Astros Accused Of Cheating

Major League Baseball has a cheating controversy that it is investigating.

A man that is said to be an employee of the Houston Astros was spotted with a small camera and was sending multiple texts near the Boston Red Sox dugout during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.  The man was eventually removed from the media area by security at Fenway Park but was not ejected from the stadium.

There are reports that the Red Sox were warned about this person in question after the Astros defeated the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS.  According to NBC Sports Boston, the Indians themselves were the ones who alerted the Red Sox about the Astros employee.

Cleveland filed a complaint with MLB concerning the Astros trying to film inside the Indians dugout during Game 3 of the ALDS at Progressive Field.  It is also reported that multiple Astros employees were removed from Progressive Field’s camera area during Game 3.

The person in question has been identified by multiple media outlets as Kyle McLaughlin.  While he is not listed publicly as an Astros employee, photos on his Instagram account shows him wearing an Astros ID badge while he posed for pictures in 2016 with Houston’s owner Jim Crane.  Tuesday evening, McLaughlin removed “Houston Astros” from his biography on his Instagram page.

MLB has reviewed the situation with the Red Sox and has found that the Houston employee was watching the Red Sox to see if they were improperly using a video monitor during Game 1 and the league does not consider it a major issue.

While the Astros did not officially comment, manager AJ Hinch said following Game 3 of the ALCS to the media when asked about it, “I’m aware of something going on but I haven’t been briefed.  I’m worried about the game.”

Alex Cora, Boston’s manager, served on Hinch’s staff last year in Houston as the bench coach, he was asked Tuesday if he thought the Astros were stealing signs.  Cora said, “No, I don’t.”

Houston won Game 1 by a score of 7-2, though the Red Sox took the next two games and now lead the ALCS two games to one.

Security was beefed up by MLB at Game 3 on Tuesday.  The league sent three people from its baseball operations office and another six security personnel to monitor the game, evening stationing an employee in each teams’ video-review room.

While paranoia is high in MLB over sign stealing, the one thing we don’t have to worry about is deflated balls.

***UPDATE*** MLB released a statement on Wednesday in response to the possible cheating controversy which involved the Astros, clearing them of any wrongdoing in the process.

"Before the postseason began, a number of clubs called the commissioner's office about sign stealing and the inappropriate use of video equipment," according to the statement. "The concerns expressed related to a number of clubs, not any one specific club. In response to these calls, the commissioner's office reinforced the existing rules with all playoff clubs and undertook proactive measures, including instituting a new prohibition on the use of certain in-stadium cameras, increasing the presence of operations and security personnel from Major League Baseball at all postseason games and instituting a program of monitoring club video rooms."

According to the Astros GM, Jeff Luhnow, they were “playing defense” by keeping an eye on their opponent.  He also added that the Red Sox weren’t doing anything inappropriate.
