Blue Jays under fire for ludicrous allegations

Submitted by on August 11, 2011 – 2:48 amNo Comment

Four American League pitchers have reported to ESPN The Magazine they have watched a man in the outfield stands relaying pitch signals to Blue Jays batters at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

The allegations, made by four anonymous pitchers from the same unnamed AL team, accused the Jays of receiving tips from a man reading signals with binoculars from the centre field stands and relaying to the batters box the type of pitch being thrown.

While the alledgations seem somewhat ludicrous, Jays management was forced yesterday to issue a response to the rumours,  given the nature and severity of the claims. General manager Alex Anthopoulos did not pull punches when the addressing the issue at a press conference yesterday.

“This whole thing is stupid. Let’s find four players on some other team, claiming that they saw the guy in the white shirt and they saw the UFO flying across the sky,” Anthopoulos joked when asked about the allegations.

While the Jays led the league in home runs last season are are positioned towards the top of the pack in that category again this year, all indications are that, if the team has a spy in the stands, he isn’t doing a very good job.

The lone Canadian MLB team is a mere two games over .500 at home, with an overall record of 59-57 for the 2011 campaign.
