How talk of the Red Sox's high-tech sign-stealing antics sparks conversation

Kahnle's comments came after a bombshell New York Times report said Major League Baseball was considering punishment for the Red Sox after its investigators determined they were using electronics to steal signs from the Yankees during a recent series at Fenway Park. An inquiry was launched into the matter about two weeks ago after Yankees' general manager Brian Cashman filed a complaint with the commissioner's office.

The Times said the Red Sox told Major League Baseball investigators that club personnel watched monitors and then electronically sent pitch signals to team trainers in the dugout, who relayed the information to players.

The Times reports that Red Sox personnel admitted to the cheating when confronted by the baseball commissioner's investigators, and confirmed that the scheme had been in place "for several weeks".

The Red Sox, in turn, filed a complaint claiming the Yankees used cameras from YES, the team's television network, to steal signs during games.

Of all teams to complain to the commissioners office about the Red Sox, it just had to be the Yankees. While Manfred has said no wins will be vacated from the Red Sox record (a discipline that would be far too great while also a ridiculous idea), expect a heavy fine along with perhaps the loss of draft picks coming Boston's way.

Beyond that Kahnle-Moreland at-bat, in fact, the Yankees became suspicious of the success Boston hitters had against their bullpen over the six games the teams played in mid-August, four of them won by the Red Sox.

"I'm not going to get into the specifics of that", he said.

The rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees is taking another twist, with each team accusing the other of using technology to steal signs during games.

How were the Red Sox caught? A runner on second base will often attempt to figure out the catcher's signs to gain a tactical advantage by relaying the signs to the batter. But this is not good, and could end up being a scar on a season that right now has the Boston leading the AL East, a few games ahead of NY.

Boston leads the American League Eastern Division with the Yankees now in second place. These players then signaled teammates on the field about what pitch to anticipate, allowing the Red Sox to predict what the Yankees had planned.

Nor did the Red Sox or the New York Yankees - the team whose complaint provoked the probe. With only a month left in baseball's regular season, the Red Sox cling to a slim lead over the Yankees in the AL East.
