Yes, this is an outrage and shakes the game to it's core. I'm disgusted as a fan.


Naw, they've already pulled out the hilarious "Dombrowski and Farrell had no idea this was going on!" excuse.

The trainer involved will get thrown under the bus and maybe fined or suspended or fired. Everyone else will get away with it.

Maybe they'll lose a draft pick or something.


I mean Dombrowski, maybe, but there's no way Farrell would have been unaware of this.


Exactly. Players and trainers were literally running around relaying signals in the dugout. He would have to be beyond clueless not to have known.

No doubt the Sox broke the rules, but if this finally unearths the long rumored Yanks' use of the YES network cam then it will be interesting. At least the rivalry is renewed, coupled with the CC fat story via Jim Ed and the bunting....

http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/2060 ... teal-signs

Source: Red Sox say they have video evidence of Yanks using YES camera to steal signs

The Boston Red Sox have presented to the commissioner's office what they say is video evidence of the YES Network maintaining a fixed camera on bench coach Gary DiSarcina during a recent game at Yankee Stadium, a source told ESPN.

That particular camera shot was one of those that the Red Sox received in their video room feed, and according to a source, they were so concerned about it -- and about whether it was being used to steal signs from DiSarcina -- that they had their bench coach alter his position in the dugout.

Commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed Tuesday that the Red Sox used electronic communication from the dugout to steal opponents' signs and relay them to Boston players during games.

Rob Manfred on Red Sox investigation: There's no rule against sign stealing
The commissioner addressed MLB's ongoing look into the complaint filed by the Yankees and what factors would be considered in determining punishment.

Everything you need to know about sign-stealing
Did Boston actually break the rules? Will there be punishment? Here are the answers to the questions driving the Red Sox-Yankees investigation.
An industry source also indicated that the Red Sox were aware of that particular camera angle being used by the New York Yankees on at least one other occasion, but that this time they had captured the images that were forwarded to the commissioner's office.

Sources also indicated on Wednesday afternoon that as this issue began to fester in recent weeks, the hope of the commissioner's office was that the rivals would keep their sign-stealing allegations under wraps and out of public consumption.

But the New York Times broke the news Tuesday afternoon of the Yankees' allegations of the Red Sox stealing signs, exposing a story that now promises to hang over the two teams well into 2018.

The Times reported that the Red Sox admitted to Major League Baseball they used an Apple Watch to steal signals from opposing catchers -- including the Yankees -- and relay them to Boston players. While swiping signs has long been part of the game, using electronic devices to do it is against the rules.

MLB is looking into the allegations levied. Commissioner Rob Manfred, who was at Fenway Park on Tuesday night as part of a previously planned visit, said he wanted to get the matter resolved quickly. He didn't comment about possible penalties.

Eck and Remy ignoring O'Brien all game and reliving the late 1970s is everything to me.

I believe they tried him out at this like 15 years ago and he was just as bad then.

I'd think by now, anyone who played for the Sox in the late 90s/early aughts and is any good at broadcasting, is probably already doing it.

I LOVED Todd Walker, I wish they'd bring him back when Eck is out.
