Astros may have been cheating in Game 1 against Red Sox

Sign-stealing has been an issue all series. It was reported that the man "had a small camera and was texting frequently, but did not have a media credential".

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported the Cleveland Indians filed a complaint with Major League Baseball regarding the Astros trying to film the inside of their dugout during Game 3 of the ALDS.

The Red Sox had been warned before their series-opening game, the AP was told.

"I'm aware of something going on, but I haven't been briefed", Astros manager A.J. Hinch said after Tuesday's Game 3 loss to the Sox. A Tony Kemp fourth inning home run gave Houston their first lead of the game at 4-3, but a Jackie Bradley Jr. two-run bomb gave Boston a 6-5 advantage in the sixth.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he's open to the idea of nuclear power if research emerges showing it stacks up economically. The status of Jerusalem is perhaps the thorniest issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Boston Metro's report said the Astros may have been caught in Game 1, but it also clearly was something that went back to Houston's ALDS series victory over the Indians. He was then removed from the media-credentialed area.

If it can be proven the Astros were using a covertly placed "employee" and technology in an over-the-top way to steal signs, and all signs are pointing to that, they should and will be punished somehow.

Scott Miller says sign stealing is all people have been talking about. Another strike out down 8-6 with a runner on third in the eighth ended a rally there, but an awesome diving catch from Josh Reddick with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth kept hope alive. Hoynes notes in his column that Cleveland worked so diligently to protect its signs in the weeks leading up to the ALDS that the efforts "bordered on paranoia". "... The game is changing. You've just got to stay in tune with everything".

"With respect to both incidents regarding a Houston Astros employee, security identified an issue, addressed it and turned the matter over to the Department of Investigations". As Drellich examines, the lack of clear rules in place and the unnecessarily hushed manner in which the league handles such scenarios only incentivizes teams to continue rule-bending/breaking and to make accusations in the first place.
