    The Red Sox got caught using Apple Watches to steal signs against the Yankees

    The Boston Red Sox have been using an Apple Watch to gain the upper hand while stealing signs, according to a report from Michael S. Schmidtof the New York Times.

    The investigation began about two weeks ago, after the Yankees, currently second in the AL East behind the leading Red Sox, filed a complaint with the commissioner's office. Schmidt writes:

    "The Yankees, who had long been suspicious of the Red Sox stealing catchers' signs in Fenway Park, contended the video showed a member of the Red Sox training staff looking at his Apple Watch in the dugout and then relaying a message to players, who may have then been able to use the information to know the type of pitch that was going to be thrown, according to the people familiar with the case."

    The commissioner's office reportedly corroborated the Yankees' evidence with video from the league. Once confronted with the findings, the Red Sox "admitted that their trainers had received signals from video replay personnel and then relayed that information to some players — an operation that had been in place for at least several weeks," The Times reported.

    But the drama did not end there. On Tuesday, the Red Sox filed a complaint of their own, arguing that the Yankees were using a camera from the YES Network to steal signs — a claim the Yankees declined to comment on, according to The Times.

    While sign stealing is permitted, it is against the rules to do so using anything but your eyes.

    Do you agree?

    Ok sports fans, "stealing signs" has been around since the game started. It's an "unwritten" rule.Now who to say that this has not been going on in the past? Now they got caught. Opppps. So does this mean that the catchers signals should be blurred out during broadcast? So they are not reveling anything? Which brings up, "game films" everyone uses them.... learn the weakness of your opposing team
