Twitter Reacts To Boston Red Sox Cheating, Apple Watch Scandal

  • BOSTON MA – AUGUST 19 Chris Sale

According to reports, the Red Sox admitted to using an Apple Watch to steal the Yankees' signals.

It's not clear exactly how all this went down but the report says Boston's Major League Baseball team has admitted to investigators that the team's trainers use their Apple Watches to pass information to players about the opposing team's hand signals during some games.

The report said Yankees general manager Brain Cashman filed a complaint with the commissioner's office that included video the Yankees took of the Red Sox dugout.

When contacted by the commissioner's office, the Red Sox confessed that their trainers had been relaying information from video personnel to players.

For now, the most important thing for Red Sox brass to do is get ahead of the message, according to a crisis management expert who was following the news as it broke.

A tough loss for Tech, but an upbeat outlook all the same
Tennessee is officially 107-59-4 (.630) all-time in night games (those beginning after 6:00pm local time). He ran 44 times for 249 yards and scored five touchdowns, the latter two both school records.

Remember the Friday night game, when Mitch Moreland lined that bases-loaded single to center on an 0-2 changeup from Tommy Kahnle that put the Red Sox ahead in the seventh inning and essentially won the game for them?

The Red Sox in turn accused the Yankees of doing basically the same thing, saying the team used cameras from its YES network to steal opponents' signs. All I know is that, if they were also using AirPods, someone probably would've noticed.

"It's always been a game within a game, but the use of electronics takes it too far", Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner told reporters on Tuesday.

In the old days, the only reliable way to intercept signs was to have a runner on second base who could look at which signs the pitcher was getting and try to relay them to the batter.

Boston leads the American League Eastern Division with the Yankees now in second place.

The Boston Red Sox baseball franchise is under investigation after it's alleged they cheated by using technology in an illegal manner. Sign stealing on its own isn't strictly illegal, according to the Major League Baseball, and as veteran slugger and former Philadelphia Phillie Matt Stairs once said: "It's not cheating, it's just trying".

Stealing signs by analogue means - such as a team mate at second base seeing the catcher and revealing the signal to the batter opposite - is legal.

MLB investigators are said to have discovered that the storied baseball team was using the wearable to relay which pitch the opposing team would throw next.

The Sox sit atop the AL East division entering Tuesday with the Yankees right behind them.
