MLB Clears Astros of Any Wrongdoing in Sign-Stealing Scandal

Noah Ferguson | 18 October, 2018, 16:57

Down 2-1 in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series, the Houston Astros have been dealt another blow - a complaint filed to Major League Baseball alleging a man associated with the Astros surreptitiously tried filming the Indians' dugout during a playoff game last week. With a 2-1 lead in games, Boston has ensured that this series will return to Fenway Park for a Game 6 - unless the Red Sox can win out in Games 4 and 5.

He stood out because he was wearing a suit jacket in a restricted area reserved for photographers, a member of the team's social media department and where TV reporters are permitted to stand, one of the sources said. So the Astros have that going for them.

The utilization of technology in sign-stealing efforts isn't likely to go away, and it'll continue to force teams and players into more rigorous efforts to protect signs. And we don't get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs.

MLB Chief Communications Officer Pat Courtney acknowledged Saturday night's incident in an email on Tuesday afternoon, saying, "We are aware of the matter and it will be handled internally".

The Indians entered the series concerned the Astros, who have been suspected of cheating in the past, had stolen some signs or had other useful information about them, one person said.

But Price can ensure a Game 6 never happens.

After the Indians lost the American League Division Series to the Astros in a three-game sweep last week, Cleveland said a man was seen with a cellphone standing by the photographer's pit at Progressive Field, the Indians' home park, October 8.

When presented with the details of the incident and the warning given to security heading into Game 1, a Red Sox spokesman said on Tuesday, "It is an Major League Baseball matter, so no one from the Red Sox would be commenting".

Manager Alex Cora chose Kimbrel, who had struggled mightily of late, to complete a six-out save, something the closer had never done before in his career with over 337 regular and postseason saves. 'I'm anxious about the game'.

The Red Sox Game 3 win in Houston lasted almost four hours, which is long for a baseball game, although postseason contests are often so lengthy. The Red Sox, for example, were seen calling out Luis Severino's pitches during the ALDS.
