Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS

Why two best teams in baseball aren’t putting up classic series

Wow. What a game, what a win for the Boston Red Sox.

Major League Baseball confirmed in a statement it was also aware of a report by Metro Boston that a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from a credentialed area near the Boston Red Sox dugout during the ALCS opener at Fenway Park. It's allowed, as long as teams only use their eyes. Doing such things without technology is surely done by every team in some way, as signs aren't changed often enough and pitchers tip their pitches at times. The incident isn't expected to amount to anything more than a fine for Houston, according to a report from ESPN.

Sign-stealing has always been a part of baseball, but technological advances have created complications.

After being asked about the man claiming to be an Astros' employee and the warning given to the Red Sox, an Indians spokesman said via email on Tuesday, "We are not going to comment on this situation".

Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who served as bench coach for the Astros last season, also addressed the topic.

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. 'I'm anxious about the game'. 'They'll do what they have to do.

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey open to top six Premier League move
Granit Xhaka has paid tribute to Arsenal boss Unai Emery and feels the Spaniard has already improved him as a player. Ramsey, 27, is out of contract at the end of the season and has seen the offer of a new deal rescinded by Arsenal .

According to Yahoo, a pair of Major League Baseball players claimed to have witnessed the Astros banging a trash can in the dugout in recent years, ostensibly to indicate to the hitter what the upcoming pitch would be.

The Red Sox closer has attributed his unusual mound ritual - in which he bends down low toward the plate to get the catcher's signs, while extending out and dangling his right arm - to biceps tendonitis he got in 2010 that made it too painful to hold his arm behind his back.

"Before the Postseason began, a number of Clubs called the Commissioner's Office about sign stealing and the inappropriate use of video equipment".

Boston Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., left, and left fielder Andrew Benintendi seen here. Porcello has gone back and forth between the rotation and the bullpen this postseason, working in relief in Game 1 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees before pitching five solid innings and locking up the decision as Boston clinched that series in Game 4 at Yankee Stadium on October 9.

Whatever the Houston Astros were trying to do at Fenway Park during Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday night, they got caught. David Price, who was warming up in the bullpen late in Game 4, will start for Boston on three days' rest after Chris Sale was ruled out Wednesday while recovering from a stomach illness. For Price, his long-awaited first postseason win as a starter.
