POLL: MLB says Allegations against Houston Astros not major


The stakes are high as the Astros take on the Red Sox in the American League Championship Series. And nerves seem to be frayed, with new allegations surfacing that the Astros may have cheated during Game One over the weekend at Fenway Park.

According to reports, Major League Baseball had looked into the allegations that security at Fenway Park removed a man who claimed to be an Astros employee from an area designated for credentialed media next to the Red Sox' dugout during the third inning of Game 1. According to the report, the man had a small camera and was texting frequently.

Yahoo's Jeff Passan reported Tuesday night that the Red Sox were warned by the Indians, whom the Astros swept during the ALDS, that Houston would attempt to steal signs and information.

So Major League Baseball looked into allegations, but does not consider it to be a major matter, according to MLB Network's Joel Sherman.

And Forbes reported overnight that a source with knowledge of the situation but asked to speak anonymously said that while the person in question was with the Astros, he was actually trying to ensure that the Red Sox were not the ones cheating.

Boston leads the series 2-games-to-1 with Game Four set for tonight.
