To say Dustin Pedroia isn't sweating it would be an understatement. They are 40-26 in games played at Fenway Park, and 37-35 on the road. "We've got a 3.5 game lead in our division (to start play)". Other than that, nobody gives a (expletive).

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

"Still, there is a little bit of a line there that you can't cross", said Allen, referring to the use of electronics on the bench. "I know we have iPads in the dugout". And I didn't miss out on a single thing. "Are we not supposed to have iPads in there?"

If Pedroia came out and declared his innocence, he'd be taking a big risk if, in fact, he is in the wrong.

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported 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. And they basically were able to relay that information to the - to a runner on second base who was then able to pick up the signs and relay to the hitter the type of pitch that was coming.

Was Pedroia up to no good? "I guess it depends how you do it".

The second baseman said he was just working on getting himself healthier.

Even if it's proven that one or both clubs cheated, it doesn't seem like this is going to snowball into SpyGate 2.0. "I was talking to the trainer about what time I'm rehabbing the next day". "It was his mouthguard". "No, I don't", he said defiantly.

The fans who stuck around this time enjoyed an encore of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" in the 14th, then a timely number to start the 19th with the Rolling Stones hit "19th Nervous Breakdown".

Joe Panik completed a torrid series with five more hits and Johnny Cueto threw five effective innings, helping the San Francisco Giants beat Colorado 11-3 to snap a 10-game skid against the Rockies at Coors Field.

As we all remember, the Patriots would rebound from that rather light punishment, and quarterback Tom Brady would go on to break a rule that would escalate into an extremely overblown situation - ironic, I know. You can't control that.

That's not all the organization does.

When the Red Sox were batting, the team's video analysis team researched the signals being transmitted by the catcher to the pitcher as he prepared to throw the ball.

Baseball investigators corroborated the Yankees' claims based on video the commissioner's office uses for instant replay and broadcasts, the people said. Keep in mind, this all needs to take place between pitches of a baseball game.

"I mean, we were [stealing signs] at Douglas Jr".

I now work part-time in the Sports department at the Metrowest Daily News where I cover local high school sports.

"I don't know anything about that", Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner said of Boston's counterclaim.
