MLB Investigating waiver wire leaks involving the Red Sox

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.

    3rd rate organisations are prone to stuff like this

    And yes I meant 3rd, not 2nd
    Sox have always been the last one to cross the line and lagging behind everyone in everything other than gouging fans and making money.

      BIZARRE comment.

        Attempt to make any more pathetic comments directed at teenage girls who win gold for your country?

        Perhaps, you should re-assess who I directed the comments at.

        Then, and this is just a suggestion, perhaps talking things through with a qualified professional might help.

    I bet these leaks will be traced to the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

      Old School Leaking.

      Old Gator:

      I’d hate to be the leakers then. Especially when Selig cooks up some highly suspect charges and attempts to extradite them to New York to answer charges.

      At first they believe the leak came from Linda Tripp, but it would up just being John Kruk in a wig.

    Prior to this season, when leak and Red Sox were mentioned in the same sentence, I always assumed it was about the corroded plumbing in that dilapidated dump of a stadium they play in. Now, I think of beer and fried chicken, them trashing Francona, GM/player meetings, and waiver transactions.

    It’s a step up.

    Title: “MLB Investigating waiver wire leaks involving the Red Sox”

    First non quoted sentence: “Bradford notes that the Sox aren’t under suspicion for leaking. ”

    Debauchery Craig!

    FloMax can help with that.

    Someone check Adrian Gonzalez’ phone.

    Is that from an article? Can we get a link? I must say, I have no idea what a waiver wire leak is, why it would be concerning, and I wouldn’t mind reading the original article, if there is one.

    Pedroia should use a tampon to stop his leaks.

    I was wondering what the new “Hilarious Red Sox Story of the Week” would be. Looks like I didn’t have to wait long to find out.

      You are easily amused.
