After dealing with someone spying into their dugout in the ALCS, the Red Sox are being spied on again apparently. According to Scott Miller of Bleacher Report, Manny Machado was relaying signs to hitters from second base and the Red Sox knew it, including pitching coach Dana LeVangie.
“I wish I would have gone out there before the [Yasiel] Puig at-bat, before he came up in that situation, because I saw the whole thing,” LeVangie told Miller after the game. Even relaying signs, the Sox were able to defeat the Dodgers 4-2 and take a 2-0 series lead.

You know whats sad about Machado, other than the fact that he’s going to be a Yankee next year? The fact they they are stealing signs and still losing. Imagine stealing signs, communicating with your team what pitch is coming, and STILL losing? That’s gotta be painful. That’s like getting all the correct answers to the test written on your hand, only to write down the incorrect ones.
Tonight, the Red Sox look to make a statement. We all know 3-0 is a deficit that can be overcome, but if the Red Sox win tonight, this thing is as good as over. The only thing that breaks my heart about it is potentially not closing this thing out at home. But when you get to celebrate a championship, it doesn’t matter where it is. That’s just how spoiled I’ve become. Now I want to determine WHERE we win a championship. What a city we live in!
