This time, it’s Boston’s beloved Red Sox. According to an exclusive report, the Red Sox have been caught using electronic devices to steal signs from the New York Yankees.

According to reports, a member of the Red Sox training staff would use an Apple Watch to illegally transmit information to players–tipping them off about what pitches were coming.
The complaint was filed two weeks ago by Yankees GM Brian Cashman, who had video of the illicit practice–and today was corroborated by Major League Baseball and the Commissioner’s Office.
It’s surprising the Red Sox find themselves needing to cheat off the Yankees–especially considering how little respect they seem to have for their rivals.
The Red Sox are scoundrels who have cheated the game but they did it to the Yankees so I’m pretty cool with it
