It won't be easy for Boston, however, as the Astros hand the ball to Justin Verlander, who arguably has been baseball's best starting pitcher over the past two postseasons.

He stood out because he was wearing a suit jacket in a restricted area reserved for photographers, a member of the team's social media department and where TV reporters are permitted to stand, one of the sources said.

According to Metro Boston, a man was removed from media area next to the Boston Red Sox dugout during Game 1 of the ALCS. The initial implication was that the employee was attempting to steal signs and relay them to the Astros. It's still fishy and the league told the Astros not to do that anymore and report it to the proper authorities.

The Red Sox jumped on starter Charlie Morton - who finished the regular season 15-3 with a 3.13 ERA - right away, and he only lasted 2 1/3 innings. News also has come in that Chris Sale will not pitch game 5, how will thie affect the Red Sox going forward with a 2-1 series lead in the balance?

When presented with the details of the incident and the warning given to security heading into Game 1, a Red Sox spokesman said on Tuesday, "It is an Major League Baseball matter, so no one from the Red Sox would be commenting".

Scott Miller says sign stealing is all people have been talking about.

If anything, the series of reports serves as a reminder and/or an eye-opener that most, if not all teams throughout the league are willing to push the boundaries and utilize technology in an effort to gain a competitive edge. Another strike out down 8-6 with a runner on third in the eighth ended a rally there, but an wonderful diving catch from Josh Reddick with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth kept hope alive.

Sign-stealing has been an accepted part of baseball culture for decades, but technological advances have blurred the line between gamesmanship and cheating.

These Red Sox seem to treat imposing road locales with the same laissez-faire attitude that Rocky Balboa treated Russian Federation when he took on Ivan Drago. "... The game is changing". And we don't get caught up in the whole paranoia thing [with] the signs. By watching the other dugout, he broke the rules to make sure the other team wasn't breaking the rules, basically.
