Major League Baseball investigates suspected Astros cheating in ALCS Game 1

While he doesn't cite specific teams that have been placed under the microscope, it's worth remembering that the Red Sox themselves were fined in 2017 for illegal use of an Apple Watch in the dugout in an effort to steal signs from the division-rival Yankees. A Tony Kemp fourth inning home run gave Houston their first lead of the game at 4-3, but a Jackie Bradley Jr. two-run bomb gave Boston a 6-5 advantage in the sixth.

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.

Major League Baseball is investigating the Houston Astros after a man affiliated with the team appeared to be shooting video of the Boston Red Sox during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. According to the Boston Metro, which first reported the story, a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from the media-credentialed area next to the Red Sox dugout.

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.

Scott Miller says sign stealing is all people have been talking about. It's arguable that these tactics are of in the spirit of more "traditional" sign-stealing methods that have been employed for decades (e.g. runner on second base looking in on a catcher's signs), though the advent of technology obviously presents new methods of gaining that edge - methods that exist in what is at best an ethical gray area. On that note sign stealing is a common practice in baseball, and somewhat easily done due to the down time in games that allow for keen observation. Players, too, recognize the need for increased caution. And we don't get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs.

These Red Sox seem to treat imposing road locales with the same laissez-faire attitude that Rocky Balboa treated Russian Federation when he took on Ivan Drago. Sports, the Indians warned the Red Sox of the scheme before the ALCS. By watching the other dugout, he broke the rules to make sure the other team wasn't breaking the rules, basically.
