When I first saw this, I legitimately thought it was an article on The Onion, but it turns out, this Yankees/Red Sox rivalry is single handedly getting renewed with Apple Watches, bunting and mouth guards.
The Yankees filed another complaint accusing Red Sox pitcher Doug Fister of using an illegal electronic ear piece.
From CSNNE’s Evan Drellich: “The Yankees went to MLB with a complaint about what they thought to be an earpiece — some sort of impermissible audio device — that Fister was using,” Drellich reported before dropping the bombshell: “The purported audio device was a mouth guard that Fister was wearing wrapped around his ear.”
The only problem was, it wasn’t an electronic ear piece, it was a freaking mouth guard hanging on his ear:

Who is running the New York Yankees? A bunch of teenage girls? What the heck is going on? Stealing signs, ok fine, report that, but everyone does it. You are simply lying if you say you aren’t trying to steal signs. If you aren’t cheating, you aren’t trying. Personally, I would have loved if Fister had some sort of illegal ear piece, spice things up a little bit, these two team needs a real heated rivalry. At least it could possibly explain why Aaron Judge and Aroldis Chapman are literally owned by the Boston Red Sox.
The Yankees are so quick to call the Sox cheaters but very quickly forget about this:
