St. Joseph’s sends Davidson game to overtime with absurd buzzer-beating three-pointer

  St. Joseph’s sends Davidson game to overtime with absurd buzzer-beating three-pointer Sometimes you draw up a play for a buzzer-beater and it works to perfection. And sometimes things get a little weird and work out just as perfectly. Such as was the case at the end of regulation in Saturday’s game between St. Joseph’s and Davidson. Such as was the case at the end of regulation in Saturday’s game between St. Joseph’s and Davidson. The Wildcats (6-8) had taken a 48-39 lead into halftime against the lowly St. Joe’s Hawks (3-12). However, the Hawks battled back in the second half and found themselves down 76-73 with four seconds left in the game.

Jose Altuve signaling to his teammates NOT to rip off his jersey in celebration because it would "allegedly" reveal a buzzer that would go off when triggered by someone on the Astros video team. Altuve was asked about not wanting his jersey ripped in a postgame interview with Ken Rosenthal .

An interview Ken Rosenthal conducted with Jose Altuve after the Houston Astros won the ALCS last season gained widespread attention on Thursday, but the reporter insists he did not suspect that Altuve was covering anything up when the two spoke amid a hectic celebration.

Altuve belted a walk-off home run off of New York Yankees flamethrower Aroldis Chapman in Game 6 of the ALCS, and he was seen making a conscious effort to keep his jersey closed and pleading with his teammates to not tear it off as he approached home plate. Rosenthal asked Altuve after the game about not wanting to have his jersey pulled off, and the infielder asked Rosenthal to repeat the question — the only time that interview he needed a question repeated — and then said his wife got upset last time his jersey was torn off.

Second baseman Jose Altuve — the MVP of the 2017 season and World Series — is in the crosshairs of the claims, which he vehemently denied through his agent Scott Boras.

Reds pitcher says he's heard rumors "from multiple parties" that Astros hitters had pitch-signaling Trevor Bauer adds fuel to rumor that Astros players wore buzzers under uniforms. In an on-field interview , Fox's Ken Rosenthal asked Altuve why he didn't want his teammates to tear off his jersey.

While no players were punished, later allegations that star Astros player Jose Altuve was using a buzzer to gain knowledge of incoming pitches led Reddick was accused of having a buzzer attached to him as well, as shots of him from a post-game interview appear to show a piece of tape on his chest.

After some rumors popped up about Astros players possibly wearing buzzers under their jerseys as part of their sign-stealing scheme, many looked back at the Altuve home run and interview and concluded he must have been hiding something. Rosenthal said Friday that he did not even see Altuve come to home plate, and the question the reporter asked is one that was fed to him by a FOX Sports producer in his ear piece.

Rosenthal also noted that Major League Baseball investigated the possibility of Astros players using wearable devices and found no evidence of it happening. The league found no evidence of the Astros cheating in 2019 in general.

Bauer: Sign-stealing 'a huge black eye for the sport'

  Bauer: Sign-stealing 'a huge black eye for the sport' Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer is one of baseball's most outspoken individuals, and the 29-year-old unsurprisingly offered his opinion about the results of a cheating scandal that has taken Major League Baseball by storm this week. After three managers and one general manager were either fired or agreed to part ways with the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, and New York Mets, new rumors surfaced alleging Astros players Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman used wires and buzzers under their jerseys to alert them of pitches.

Rumors were flying on social media Thursday afternoon, suggesting the Astros used a system that included vibrating bandages to tip off the hitter One of the most widely circulated clips that suggested the Astros players were wearing some sort of device was one of Jose Altuve 's walk-off homer that

The way Altuve acted was unusual, if nothing else. In addition to fumbling a bit in the Rosenthal interview, he also went to a private area to change out of his jersey and into a championship T-shirt before celebrating with his teammates. Most Astros players did not leave the field.

Altuve has denied wearing any type of electronic device, and it seems unlikely that MLB will re-open its investigation unless there is compelling new evidence.

Scott Boras says Astros players should not have to apologize .
Boras had a lot more to say on the topic, and it’s really no surprise that an agent who represents the biggest superstars in the sport would take that stance. He also currently reps Houston’s José Altuve, Lance McCullers and Aaron Sanchez. Boras defended Altuve when new allegations surfaced that Altuve and others took the cheating a step further in 2019.To say that Astros players had no idea they were breaking rules simply because Alex Cora may have been the mastermind behind the operation is absurd. We already know there was a different reason MLB chose not to punish players, but that in no way means they were innocent.
