The Los Angeles Dodgers hired the services of JT Watkins, a former Red Sox video coordinator who was involved in the 2018 sign-stealing scandal., for which he was suspended for a period of one year. The aforementioned character was also recommended by Mookie Betts and JD Martínez, who also made it clear that the aforementioned theft of signs did exist.

Watkins was hired by the Dodgers for the position of hitting coach., and both Betts and Martínez assured that the aforementioned event in 2018 was not something serious in their opinion, although they recognized that if there was sign theft, they affirmed that the intention was never to cheat. Mookie Betts also asked that he be given the recognition that team deserved.

It’s a little hard to remember. People are trying to make us look like we’ve been cheating. Give us a little credit. We had a good team with Cy Young, MVP, Gold Glove and Silver Slugger winners, they should take these aspects into account when judgingMookie Betts told Los Angeles Times.

Nevertheless, Betts confirmed a detail published in the book “Winning Fixes Everything” by Evan Drellich, in which he claims that Red Sox players donated money to Watkins while he was suspended. and without receiving his salary.

It should be remembered that MLB investigations confirmed that the 2018 Red Sox had a video sign-stealing system, though it was only useful when the team was batting with a runner on second pad.. However, said impact was much less than that of the Houston Astros in 2017.
