Red Sox aren't only team with cheating allegations against Astros

The Astros reportedly try to train cameras on the opposing catcher, manager and bench coach in an effort to steal signs and pick up tendencies. The man was removed from the area "several times" by security personnel, a source told The Associated Press. Right ankle. Same ankle I hurt in the last game of the season against the Yankees.

Making matters more suspicious, McLaughlin may have already been on the team's mind, as the Cleveland Indians are believed to have warned the Sox ahead of time to keep their eyes on the guy, according to Yahoo!. The incident isn't expected to amount to anything more than a fine for Houston, according to a report from ESPN.

Sale struggled with his control in Boston's 7-2 loss to the Astros in the series opener Saturday night.

"That's the pitch I always get him out with", Osuna said.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora was unwilling to commit either way Tuesday after Boston's 8-2 win in Game 3 of the ALCS at Minute Maid Park, but the first-year skipper did reveal some positive news regarding Sale's availability moving forward.

"We don't get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs", Cora said.

The Astros went 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position in the first home game of the series, which was played in front of a sellout crowd of 43,102 and included Astros Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell and Houston Rockets stars James Harden, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony.

Bauer didn't provide any specifics or evidence to back up the claim, however. They really did just a fantastic job over there of being ready and prepared before the series. Porcello is going to have to be flawless with his pitch locations in order to have a chance at shutting the Astros down and I think that Houston's going to break him early on in the game, enough to give them a victory and tie the series at 2-2. Sale instead is expected to throw off a mound Wednesday before Game 4.
