's statement on the matter, which ended with the phrase "we consider the matter closed". The report said the man had a small camera and was texting frequently, but did not have a media credential. Teams regularly change their signs during games, and the surge in mound visits in recent years was believed to be largely attributable to the effort to prevent sign-stealing, and led Major League Baseball to institute a limit on mound visits this season.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Astros deployed McLaughlin to monitor whether the Red Sox were cheating on their side of the field.

Dave Dombrowski doesn't think MLB's investigation into the Astros has been closed. McLaughlin was removed by security in Cleveland and Boston, according to the report.

The defending champions came under scrutiny after Cleveland filed a complaint about a man associated with Houston attempting to photograph or video the Indians' dugout last week. To this point, though, there's been no word on whether Houston was punished in that incident. The Indians have filed a complaint with the Major League Baseball about the Astros over an incident of suspected cheating during Game 3 of the ALDS. "The series of complaints against the Astros, Sherman notes, could stem in part from a reputation in the industry that portrays them as a "[New England] Patriots-like" organization - that is, one that "pushes to the limits of the rules - and perhaps beyond". The Yankees, too, were also fined for violating a rule pertaining to the use of the dugout phone, and there have been similar reports that other teams believe the Yankees use the YES Network to steal signs from opponents.

Scott Miller says sign stealing is all people have been talking about.

In particular, the league seems to be implying that sign-stealing and general spying are running rampant across baseball. "If we feel there's something going on we switch the signs". Teams routinely try to gain an advantage by trying to detect patterns, whether it's a catcher showing signs to a pitcher on the mound or a third-base coach relaying signs to a batter. Players, too, recognize the need for increased caution. "So when we go into an opposing ballpark, we tend to look around and make sure that we don't see any suspicious activity", Luhnow told reporters Wednesday at Minute Maid Park prior to Game 4 of the series. The game sequences, the signals that you come up with are insane.

The incident was first reported late Tuesday afternoon by Metro Boston.
