  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. If they get it from somewhere else, that’s dicey.

Stanton wants both Cole, Strasburg to sign with Yankees .
It looks like Giancarlo Stanton is putting on his recruiting hat. The New York Yankees slugger recently told TMZ that he wants the club to sign both Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg this offseason. "I'm pretty sure Gerrit grew up a Yankees fan, so he'd always like to do that," Stanton said. "And, Stras, we debuted together, so he'd like that." The Yankees won the American League East in 2019 with a 103-59 record despite suffering several long-term injuries to key players, including Stanton. He appeared in only 18 regular-season games thanks to a variety of ailments to his biceps, knee, quad, and shoulder.
