Red Sox aren't only team with cheating allegations against Astros

After reports came out this week that an Astros employee was removed from Fenway Park during Game 1 for attempting to take photos of the Red Sox dugout, a number of cheating allegations against the reigning World Series Champions have arisen. 

In a story published by Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan, the allegations against Houston were revealed.

Kyle McLaughlin, the same man removed from Fenway, was removed from Cleveland's Progressive Field during Game 3 of the ALDS for taking pictures of the Indians dugout. McLaughlin is not listed as an official employee of the Astros, but a picture of him with Astros' owner Jim Crane and a photo of him in front of an Astros private plane have been removed from his Instagram.

The report goes on to detail other investigations into the Astros. In August, Oakland A's players believed that the Astros were stealing signs. The A's believed players in the Houston dugout were using claps as a way of relaying pitches to hitters. There was an MLB investigation, but the resolution is unclear.

In the last couple years, two other major leagues have claimed to see the Astros hitting a trash can in the dugout as a way to relay signs. 

Sources say the Dodgers also believed that Houston was stealing signs in last year's World Series.

According to ESPN, sources believe that the incident in Fenway Park will likely result in nothing more than a fine.
