The MLB came out with their punishments for the apple watch debacle today. The Red Sox have been fined an undisclosed amount that the league says they will donate to hurricane relief funds. The league said they found insufficient evidence that the Yankees used YES cameras to cheat, which is what the Sox said in reaction to getting caught. BUT the Yankees did get fined for misuse of bullpen phone from a previous playoff series.
It's exactly what everyone with a brain knew it was.
The Sox got caught cheating. The Yankees sent the league a detailed report proving it and when the league confronted the Red Sox they said, "Yeah but, YEAH BUT, they probably cheat too, you ever see that camera they have in centerfield? They're using that to cheat! I mean what is it even doing there! They are obviously cheating! We may have used small watches but they're using GIANT CAMERAS!"
The league treated the situation the same way you see the police deal with crackheads on COPS. They begrudgingly walked over to the Yankees and said, "listen, they admitted to cheating but they're saying you guys did as well. Those cameras in centerfield... you use them to film the game right? I mean, surely that's why they are there, right?"
"Yeah, that's how we get the main shot of the batter that's displayed on the screen 80 percent of the time."
"Okay that's what we thought but we had to ask, thanks."
League walks back to the Red Sox, "Yeah nah, those cameras are legit. Nothing going on there".
Red Sox, now in hand cuffs and pathetically desperate, start shouting, "WHAT ABOUT IN 2004! THEY USED THE BULLPEN PHONE TO RELAY SECRETS! WE HAVE PROOF! WE WON THAT SERIES SO WE DIDN'T CARE AT THE TIME BUT CHEATING IS CHEATING, ARREST THEM TOO!"
The league takes a deep breath, walks back over to the Yankees and says, "I hate myself for even asking but did you use a bullpen phone to cheat back in 2004?"
"Yeah, maybe, I dunno. That was 13 years ago."
"Well do you mind if we give you a tiny fine? We don't even have to actually fine you, we'll just say we fined you to shut them up. Does that work for you?"
"Yeah, sure, we don't care," The Yankees shrug "it was 14 years ago".
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
