Astros under scrutiny in sign-stealing controversy against Red Sox

Report: Astros possibly caught cheating in ALCS Game 1 REPORT: Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS

Dombrowski told reporters he agreed that the man in the camera well was not stealing signs, but he did not appreciate that the Red Sox were accused of cheating by the Astros during MLB's investigation. Picard reached out to the Major League Baseball, which acknowledged the incident from the Houston Astros-Boston Red Sox game. "We consider the matter closed". The incident and the investigation were first reported Tuesday during ALCS Game 3 by Metro Boston.

According to Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com, an employee of the Astros, holding a cellphone camera, was removed twice by security from the photographer's pit next to the Indians' dugout during Game 3 on October 8. The report said the man had a small camera and was texting frequently, but did not have a media credential. The man was allowed to remain in the stadium but was not allowed back into the media area.

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 the Red Sox deep into the postseason and now facing the equally analytically minded Astros, those little edges come at a premium.

Asked if he thought anything untoward was going on at Fenway Park during Games 1 and 2, Cora said, "No, I don't".

"Before the Postseason began, a number of Clubs called the Commissioner's Office about sign stealing and the inappropriate use of video equipment". "So we do a good job of changing sequences and paying attention to details". "We try to slow it down".

No details were immediately released about the talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. Saudi officials have not responded to repeated requests for comment from The Associated Press in recent days.

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. Red Sox manager (and former Astros bench coach) Alex Cora agreed.

"I'm always concerned about [sign-stealing] throughout the season", Cora said after the game.

Game 7 (if necessary): Sunday, Oct. 21: Astros at Red Sox, 6:39 p.m.

The statement says their thorough investigation showed the person who was watching the Indians' dugout was just making sure Cleveland was not cheating.

Making matters more suspicious, McLaughlin may have already been on the team's mind, as the Cleveland Indians are believed to have warned the Sox ahead of time to keep their eyes on the guy, according to Yahoo!.
