Accusations of sign stealing fail to add up

  • Red Sox star Pedroia says why such a fuss over sign stealing

The Red Sox provided the Major League Baseball commissioner's office evidence that the New York Yankees had a YES Network camera on bench coach Gary DiSarcina, ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting. But using electronic devices for communication in the dugout is prohibited, and, according to Manfred, that's the violation at issue in this case. Although it feels like cheating, they didn't break any rules technically there. "Let's face it, we get who's hot, who's not and who are you going to pick to attack in tight situations". Keep in mind, this all needs to take place between pitches of a baseball game. They countersue. Pedroia, like Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski a day earlier, pointed out there is an investigation looking into the Yankees as well. These players then signaled teammates on the field about what pitch to anticipate, allowing the Red Sox to predict what the Yankees had planned.

The system was uncovered by the Yankees themselves, who videotaped the process during a three-game series at Fenway Park last month.

Playing just 18 hours after completing a 3-2 victory that lasted six hours and ended on Hanley Ramirez's bloop single, the Red Sox took charge with a four-run fourth that was capped by Bradley's home run. So whatever Major League Baseball [determines], I'm sure it's - I know the players on both sides I'm sure, probably don't think it's from them. "Our adjustment to that stuff is to go out to the mound and change the signs".

Some sides have had clubhouse attendants quickly relay information to the dugout from the personnel monitoring video feeds. "We're here to play baseball games", Pedroia said.

"When you have the kind of rivalry that the Yankees and Red Sox have", Manfred said in Boston, "I guess it's not shocking you could have charges and counter-charges like this".

Kay added: "I would know, I would have heard if this was something YES was involved in".

Boston manager John Farrell told reporters at Fenway Park that the team was conducting an "ongoing" investigation about what happened and Pedroia downplayed the accusations.The second baseman said: "Obviously, I played against the Yankees for 11 years. We are pleased that Apple's groundbreaking products, which have already improved the access that fans have to our sport, will now inform the decisions that make our games interesting and exciting throughout the year".

Pedroia is among the players who is being implicated in helping steal signs. "People are trying to win it however they can".

There were three Kahnle changeups in particular that would raise suspicion that Red Sox hitters knew was type of pitch was coming.

I don't know what a suitable punishment should be, but even if it's not too serious, it should be more than a "slap on the wrist". "If the sign-stealing is effective, the opposition is going to suspect what is happening", he wrote in his memoir. I moved on to publishing Title Town on the sports network, where I also regularly hosted the popular podcast, Sports Roundup.
