Keith Strudler: Stealing Signs

Sep 6, 2017

Here’s the least surprising thing you’ll hear today. A sports team from Boston was caught cheating. Here’s the second least surprising thing. The victim of their crime was a team from New York. Now perhaps one surprise is that the accused isn’t the Patriots. But otherwise, this is about as surprising a sunrise.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have taken a three-games-to-two lead in the Stanley Cup finals as they try to become the NHL's first repeat champions since the 1998 Red Wings. Matt Murray turned back 24 shots and the Penguins scored three times in each of the first two periods for a 6-0 rout of the visiting Nashville Predators. The offensive uprising came after the Pens were held to just two goals while dropping the previous two games in Nashville.

Scooter Gennett has tied a major league record by homering four times for the Cincinnati Reds against the St. Louis Cardinals tonight. Gennett, who drove in 10 runs, connected for his second career grand slam off Adam Wainwright, then had a solo homer and two two-run shots as he became the 17th major leaguer with four in a game and the first since Josh Hamilton in 2012. No player has ever hit more than four in a game. Gennett singled his first time up and then homered in four straight at bats as Cincinnati hammered the Cards 13-1. His 10 RBIs matched the club record.

    The Red Sox musical Johnny Baseball is now running on the Nikos Stage at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Johnny Baseball brings to life the "Curse of the Bambino" through the stories of three orphaned souls -- hard-luck 1919 Red Sox right-hander Johnny O'Brien; his idol, Babe Ruth, and Daisy Wyatt, a dazzling African-American blues singer. Their intertwining fates reveal the source of the curse and the secret to its triumphant end in 2004, while also examining social and racial undertones that have impacted the team throughout its history.

Willie Reale wrote the lyrics and conceived the story of Johnny Baseball with playwright Richard Dresser.

It is finally here; tonight marks the start of the 2012 Major League Baseball season, otherwise known as opening day.

We’re talking baseball today and we want your take on the upcoming season. Will the New York Yankess re-take the crown and continue their overall winning record? Can the Boston Red Sox pull another coup and take the American League East pennant? Will the New York Mets’ wins add up to double digits?
