Report: Yankees believe Astros were stealing signs by whistling in Game 1 of ALCS

  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.

As MLB continues its investigation into allegations of sign-stealing by the Houston Astros during the 2017 season, the Wikipedia page for the 2017 World Series received a wild edit that reflects the controversy quite well.

While the Houston Astros are still listed as World Series champions, the World Series MVP is now listed as the “Centerfield cameraman (Houston).”

Astros outfielder George Springer was awarded MVP honors after the Astros defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games. However, reports of Houston using cameras to steal signs and using signals to alert hitters are bringing the team’s success into question.

Ex-Astros say team electronically stole signs during 2017 season

  Ex-Astros say team electronically stole signs during 2017 season While the Astros have denied the numerous sign-stealing allegations against them, the former members of their World Series team described the practice they used that season in detail. According to the report, a feed from the camera in the outfield was linked to a television that was positioned on a wall in the tunnel that runs between the home dugout and the clubhouse at Minute Maid Park.

This all reportedly began when an executive for the Astros allegedly asked scouts for help stealing signs. MLB teams, including the Dodgers, were aware of the Astros’ actions and tried to alert MLB.

While we don’t know what the potential punishment for the Astros will be if MLB’s investigation determines they cheated, this Wikipedia edit is at least a nice troll for the time being.
