Red Sox have evidence of Yankees using YES feed to steal signs



BALTIMORE — Apparently, the latest Yankee-Red Sox scandal isn’t over.


The Red Sox have reportedly sent video evidence to the MLB commissioner’s office that shows a YES Network camera pointed at bench coach Gary DiSarcina during a recent game at Yankee Stadium, according to ESPN.


The report said the Red Sox had DiSarcina alter his dugout position to avoid the Yankees potentially stealing signs as a result.


The Bombers have strongly denied Boston’s YES Network accusations, with one source calling it “complete nonsense.”


“Not a chance,” Joe Girardi said Tuesday.


On Tuesday, MLB determined that the Red Sox used an Apple Watch to steal signs from the Yankees’ catchers during their August series at Fenway Park. Boston ultimately admitted as much after being approached by the league.


No penalties — if any — have been given as of yet.

Dustin Pedroia didn't seem concerned with the allegations against his team.

“To involve YES in your scam so you can try to slither away from what you did wrong offends me,” Michael Kay said Wednesday on his ESPN radio show. “Because I’m part of YES.”


Kay added: “I would know, I would have heard if this was something YES was involved in. I will guarantee you that is totally fraudulent what the Red Sox are actually claiming.”


Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who was involved in iGate, weighed in:


“[MLB] had a good picture of me, Brock (Holt), and CY (Chris Young) hanging out though,” Pedroia said, according to CSN New England. “I do know that. And I was talking to the trainer about what time I’m rehabbing the next day because I’m on the DL, I was on the DL. And they had a nice (picture) of Doug (Fister) with an earpiece in. It was his mouthguard.


“So I mean, it’s baseball, man,” Pedroia added. “We already played them 19 times. They beat us how many, 11? They beat us. I’m not going to cry to anybody about it. That’s baseball.”
