MLB Trying to Put the Astros Spying Claims to Bed Quickly

MLB News and Rumors

Sensing, perhaps, that the crazy and ridiculous story about the Astros spying on other clubs to steal signs was about to escalate to levels beyond that of the actual postseason games, MLB quickly acted to squash the story today.

So, in other words, all that crazy stuff about the Astros stealing signs last year against the Dodgers and earlier this year against the Athletics, and then using an off-the-books employee to do reconnaissance work next to the Indians’ dugout in the ALDS and the Red Sox’s dugout in the ALCS … nothing to see here.

I understand MLB wanting this story to be squashed, but this feels a bit absurd. At least give the appearance that you’re going to take seriously credible allegations that a team has been using technology and non-player personnel to do some cheating.
