It’s been a wild couple of weeks in Major League Baseball. After the sport was entirely shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic, baseball’s future has been a mystery. So much so that fans started to wonder if the punishment for the Red Sox’s involvement in a cheating scandal was going to slip through the cracks. Well, we finally have an answer to that.

It sounds like Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has completed his investigation on the Red Sox electronic sign-stealing scandal. This comes months after the Houston Astros had received punishment for their part in a massive electronic sign-stealing scandal that rocked the sport and fans. 

We are done with the investigation. There’s been a delay in terms of producing a written report just because I frankly have not had time to turn to it. … We will get a Boston report out before we resume play.

Dodgers fans were somewhat concerned about this for a few reasons. First and foremost, there were fears that newly acquired David Price and Mookie Betts would be implicated in the scandal and thus suffer consequences. The two have apparently already been cleared, per the Dodgers. 

The other reason is that the Dodgers played the Red Sox in the 2018 World Series. If Boston did use that electronic surveillance during the 2018 series, then that would make two straight championships in which they faced teams that allegedly cheated Los Angeles out of. 

Rob Manfred made the comment during an interview with ESPN’S Scott Van Pelt on SportsCenter.
