The Colorado Rockies allege that Phillies bullpen coach Mick Billmeyer used binoculars to steal signs from catcher Miguel Olivo during Monday night's game, which proved to be a 9-5 win for Philadelphia.
Now, everyone knows that sign stealing happens. And it's one thing for players to use their own wits and their own eyeballs to "steal" the catcher's signs to the pitcher. But what if tools and coaches are employed? Is that far more cheaty?
Not that this proves anything, but MLB has issued a "warning" to the Phillies.
