Astros possibly caught cheating in ALCS Game 1

Neither the Astros nor the Red Sox seem concerned about Instagram

Making matters more suspicious, McLaughlin may have already been on the team's mind, as the Cleveland Indians are believed to have warned the Sox ahead of time to keep their eyes on the guy, according to Yahoo!. McLaughlin was removed by security in Cleveland as well. The Indians were swept by the Astros in the ALDS. He's not listed as an official Astros employee, however, his Instagram account features photos of him wearing an Astros ID badge and standing next to a team-owned private plane.

Stealing signs is nothing new in baseball.

"I'm always concerned about (sign stealing) throughout the season", Cora told reporters after the win.

However, new technology may have given teams an unfair advantage as the use of high-definition, high-speed cameras allows teams to peer where they couldn't before. The use of electronic devices is prohibited. The man was removed from the area "several times" by security personnel, a source told The Associated Press. The man, who did not have a credential, had a small camera and was texting frequently.

MLB Chief Communications Officer Pat Courtney acknowledged Saturday night's incident in an email on Tuesday afternoon, saying, "We are aware of the matter and it will be handled internally". ESPN's Buster Olney pointed out the Red Sox were using multiple signs with the bases empty to avoid having their signs stolen, though they did that long before their series with Houston.

"I'm not going to get into any specifics about any teams or organizations or whatever, but there's long since, the last few years, been rumblings of places that you need to be aware of stuff", Astros starter Justin Verlander said before Wednesday's Game 4.

With the Red Sox deep into the postseason and now facing the equally analytically minded Astros, those little edges come at a premium. "I'm going to keep it really short". 'They'll do what they have to do.

Sign-stealing has been an issue all series.

According to Yahoo, a pair of Major League Baseball players claimed to have witnessed the Astros banging a trash can in the dugout in recent years, ostensibly to indicate to the hitter what the upcoming pitch would be.

In 2017, an Major League Baseball investigation concluded that the Red Sox orchestrated a scheme to illicitly steal opponents' catchers hand signals during games with the help of an Apple Watch.

Verlander suggested that an idea he presented to the MLB Players Association for hastening pace of play could also mitigate teams' efforts to swipe signals: Some sort of wireless earpiece, like quarterbacks wear in the National Football League, allowing pitchers, catchers and managers to confer without mound visits.

Cora was asked about the situation after Boston's 8-2 win in Game 3.
