The Truth about Goats

Red Sox cheat using a Forever Friends elasticated watch

With the aid of a 1980’s Argos catalogue, the Boston Red Sox have been using a range of iconic watches to help their performance – not least of which was hurling a broken Rolex at the catcher.  Nefarious tactics have seen the team use a Casio Football Watch for field positions and a Casio F-91W as a door stop.

The watch in question comes in a fetching floral print, with a cute bear on the dial – which can improve a batter’s average over the course of the season and become a focal point for sleep-overs. Illicitly using the watch, Red Sox players were able to distract the pitcher by getting it to shine in his face, or by licking the bear’s butt.

Stealing signs has often featured in baseball; with diverse means of communication used such as carrier pigeon, Fed-Ex or simply noticing the big TV screen on the side of the stadium.  Famously the 51 World Series was mired in controversy when the opposing coach gave an unfair advantage by shouting ‘He’s gonna throw it’.

The original accusation was that the Red Sox had surreptitiously used an Apple Watch, but as everyone knows, no one has ever worn one without waving it in front of people. One baseball player dismissed the claim that he used an Apple device: ‘Partly cuz there’s no connection to 3rd party Music Apps, but mainly cuz you look like a d$ck.’

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
