MLB Clears Astros of Any Wrongdoing in Sign-Stealing Scandal

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

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

Bradley delivered the knockout punch to the Astros with the biggest hit of his career, making it an 8-2 lead for Boston to all but wrap up a victory in Game 3 and guaranteeing that the Red Sox can not lose this series without at least making a trip back home to Fenway Park first. If he misses this catch, the Red Sox likely lose. According to Houston's president of baseball operations Jeff Luhnow, the employee was monitoring the Red Sox dugout for indicators that the Sox were attempting to steal signs from the Astros. The incident isn't expected to amount to anything more than a fine for Houston, according to a report from ESPN.

Game 5 will be played Thursday night in Houston, where ace Justin Verlander will pitch for the Astros.

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. The man, who did not have a credential, had a small camera and was texting frequently, per the report.

An unidentified man, who had been issued a credential before the October 8 game in Cleveland, was removed from an area near Boston's dugout for taking photos during Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday, according to a report by Metro Boston and Yahoo Sports. The man was allowed to remain in the stadium but was not allowed back into the media area.

Security sources say they had been warned about the man, because of some suspicious activity in Houston's ALDS series against the Cleveland Indians. It's still fishy and the league told the Astros not to do that anymore and report it to the proper authorities. He said he was making sure the Red Sox weren't trying to steal signs.

"I'm always concerned about (sign stealing) throughout the season", Cora told reporters after the win. "So I mean we do a good job changing sequences". Hoynes notes in his column that Cleveland worked so diligently to protect its signs in the weeks leading up to the ALDS that the efforts "bordered on paranoia". We try to slow it down.

"I'm aware of something going on, but I haven't been briefed", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said after Tuesday's Game 3. Dombrowski said there are "a lot more steps that are attached to this" before adding, "I think it's partially closed, but I don't think it's all the way closed".
