Are the Astros using a camera to steal signs in the Game 5 of the American League Division Series? One former Rays pitcher seems to think so.

Seth McClung, who made his MLB debut at 22 with the-then Devil Rays in 2002 and pitched for the organization for three years, pointed out Tampa Bay was using multiple signs when there were no runners on base in the fourth inning.

He believes that indicates the Rays think Houston is using a camera to steal signs and relay them to hitters.

"The @RaysBaseball using multiple signs from the catcher to the pitcher with no @astros on base... folks, that means the Rays feel there is a camera on their catchers signs & that someway #Houston is relaying them to the hitters," McClung wrote on Twitter.

Now, a lot of times this could be looked at as a former pitcher for an organization simply assuming the worst when a team isn't playing well. But here's the thing: the Astros have already been accused of this before, as have the Dodgers. So this is a current issue in MLB and not completely out of left field.

Last year during the American League Championship Series between the Astros and the Red Sox, Houston had a staffer caught taking photos of Boston's dugout at Fenway Park. MLB did nothing real to punish Houston for it, but the accusations did fly suggesting the team was stealing signs.

Rays pummel Greinke, Morton clutch vs Astros to win Game 3

  Rays pummel Greinke, Morton clutch vs Astros to win Game 3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Charlie Morton to the rescue, again. Kevin Kiermaier hit a go-ahead, three-run homer as Tampa Bay teed off on Zack Greinke, and the Rays got another clutch playoff performance from Morton to beat the Houston Astros 10-3 Monday and cut their AL Division Series deficit to 2-1. Facing the team he helped win the World Series two years ago, Morton allowed one run and three hits while striking out nine over five innings. The 35-year-old right-hander is 4-0 with an 0.95 ERA in four career elimination starts, including last week's wild-card win at Oakland."It's just what Charlie's done all year," manager Kevin Cash said.

The Brewers also accused the Dodgers of a similar offense during the National League Championship Series the same year. They directly accused Los Angeles of using a camera to steal signs.

Houston scored three runs before the Rays recorded an out in the first inning off of Tyler Glasnow in Game 5. It scored four first-inning runs. Glasnow allowed two runs in 4 1/3 innings in Game 1 and didn't give up a run until the fifth in that start.

It was also suggested Glasnow was tipping pitches in that inning as well as MLB free agent Trevor Plouffe said on Twitter he knew what the righty was throwing after one inning during spring training.

The Astros are also known for catching tipped pitches as they famously did so in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series. So at this point there are a lot of guesses as to why Glasnow struggled and it will be hard to know for sure what happened until players and managers talk after the game.

Report: Yankees believe Astros were stealing signs by whistling in Game 1 of ALCS .
According to a report, a Yankees coach noticed a whistling sound coming from the Houston dugout before certain pitches during the ALCS opener at Minute Maid Park. The Yankees became angry and yelled across the field, believing the whistling was a form of sign-stealing and was being used to alert batters to what pitch was coming.A number of coaches and executives said that such an act would be widely considered a violation of the sport’s “unwritten rules.”“They are NASA,” one coach said. “If a pitcher is tipping and the players can see from the dugout, no biggie.
