Alex Cora brushes off talk of Manny Machado sign-stealing
The Boston Red Sox aren’t allowing themselves to be distracted by their own allegations that Manny Machado stole signs.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora was brisk in dismissing that line of questioning on Friday, directing the questions to Red Sox pitching coach Dana LeVangie, who originally brought up the allegations.
Alex Cora not interested in sign stealing discussion. Asked about Machado: "I don’t know, you gotta ask Dana [LeVangie] that one.⁰"

It’s worth noting that LeVangie himself was not too terribly concerned about the sign theft, if it indeed was happening. Cora sounds like he really wants nothing to do with it.
Sign theft has been a major storyline in these playoffs thanks largely to the Houston Astros. This didn’t involve any video or anything like that, so it doesn’t really seem to be a huge deal to anyone involved.
