Red Sox, Yankees fined in sign-stealing flap

Red Sox, Yankees fined in sign-stealing flap

The New York Yankees were not fined for allegedly using YES Network cameras to spy on Red Sox signs, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Major League Baseball announced Friday afternoon that Boston will be fined "an undisclosed amount" for using an Apple Watch to steal catchers' signs; it will then be donated "to hurricane relief efforts in Florida".

The Red Sox have 15 regular season games remaining.

The Rays will counter with right hander Alex Cobb (11-9, 3.59), who won his last start against the Red Sox on September 10 when he gave up a run and four hits and had five strikeouts in five innings. They maintain a three-game lead over the Yankees for first place in the AL East. "We want to remind everyone that just as baseball is fundamental to American culture and history, so, too, is racism".

The Red Sox's run has also coincided with the healthy return of Dustin Pedroia, who is 9-for-13 in the last four games, returning to a reliable role in the lineup after missing 30 games due to left knee inflammation.

Red Sox president Sam Kennedy, reacting to the anti-racism banner that was hung from the Green Monster Wednesday night, defended the area by telling WEEI, "Let me say this about Boston and the state of MA: we are extremely proud to live here and be here". Alex Colome received his 6th blown save of the season, while Austin Pruitt took the loss to fall to 7-5 this season. Cobb has won his last two starts and is has traditionally had success against Boston, going 6-3 with a 3.32 ERA in 13 career starts.

Price threw a simulated game on Wednesday and said "I don't know what else I have to do". Deven Marrero added two RBIs with a double, while Xander Bogaerts went 4 for 7 with two RBIs. Manager John Farrell said Thursday he looked good in two simulated games. "Spiking a lot of the cutters and kept trying to go to it, but it wasn't there for him".

Pomeranz (16-5) is 10-1 with a 2.61 ERA since June 16.

Manfred's penalty was toothless for a franchise worth billions of dollars, and time will tell whether the get-out-of-jail free card will embolden other teams to try (or continue) to do the same - and whether they'll take the commissioner's warning against future violations any more seriously than a teenager who gets off with a warning. It's nice being able to sit here now after the fact.
