This is kind of unusual and interesting. Rob Bradford of WEEI reports:
According to an industry source, Major League Baseball is investigating the unusually high number of reports regarding waiver wire activity involving the Sox throughout August.
Bradford notes that the Sox aren’t under suspicion for leaking. Which makes sense given the incentives involved. Probably worth noting that the Dodgers — even before the big trade happened — were frequently reported to be making claims. Not sure what their incentives would be either, frankly.
More to come, I presume.
