Mistakes Lead to 8-2 Astros Loss in Game 3


Cora added: "I'm always concerned about that throughout the season".

While it's yet to be proven if the Astros were doing anything illegal, the two incidents have raised further questions about the use of electronic equipment during games and whether Houston has been cheating. A thorough investigation concluded that an Astros employee was monitoring the field to ensure that the opposing Club was not violating any rules.

Major League Baseball has told all clubs still in the playoffs "to refrain from these types of efforts". "We consider the matter closed".

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

Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who served as bench coach for the Astros last season, also addressed the topic. "And we don't get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs", he said.

In 2017, an Major League Baseball investigation concluded that the Red Sox orchestrated a scheme to illicitly steal opponents' catchers hand signals during games with the help of an Apple Watch. "... The game is changing". You see a lot of pitchers and catchers get crossed up now - it's insane. "You've just got to stay in tune with everything".

The incident was first reported late Tuesday afternoon by Metro Boston. As Drellich examines, the lack of clear rules in place and the unnecessarily hushed manner in which the league handles such scenarios only incentivizes teams to continue rule-bending/breaking and to make accusations in the first place.
