Houston Astros Employee Accused Of Suspicious Activity During Game 1 vs. Red Sox

The Houston Astros, like many Machado, are doing everything possible in the last two days or so to ruin their reputation.

Security sources say they had been warned about the man, because of some suspicious activity in Houston's ALDS series against the Cleveland Indians.

A man claiming to be an Astros employee was reportedly removed from the media-credentialed area next to the Red Sox dugout.

Metro reported on Tuesday that security removed a man claiming to be an Astros employee from the media credentialed area next to the Red Sox dugout in Game 1. All Clubs remaining in the playoffs have been notified to refrain from these types of efforts and to direct complaints about any in-stadium rules violations to Major League Baseball staff for investigation and resolution.

"Before the Postseason began, a number of Clubs called the Commissioner's Office about sign stealing and the inappropriate use of video equipment". Whether he'll start Game 5 of the AL Championship Series remains to be seen. The Cleveland Indians declined comment. The man's credential was requested by Houston, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Theresa May said nothing 'substantially new' in Brexit address
The prime minister will be in Brussels until Friday in an attempt to make progress in Brexit negotiations. They added: "For now, EU27 is not planning to organise an extraordinary summit on Brexit in November".

Cora said before the game that Sale, the potential starter Thursday night, might throw a bullpen during Game 3. Clevinger allowed one run and three hits in five innings, but took the loss as the Indians were pounded 11-3. "A lot of things", Clevinger said when asked what happened. "I'm going to keep it really short". But I just heard today'.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said his team adjusts if it believes signs have been stolen. Teams regularly change their signs during games, and the surge in mound visits in recent years was believed to be largely attributable to the effort to prevent sign-stealing, and led Major League Baseball to institute a limit on mound visits this season. "We try to slow it down and if we feel there's something going on, we try to switch the signs". And then we'll go from there, " Cora said. On that note sign stealing is a common practice in baseball, and somewhat easily done due to the down time in games that allow for keen observation.

But the Astros may be the first team to ever get away with the "we were spying to make sure they weren't spying" excuse.

There have been previous suspicions about the Astros.

Earlier this season, Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer intimated on Twitter that Houston's pitchers may have been using banned substances to improve the spin on their pitches.
